Former-Chicago Cubs first baseman and World Series champion Anthony Rizzo is re-signing with the New York Yankees according to a new report from Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.
The contract is a two-year, $40 million deal with a club option for 2025 worth $17 million.
Rizzo had been strongly linked to the Cubs over the past several weeks, and he once called Wrigley Field home for nine and a half seasons. With a gaping hole at first base for the Cubs, a happy marriage felt all too likely.
