Yankees sign Brian McCann to five-year, $85 million deal

USA TODAY Sports

Brian McCann will be the next Yankees catcher, pending a physical. He and the Yankees have agreed to a five-year deal worth $85 million with a sixth year vesting option that could bring the deal to $100 million total.


After punting on the catcher spot in 2013, the team went and signed the biggest free agent catcher on the market. McCann has spent his entire career with the Atlanta Braves to this point, batting .256/.336/.461 in 102 games last season. The 29-year-old catcher owns a career .277/.350/.473 line. He posted consecutive 20 home run season in 2012 and 2013 with Atlanta.

This may not be the Yankees' biggest move of the offseason if they can bring back Robinson Cano, but it is the place where they will likely see the biggest upgrade over last season's numbers.
