New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Yankees have reportedly landed Japanese hurler Masahiro Tanaka.

Multiple sources reported on Wednesday morning that the deal is worth $155 million over seven years with an opt-out clause after the fourth year.

The 25-year-old right-hander finished an astonishing 24-0 with a 1.27 earned run average and 183 strikeouts against 32 walks in 212 innings over 28 games (27 starts) for Rakuten of Japan's Pacific League.

In seven professional seasons, all with the Golden Eagles, Tanaka has posted a 99-35 mark and 2.30 ERA in 175 games -- all but three as a starter -- while fanning 1,238 batters in 1,315 innings.
