It looks like the Yankees might have both Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera under contract before they hit next week’s Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
With the thaw in the Jeter negotiations setting in, the Yankees continue to push forward to re-sign the two legacy players.
Jeter’s requests have dropped and the Yankees have pledged to increase their offer. The end result should be a meeting in the middle: a three-year deal worth between $15 to $17 million per year, Ken Rosenthal reports
The Yankees are also said to be crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s on what will be a two-year, $30 million deal for Rivera. That deal had been expected to be inked as early as Friday, but everything appears to be on track.
