The Philadelphia Phillies have reportedly signed free-agent relief pitcher David Robertson to a two-year, $23 million deal.

The contract includes a club option for a third season, and Robertson has already passed a physical exam, Mark Feinsand of first reported Thursday.

The 33-year-old right-hander played for the New York Yankees in 2018, compiling an 8-3 record with five saves, a 3.23 ERA and 91 strikeouts in 69 2/3 innings pitched.

Robertson won a World Series with the Yankees in 2009 and made the American League All-Star team in 2011.

In 11 seasons with the Yankees (2008-14, 2017-18) and the Chicago White Sox (2015-17), Robertson is 53-32 with 137 saves, a 2.88 ERA and 874 strikeouts in 657 innings. He has totaled at least 60 innings and 60 bullpen appearances in each of the past nine seasons.
