(AP) — competition for an opening in their rotation, agreeing to a minor league contract with veteran right-hander Ervin Santana on Friday.A person familiar with the situation confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the agreement is pending a successful physical. If added to the 40-man roster, Santana would get a one-year contract paying $4.3 million while in the major leagues.Carlos Rodon, Reynaldo Lopez, Ivan Nova David Price Jersey , and Lucas Giolito are projected for Chicago’s rotation, and Santana joins a group competing for the fifth spot that also includes Manny Banuelos and Dylan Covey.Santana made just five appearances with Minnesota last season after he had surgery on his right middle finger two weeks before spring training. The Twins declined Santana’s $14 million option in October and paid him a $1 million buyout.Over the 2016 and 2017 seasons, Santana went 23-19 in 63 starts with a 3.32 ERA, seven complete games and four shutouts.The 36-year-old Santana broke into the majors in 2005 with the Los Angeles Angels. The two-time All-Star is 149-125 with a 4.06 ERA in 384 career games with the Angels, Royals Craig Kimbrel Jersey , Braves and Twins. Luis Severino has reached an agreement with the New York Yankees on a four-year, $40 million extension, the team announced.ESPN's Jeff Passanfirst reported the deal.Passan noted the deal includes a fifth-year club option.Here's a breakdown of the contract, per Passan:2019: $4 million plus a $2 million bonus2020: $10 million2021: $10.25 million2022: $11 million2023 (club option):$15 million with $2.75 million buyoutThe extension can max out at $52.25 million over five years.The deal buys out four arbitration years and potentially one free-agent season for Severino. The right-hander is now scheduled to enter free agency prior to his age-30 season, if the club option is picked up.An extension comes on the same day Severino and the Yankees were scheduled to have an arbitration hearing. The pitcher had requested $5.25 million for the upcoming season while the Yankees countered at $4.4 million.Severino made it known earlier this weekthat he hoped to avoid the hearing."Any player doesn't want to be in that situation Steven Wright Jersey ," Severino said on Wednesday,per theNew York Post'sGeorge A. King III. "I hear a lot that it is not fun."Ultimately, the two sides were able to come to terms on an agreement.The extension locks up New York's ace at a team-friendly price for the foreseeable future. Severino is coming off a season in which he went 19-8 with a 3.39 ERA and a 1.145 WHIP in 32 starts, striking out 220 hitters in 191.1 innings.At just 24 years old, Severino has two All-Star selections and two top-10 finishes in American League Cy Young award voting. And he has done so while logging just two full years as a starter in the big leagues.The biggest concern with Severino to this point has been his inability to pitch up to his regular-season numbers in the playoffs. Thus far http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-dustin-pedroia-jersey , he is just 1-2 with a 6.26 ERA in six career postseason starts.Severino's overall resume speaks for itself, though. Now, the Yankees can move forward and continue to build their rotation around the young star.
