Masahiro Tanaka announced he will not exercise the opt-out clause in his contract and will remain with the Yankees through the 2020 season.
He will earn $67 million over the next three seasons. The 29-year-old starting pitcher went 13-12 with a 4.74 ERA and 194 strikeouts in 178 1/3 innings spread across 30 starts this year. Despite the mediocre ERA many observers expected him to opt out and snare an even larger payday in free agency. His brilliant performance in the playoffs sparked much of that conjecture. He went 2-1 with a 0.90 ERA in his three postseason starts and was a big reason why the Yankees nearly reached the World Series. Tanaka called it a "simple decision" to stay put as he enjoys playing in New York and wants to win a championship there. He has 52 wins and 28 losses to go with a 3.56 ERA in 105 starts during his four years in the major leagues -- all with the Yankees. Nov 3 - 7:42 PM
