The New York Yankees and free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury have agreed on a seven-year contract valued at $153 million dollars, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. There is also an eighth year option that could raise the total value to $169 million. Ellsbury will also cost the Yankees a first round draft pick.

Ellsbury batted .298/.355/.436 with 31 doubles, 8 triples, 9 home runs and a league-leading 52 stolen bases this year with 92 runs scored.

Wow, that’s some big-time money… But these are the Yankees who play in one of largest sports markets in the world…

However, this probably means the end of any Robinson Cano and Yankees reunion, and Curtis Granderson too for that matter.

The other five teams in on Ellsbury, now move over to Curtis Granderson…
