Report: Ellsbury, Yankees Agree To 7-Year, $153M Deal

BOSTON (CBS) – Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has agreed to a deal with the New York Yankees.

Sources tell MLB insider Jon Heyman of CBS Sports that the deal is for seven years and $153 million.

Neither the Yankees nor Ellsbury’s agent, Scott Boras, immediately confirmed a deal had been struck, but sources suggest there are only final details left to be ironed out.

The Red Sox extended a qualifying offer to Ellsbury, so the team will receive a compensatory draft pick if the deal is finalized.
