According to John Heyman of CBS Sports, Jacoby Ellsbury may be on the verge of joining the Yankees with a sizable seven-year contract.

The free agent center fielder, who has spent the first seven years of his career with the Red Sox, could get a deal that exceeds the one Carl Crawford got from the Red Sox in 2011, which was seven years at $142 million.

The report quoted “someone familiar with the talks” as saying, “It could happen.”

Ellsbury is a career .297 hitter and led the American League in stolen bases with 52 last season.
