The deal is pending a physical, and will contain an opt-out after four years. The 24-year-old held a showcase for all 30 teams in September, and proceeded to hold private workouts with at least 11 clubs, one of which was Arizona. Tomas is known for his power potential, and is expected to be a middle-of-the-order hitter. He'll likely play corner outfield with the club.
He was in the minors for most of last season, hitting .332 with 25 homers for the Angels Triple-A affiliate.
Jackson hit .278 with 34 RBI at Triple-A Memphis, playing 122 games at shortstop and third base in 2013.
The Yankees and
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Rollins is "one of the best shortstops in baseball still" but wouldn't confirm Yankees interest in the veteran. Amaro also said Rollins is "somebody we want on our club and would be very hard to replace."
Rollins is due $11 million this season and his contract is up at the end of 2015. Rollins hit .243 with 55 RBI and stole 28 bases in 2014.
Boyer appeared in 32 games last season for the Padres and posted a 3.57 ERA.
Rodriguez hit .211 with 12 home runs last season.
Both Molina and Figueroa were designated for assignment Thursday. Molina, 39, hit .178 over 225 at-bats last year, while Figueroa hit .233 in 43 at-bats.
Frieri, who had a career-high 37 saves in 2013, had 11 last season with a 7.34 ERA.
"The knee, I have no complaints," Sabathia told YES Network. "I’m able to do all of my workouts. … I’m changing a few things. Not as much pounding and running. I’m in the pool a lot, on different machines to get cardio, (on the) bike. Just adding a few different things to get some cardio in."
Despite coming off surgery and being limited to eight starts (46 innings) in 2014, Sabathia feels he can get back to being a 30-start, 200-inning pitcher in 2015.
"Yeah, for sure," he said. "I feel like I can. If you asked me that a couple of months ago, I would have said, ‘I don’t know,’ but the way I’m feeling now and being able to work out, definitely."
Morales, who split time between the Twins and Mariners last season, hit .218 with 42 RBI.
