NEW YORK (AP) — ents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado Anibal Sanchez Jersey , the New York Yankees are boosting their bullpen.Reliever Adam Ottavino and the Yankees agreed to a $27 million, three-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal is subject to a successful physical.Ottavino is a 33-year-old New Yorker who went to Berkeley Carroll High School in Brooklyn and Northeastern University. He wore No. 0 with Colorado, a number not likely to be assigned by the tradition-bound Yankees.He had a career-high 112 strikeouts in 77 2/3 innings last year for the Colorado Rockies, going 6-4 with a 2.43 ERA in 75 relief appearances. The right-hander reduced his fastball percentage, relying primarily on sliders and sinkers. He walked 36.Taken 30th overall by St. Louis in the 2006 amateur draft, Ottavino made his big league debut with the Cardinals in 2010 and was claimed by Colorado off waivers in April 2012. He had Tommy John surgery in May 2016 and returned to the Rockies for the start of the 2017 season.Ottavino will join right-hander Dellin Betances and left-hander Zach Britton as the primary setup men for closer Aroldis Chapman, part of a bullpen that includes right-handers Chad Green, Jonathan Holder and Tommy Kahnle. He is the second free agent to leave the Rockies for the Yankees this offseason, following infielder DJ LeMahieu. Former Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki also signed with New York.Ottavino’s deal increases the Yankees’ projected luxury tax payroll to $222 million http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-kepler-jersey , well over the $206 million threshold for the 20 percent tax. New York would pay an additional 12 percent surtax on the portion above $226 million.New York is among only three teams currently projected to pay tax this year, along with the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs. The Yankees’ offseason moves included acquiring left-hander James Paxton from the Seattle Mariners, adding LeMahieu for $24 million over two years and re-signing Britton ($39 million for three years), left-hander J.A. Happ ($34 million for two years), left-hander CC Sabathia ($8 million for one year) and outfielder Brett Gardner ($7.5 million for one year). ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rougned Odor and the Texas Rangers quickly got after yet another new Angels pitcher.Odor’s two-run single capped a five-run outburst in the second inning off recently acquired Odrisamer Despaigne, the 14th starting pitcher used by Los Angeles this season, and the Rangers went on to a 6-4 win on Friday night.“Hopefully we keep doing what we’re doing right now,” said Nomar Mazara, whose leadoff single started the second.“You’ve got to credit the hitters in the lineup http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-kepler-jersey , the job that they’re doing,” manager Jeff Banister said. “We’re constantly talking the message of grinding at-bats out, be able to keep the ball in the middle of the field, the at-bats to draw walks, to create run-scoring opportunities, to hit behind runners, and drive the baseball in the gap.”Joey Gallo’s two-run double into the right-field corner put the Rangers up 2-1 before he scored on a groundout by Isiah Kiner-Falefa. Odor’s two-run single was the fourth consecutive Rangers hit, and he added a sac fly in the seventh inning.Drew Hutchison (2-2) struck out six and allowed two runs over five innings in his third start for the Rangers.“Anytime you give up a run and then come back and score five … then I was able to kind of get in a rhythm after that and have a few good innings,” Hutchison said.Jose Leclerc struck out the side in the ninth for his fourth save.“He’s nasty. It’s fun to watch him when I’m playing the outfield,” Mazara said. “His pitches move a lot.” Andrelton Simmons hit a two-run homer Eddie Rosario Jersey , his eighth, that got the Angels within 5-4 in the sixth.Despaigne (2-1), acquired Tuesday from the Miami Marlins in exchange for cash considerations, allowed five runs in four innings while becoming the 34th pitcher used by Los Angeles, which had never before used more than 31 in a season. Two relievers made their big-league debuts in the series opener for the Angels, when Texas overcame a five-run deficit even before its first at-bat to win.“His stuff looked good. He obviously had a tough second inning,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “It looks like he lost his release point in the second. His ball-strike ratio was getting a little out of whack and he fought hard to get out of that inning with only five, but the damage was done at that point.”SHORT HOPSCarlos Tocci had his first career three-hit game and scored twice for Texas. …. The Angels have used 57 different players overall, also a team record.THE PLAYERS NAMED LATERThe Rangers acquired a pair of 19-year-old prospects, the players to be named later to complete trades they made last month with Pittsburgh and Arizona. Texas got 3B Sherten Apostel from the Pirates Robbie Grossman Jersey , who acquired right-hander Keone Kela in a July 30 deal. Left-hander Josh Javier is part of the July 31 trade that sent lefty reliever Jake Diekman to the Diamondbacks.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: RHP Matt Shoemaker, who made only one start before going on the DL with a right forearm strain the first week of the season, is working out in Arizona. Scioscia said “Shoemaker is making some great strides, and that’s great to see.” The Angels play in Arizona next week.Rangers: CF Delino DeShields was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fracture on the tip of his right middle finger. He got hurt in the series opener Thursday night when he got hit by a pitch on an attempted bunt. … 3B Adrian Beltre missed his third consecutive game since coming out Monday night after aggravating his trouble left hamstring that has already landed him on the DL twice this season.UP NEXTAngels lefty Andrew Heaney has gone nearly three years since winning a start on the road. His streak of 16 consecutive winless road starts has already tied Rudy May (1965-69) for the longest such streak in team history. Heaney is 0-2 with a 10.57 ERA in two career starts at Texas. He is 0-5 in 11 road starts this year, and 7-2 in 11 starts at Angel Stadium. Martin Perez (2-5) will start for the Rangers.
