NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says the New York Yankees have reached agreement with outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million.
Ellsbury, who helped Boston win the World Series this year, is the second major free-agent addition in the Yankees' offseason rebuilding. He was to take a physical in New York on Wednesday, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized.
The Yankees also had been negotiating with Shin-Soo Choo, who like Ellsbury is represented by agent Scott Boras.
Earlier Tuesday, New York finalized an $85 million, five-year contract with All-Star catcher Brian McCann.
