Free-agent pitcher Javier Vazquez has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Florida Marlins, multiple outlets are reporting Sunday.Because Vazquez was a Type-B free agent, and was offered and decline arbitration, so the Yankees will receive a draft-pick.
The 34-year-old right-hander had been on the Marlins' shopping list since the trade of Dan Uggla freed up money for a veteran starting pitcher.
In fact, there was enough interest, sources told ESPN.com, that Vazquez turned down two multiyear offers -- one of which was believed by other clubs to be potentially worth $20 million over the two years.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though it's unlikely it would approach $10 million a year. However, Vazquez has portrayed himself this winter as being more concerned with finding the right fit than the most dollars.
Good luck in Florida, you gutless bitch.
... I kid, I kid.
