It’s not Aaron Judge news, but the Yankees appear to have received their first big win of the offseason.

According to multiple reports, Anthony Rizzo will back in pinstripes on a multi-year contract. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was the first to report the agreement. Rizzo had just rejected the Yankees’ qualifying offer before coming to a new deal.

USA TODAY Sports’ Bob Nightengale reports Rizzo’s contract is a guaranteed two-year, $40 million deal with $17 million for each of 2023 and 2024 and a $6 million buyout of a $17 million club option for 2025.

In addition to being one of the top first basemen in the league defensively, the 33-year-old Rizzo also provided the Yankees with crucial power from the left side of the plate. Hitting next to Judge for most of the season, Rizzo hit 32 homers last season with a .338 on-base percentage.

Over nine postseason games, Rizzo hit two home runs, drove in eight runs and walked five times.
