The Yankees have agreed to terms with Joe Girardi on a deal that will keep the manager in New York for three years and pay him at least $9MM. Mark Feinsand and Bill Madden of the New York Daily News, who first reported that the sides had agreed, say the Yankees are now finalizing details with Girardi.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post, who first reported the sides were closing in on a deal, reports (on Twitter) that the deal includes $450-500K in ALCS and World Series bonuses. Jon Heyman of SI.com reported Tuesday that the Yankees were set to start talks with Girardi on a three-year deal worth about $3MM per season.
Girardi, 46, led the Yankees to the ALCS this year, where they lost to the Rangers. In three seasons under Girardi, the Yankees have won one World Series title and posted a 287-199 regular season record.
