BRIAN ROBERTS: The second baseman and the New York Yankees have completed their $2 million, one-year contract, a deal that allows the second baseman to earn $4.6 million if he becomes a regular starter.
The contract was agreed to Dec. 17 and finalized Tuesday, three days after a spot on the 40-man roster opened when Alex Rodriguez was suspended for the season for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract.
The 36-year-old Roberts, an All-Star in 2005 and 2007, is an option to replace Robinson Cano, who signed with Seattle. Roberts, who had spent his entire 13-year major league career with Baltimore, has not played a full season since 2009 because of injuries.
