NEW YORK (AP) -- A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that pitcher Javier Vazquez and the Florida Marlins have reached a preliminary agreement on a $7 million, one-year contract.
The deal is subject to Vazquez passing a physical, the person said Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made.
The 34-year-old right-hander was 10-10 with a 5.32 ERA this season in his return to the New York Yankees, who acquired him from Atlanta. He was dropped from the rotation during the second half of the season and didn't appear in the playoffs.
