Robertson opted for free agency at the end of the season.
According to Mark Feisand, the Phillies have signed former New York Yankees reliever David Robertson to a two-year, $23 million contract. There, he first established himself as one of baseball's marquee relievers, making four All-Star teams and leading the National League in saves for four consecutive seasons. He'll earn $10M in 2019, $11M in 2020, with a $12M club option ($2M buyout) for 2021.
"Philly really checked off all the boxes for me", Robertson told MLB.com.
Robertson appeared in 69 games for the New York Yankees this past season, going 8-3 with five saves, a 3.23 ERA, 2.97 FIP, 1.03 WHIP and 91 strikeouts against 26 walks over 69.2 innings pitched.
"They have a great fan base, a attractive ballpark and a special focus on charity", Robertson told MLB.com.More news: DeAndre Hopkins to donate playoff check to family of slain girl
