New York Signs Pitcher Carlos Rodón to 6-Year, $162 Million Deal

The Yankees add another one! Prized left-hander Carlos Rodón is heading to New York on a six-year, $162 million deal that gives the Bronx one of the best starting rotations in 2023. The 30-year-old ace joins Gerrit Cole in the rotation, and the retention of Aaron Judge makes New York a heavy American League favorite. Both Rodón ($162 million) and Judge ($360 million) have garnered more than $520 million of the Yankees’ $573 million spent in free agency — the most of any time this offseason. In 2022, Rodón pitched a career-high 178 innings with a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 237 Ks. He had a record of 14-8.
