Report: Corey Kluber finalizing deal with Yankees originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

You can cross Corey Kluber off your Boston Red Sox wish list.

The two-time Cy Young award winner reportedly is finalizing a deal with the New York Yankees, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan. Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports the contract is worth north of $10 million.

Report: Red Sox interested in veteran utility man

Kluber, 34, only pitched one inning with the Texas Rangers in 2020 before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. The three-time All-Star threw a bullpen session in front of 25 teams on Wednesday, including the Red Sox, and impressed the scouts in attendance.

With Kluber headed to their arch-rival, the Red Sox still desperately need to add starting pitching this offseason. They've been linked to several free agents, including former Tampa Bay Rays and Minnesota Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi.
