The Yankees acquired the All-Star southpaw from the Blue Jays in July.
The Yankees are close to re-signing free agent J.A. Happ, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
No agreement is officially in place but the two parties are close to what is reportedly a three-year deal, pending a physical.
The Yankees acquired the All-Star left hander from the Blue Jays just before the trade deadline in July. Toronto first acquired Happ from a 2012 mid-season trade with the Houston Astros. Happ became a free agent following the 2018 season.
The southpaw was selected for his first All-Star game this season in his 12-year career. Happ recorded a 2.69 ERA and 63 strikeouts through 63.2 innings pitched in New York.
