Tanaka likely will become the team's new ace on the team and will be paired with CC Sabathia atop of the Yankees rotation and many consider the Yankees to be back into playoff contention with the signing of the 25-year-old right-hander.
On the Yankees official Twitter account, they posted an image with Tanaka in uniform:

The Yankees have yet to schedule Tanaka's press conference to introduce him to the media and officially unveil him, but likely will do so at a future date.
