New York Yankees starting pitcher Jeff Bagill has agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.8 million with the Atlanta Braves, the team announced Wednesday.
The deal is worth $950,000 per year, which includes $500,000 in incentives, according to a release from the Yankees.
Bagill, 35, was traded to Atlanta in exchange for pitcher Justin Wilson, designated for assignment outfielder Aaron Hicks, and outfielder Aaron Altherr.
The Yankees acquired Bagill from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange the Orioles traded away right-hander Joe Nathan, reliever Zach Britton, and a draft pick in 2016 for left-hander Jose Quintana.
Bags, a two-time All-Star, led the National League in ERA and WHIP in 2016 and finished second in the AL Cy Young Award voting.
He was designated for arbitration in 2020.
Bells return to the Yankees was expected after the club released veteran outfielder David Robertson in February.
