Aroldis Chapman has reached a new deal with the Yankees and will remain with the team through the 2022 season, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.
Chapman added an extra year at $18 million to go with the existing $30 million he was set to receive over the next two seasons. So the Yanks will give the closer $48 million over the next three years.
Chapman was in talks with the Yankees to try and rework the remaining two years and $30 million left on his contract, reported earlier in the night on Saturday by MLB Network's Jon Heyman, and it looks that the two sides came to a quick agreement.
Chapman, 31, was named the AL Reliever of the Year after finishing the season with a 2.21 ERA (2.28 FIP) and 1.11 WHIP with 85 strikeouts in 60 IP.
With Chapman now in the fold for the next three years, and Zack Britton and Tommy Kahnle not set to both potentially hit free agency till 2021, the Yankees bullpen appears set for dominance as the team prepares to contend for the foreseeable future.
The Yankees can now set their main focus on starting pitching and seeing which of their other in-house free agents -- like Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius -- they'll bring back next season.
