Per Bob Nightengale of USA Today,  former New York Yankees closer David Robertson has reportedly agreed to a four-year deal with the Chicago White Sox worth in excess of $40 million.

 

Per Jon Heyman of CBS Sports the total value of the contract is worth $46 million

 

Robertson spent his 2014 campaign with the New York Yankees where he owned a 4-5 record in 63 relief appearances with a 3.08 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. Many believed the 29-year old Birmingham, Alabama native would re-sign with the Yankees to fill their vacant closer role, despite the fact they recently inked southpaw Andrew Miller to a 4-year/$36 million contract.

In seven major league seasons,Robertson has a career record of 25-19 with a 2.81 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, and all 402 of his career appearances have come out of the bullpen.
