    Now, what is next? lol.

    Is that right? If Tanaka opted out after 2017 then Yankees would get about 560k extra for 2018 budget.

    7y/155m = 22.14 AAV without buyout option due to no mention of it.

    4y/88m = 22m AAV.

      The Yankees aren't going to get another starter from the market. Fifth spot will probably be Pineda or Phelps.
