David Robertson

Robertson was one of the best free agent relief pitchers available this offseason, and CBS Sports ranked him No. 22 on our Free Agent Tracker.

All-Star reliever David Robertson has agreed to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to multiple reports.

Where do the Yankees turn now for bullpen help?

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reported Robertson's contract is a two-year deal that'll guarantee him at least $23 million. They have a great fan base, a attractive ballpark and a special focus on charity.

The righty was part of the Yankees bullpen when they took out the Phillies in six games in the 2009 World Series. He also received both AL Cy Young and Most Valuable Player votes that season. He returned to NY in the July 2017 trade that also sent third baseman Todd Frazier and pitcher Tommy Kahnle to the Yankees in exchange for reliever Tyler Clippard, outfield prospect Blake Rutherford and two other minor leaguers.

The soon-to-be 31-year-old Kimbrel, who posted a 2.74 ERA with 42 saves in 47 opportunities in 2018, spent his first five career seasons with the Braves from 2010 to 2014.
