Yankees and Jacoby Ellsbury reportedly closing in on seven-year deal


The Yankees and free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury are reportedly nearing a seven-year deal that would exceed the deal Carl Crawford signed with the Red Sox of $142 million, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Rumors began swirling earlier that Ellsbury would be in New York tomorrow to take a physical and it now looks as though those reports may have something to them.

Carlos Beltran had previously been rumored as the Yankees' top outfield target, but with a three-year, $48 million deal on the table with another team, it's possible that they Yankees turned to Ellsbury.

We'll have more as it comes.
