Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that the New York Yankees have signed free agent reliever Adam Ottavino. Robert Murray of The Athletic says the deal will be in the neighborhood of three years and $27 million. More precise details to come.

Ottavino, 33, is coming off of the strongest season in his career, saving six games and posting an ERA of 2.43 ERA while striking out 13 batters per nine innings across 77.2 innings of work in 75 games. He did that with half of his games coming in Coors Field, where he was dominant.

He will join Aroldis Chapman, Zach Britton, Dellin Betances and Chad Green in another amazingly strong Yankees bullpen.
