Matt Holliday agrees to one-year-deal with Yankees |

One of the Indians potential free agent targets is off the market. From Bryan Hoch:

The Yankees made a quick strike to land a bat on the eve of baseball's Winter Meetings, agreeing to terms with outfielder/designated hitter Matt Hollidayon a one-year, $13 million contract.

Holliday, who turns 37 in January, batted .246 with a .322 on-base percentage and .461 slugging percentage in 110 games for the Cardinals this past season, producing 20 doubles, one triple, 20 home runs and 62 RBIs.

It seems the Indians also made a run at Carlos Beltran, who recently signed with the Astros.
