Masahiro Tanaka has decided to sign with the New York Yankees, his agent confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.

Tanaka's deal with the Yankees is worth $155 million over seven years and includes an opt-out clause after the fourth year, his agent, Casey Close said in a text message. Close had a deadline of 5 p.m. ET on Friday to have a contract and physical completed with the ace pitcher's new team.

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.

Tanaka will join a revamped roster with the Yankees, who also have signed outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, catcher Brian McCann and slugger Carlos Beltran to lucrative contracts this offseason. Those deals totaled $438 million.

Rays about to trade Torres - RP for utility infielder.   Guy did a great job for us last year.

I can't say I understand getting rid of Torres of a swing player.  Torres did an outstanding job last season.

Detrimental:
I wonder who they have at mind at as the closer.

Revis and Butt-head:
Getting rid of Torres sucks.  He was our best bullpen guy last year.

All The Way Tampa Bay:

olafberserker:
Guess that answers that question

Biggs3535:
I always thought it was a mistake when they let Balfour go.  Glad he's back.  Love to watch him cuss up a storm on the mound.
