Report: Luis Severino, Yankees talking contract extension

Report: Luis Severino, Yankees talking contract extension The Philadelphia Phillies were able to take care of starting pitcher Aaron Nola before the two sides ended up in an arbitration hearing, and it sounds like the New York Yankees are hoping to do the same with Luis Severino. Severino has an arbitration hearing set for later this month, but Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that he has had ongoing discussions with the Yankees about a contract extension. Yankees and Luis Severino have had extension talks, as well, but no word they are close yet. Sevy’s scheduled arb hearing has yet to be heard.

NOTES: OF Aaron Hicks agreed to a million, one- year contract that avoided arbitration and more than doubled his salary from ,825,000. The 29- year -old switch-hitter took over as the Yankees primary center fielder and set career highs with 137 games, 27 homers and 79 RBIs.

NEW YORK (AP) A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that outfielder Aaron Hicks and the New York Yankees have agreed to a $70 million, seven-year contract that adds $64 million in guaranteed money over six seasons.

Hicks' agreement includes a club option for 2026 that could make it worth $81.5 million over seven seasons, the person said Monday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been announced.

Hicks agreed on Jan. 11 to a $6 million, one-year contract and would have been eligible for free agency after the season.

His new, superseding deal calls for the 29-year-old to receive a $2 million signing bonus and keeps the $6 million salary this year. He gets $10.5 million annually from 2020-23 and $9.5 million in each of the following two seasons. The Yankees have a $12.5 million option for 2026 with a $1 million buyout.

Hicks would get a $1 million assignment bonus the first time he is traded. He receives a hotel suite on road trips.

New York has not given many multiyear contracts to players under its control in recent years, but the Yankees gave right-hander Luis Severino a $40 million, four-year deal on Feb. 15.

Shortstop Didi Gregorius and reliever Dellin Betances remain eligible for free agency after this season.
