Report: Robertson Signs With The White Sox

Say bye bye to David Robertson. Looks like he's heading to the Chicago White Sox. The early reports are saying he signed for four years/$46M.

Robertson, who took over as closer after Mariano Rivera's retirement, had a very respectable 2014, picking up 39 saves in 44 tries, which ranked him third in the AL in that category. He had a 3.08 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 96 strikeouts in 64.1 innings pitched. In his career with the Yankees, Robertson posted a 2.81 ERA with 524 strikeouts in 393.1 innings.

After Andrew Miller was signed over the weekend, Yankee fans wondered if maybe the team would re-sign Robertson and have Miller help set up, along with Dellin Betances. Guess that's not happening now!

We'll definitely have more reaction to this move after everyone else wakes up.

UPDATE: More details are emerging about the Robertson deal. Here are some tweets from various writers.

I find what Curry said both interesting and annoying. I'm sick of the Yankees just letting good players walk. Is four years/$46M all that unreasonable? Not really. Maybe they have something up their sleeves and it's totally possible that they'll use the money they saved by not re-signing D-Rob to sign someone else. We'll find out as the Winter Meetings roll on.
