The Yankees are in the middle of the youth movement, but they will have a veteran DH in their lineup next year.
Sunday night, the club agreed to terms with veteran outfielder Matt Holliday on a one-year contract. He became a free agent earlier this offseason when the Cardinals declined his $17 million club option.
Ken Rosenthal reports the deal is worth $13-million for one year.
Holliday, 36, hit .246/.322/.461 (107 OPS+) with 20 home runs in 110 games around a thumb injury in 2016. He'll step in as New York's full-time DH, which figures to help him stay healthy and avoid wearing down later in the season.
