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…

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
