Dec. 4 4:38 PM PT5:38 PM MT6:38 PM CT7:38 PM ET19:38 ET0:38 GMT8:38 5:38 PM MST7:38 PM EST8:08 PM VEN4:38 UAE (+1)6:38 PM CT-Holliday and the New York Yankees have agreed to a $13 million, one-year contract.
Analysis: Holliday, who turns 37 next month, fits into the Yankees strategy of signing veterans to short-term deals while pivoting toward a youth movement. The seven-time All-Star, who became a free agent when St. Louis declined his $17 million option, could step into a DH role for New York.

Analysis: The 36-year-old certainly will not finish among the top 10 when voting is announced Nov. 17, so the move makes him a free agent one week earlier. He hit .246 with 20 homers and 62 RBIs in 110 games, missing substantial time after his left thumb was broken when he was hit by a pitch on Aug. 11.
