Breaking: Yankees Sign LHP Justin Wilson!

After being heavily speculated for the last few days, the Yankees are said to have gotten a deal done with LHP Justin Wilson, according to Sweeny Murti of WFAN. He was a Yankee last in 2015, Wilson was traded to the Detroit Tigers for Chad Green and Luis Cessa, and most recently spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons with the New York Mets.

The deal looks to be a 1-Year/$4 Million deal according to Andy Martino of SNY. Although, there are rumblings it may be for more…

Yankees deal with Justin Wilson is done. Rejoins Yankees, pitched for them in 2015. — Sweeny Murti (@YankeesWFAN) February 15, 2021
Should be for around $4 mil this year — Andy Martino (@martinonyc) February 15, 2021
Source confirms: Free-agent reliever Justin Wilson in agreement with Yankees, pending physical. First: @ByRobertMurray. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) February 15, 2021
Apologies to Sweeny. HE was first! — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) February 15, 2021
Also doesn’t sound like it’s a straight one year deal. — Andy Martino (@martinonyc) February 15, 2021
The 40-man is currently full, but they could just put Luis Severino on the 60-day IL on Weds when pitchers and catchers report. Thank you to @j_nyy for the reminder!! — Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) February 15, 2021

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
