After being sliced from Seattle’s roster, Richie Sexson has found a new Major League home in the Bronx.
ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the Yankees have tentatively agreed to sign the ex-Mariner, just a week after Richie was released from the M’s. Best of all, the Yanks will only have to pay $390,000 of Sexson’s $14 million salary.
The Bronx Bombers are signing Sexson to help solve the team’s problems against opposing pitching. Well, Richie certainly knows how to deal with pitchers.
