The New York Yankees are on the verge of re-signing a veteran bullpen piece to fill the void left by David Robertson’s departure to the Philadelphia Phillies.

According to reports, the team has agreed to a three-year, $39 million contract extension with All-Star left hander Zach Britton. The deal includes a fourth-year club option worth $14 million in 2020. If the team chooses not to exercise it, Britton will have the ability to opt-out and become an unrestricted free agent.

The 31-year old posted a 1-0 record, 2.88 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and converted three of five save opportunities in 25.0 innings after being acquired by the Yankees near last season’s trade deadline on July 24.
