The agreement announced Wednesday calls for a $2 million signing bonus payable within 30 days of the deal's approval by the commissioner's office, a $12 million salary this year and $21 million in each of the next three seasons.

Giancarlo Stanton may be dropped in Yankees batting order .
Despite Stanton's early struggles, Boone and the Yankees still have confidence the slugger will get where he needs to be. “I see a guy who’s really focused. Obviously he’s frustrated. You want to go out there and perform, especially when you’re MVP, and obviously he expects a lot from himself," Boone said."I’m really confident that once he gets rolling, it’ll be a juggernaut.
