Hit the jump for details…
Masahiro Tanaka has decided to sign with the New York Yankees, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Buster Olney.
Tanaka’s deal with the Yankees is worth $155 million over seven years and includes an opt-out clause after the fourth year, according to the source.
Tanaka, 25, went 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA in the Japanese League last season and is considered by many to be a top-of-the-rotation starter.
Under new rules set this offseason, the Yankees also owe a $20 million posting fee to the Rakuten Golden Eagles, Tanaka’s team in Japan. The right-hander was still under contract with the Eagles for two more years.
