Rizzo, Yankees agree to $40M, 2-year contract
Anthony Rizzo is staying with the New York Yankees, agreeing Tuesday to a $40 million, two-year contract.
Rizzo gets $17 million in each of the next two seasons, and the deal for the first baseman includes a $17 million team option for 2025 with a $6 million buyout. Rizzo had opted out of his previous contract with New York, giving up a $16 million salary for 2023.
Rizzo gets a limited no-trade provision, allowing him to list six teams annually he cannot be dealt to without approval.
Since joining the Yankees at the 2021 trade deadline, Rizzo had provided needed left-handed power for New York and has taken advantage of the right field short porch at Yankee Stadium.
Now 33, Rizzo hit .224 with 75 RBIs and had 32 home runs for the fourth time in his career. While the Yankees led the major leagues with 254 home runs, just 77 were by left-handed batters.
His agreement is the first major offseason move for the Yankees, who are attempting to re-sign star right fielder Aaron Judge.
