The New York Yankees have agreed to terms with veteran relief pitcher Darren O’Day on a one-year deal, multiple outlets reported Wednesday.
The deal, pending a physical, could become a two-year deal via player and team options, per the reports.
The 38-year-old O’Day spent the past two seasons in Atlanta after a seven-year stint in Baltimore. The submarine-style righty also pitched for the Texas Rangers (2009-11), New York Mets (2009) and Los Angeles Angels, where he started his career in 2008.
O’Day went 4-0 with a 1.10 ERA in 19 games last season with the Braves, striking out 22 batters in 16 1/3 innings. He made five postseason appearances.
For his career, O’Day is 40-19 with a 2.51 ERA with 600 strikeouts in 576 2/3 innings. He earned his lone All-Star appearance in 2015 with the Orioles, going 6-2 with a 1.52 ERA in 68 games with six saves.
