Report: N.Y. Yankees Sign LHP Matt Thornton
(NEW YORK) -- The New York Yankees and free agent reliever Matt Thornton agreed to a two-year contract on Tuesday, worth $7 million according to ESPN. The deal is pending a physical. The 37-year-old Thornton will most likely serve as the Yankees main left-handed out of the bullpen, a role that belonged to Boone Logan in 2013. Logan left New York as a free agent this off-season for the Colorado Rockies, signing a three-year deal at $16.5 million.
