The Yankees ended a very quiet Saturday with the signing of Zach Britton to a three-year contract. Jon Heyman is credited with breaking the news:
The signing has also been confirmed by the YES Network:
Jeff Passan has the financials…
My initial thought is that this is a very good signing. Britton, when he is right, is a top tier reliever. He’s also two years younger then David Robertson and left-handed. The Yankees are stacked with right-handed relievers and young right-handed arms in the minors. They do not have a collection of strong lefty bullpen arms. They needed to make this deal. The team is stronger with Britton than without him.
We will have more as information comes along with some thoughts on this signing tomorrow.
