6. Carlos Rodón: Six Years, $162.5 Million
Welcome to New York, Carlos Rodón! The bulldog left-hander just parlayed back-to-back years of his life into a dream gig with the Yankees, and came down from his highest asking price to get it done.
Rodón's Yankees story has yet to be written, but it seems like he has the perfect combination of stuff and mentality to slot in directly behind Gerrit Cole and intimidate teams into realizing there aren't any breaks coming in a short series.
Last season, Rodón struck out 237 men in 178 innings. More of that.
