NEW YORK (AP) - Pitcher Javier Vazquez and the Florida Marlins reached a preliminary agreement on a $7 million, one-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

The deal is subject to Vazquez passing a physical, the person said Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made.

The 34-year-old right-hander was 10-10 with a 5.32 ERA this season in his return to the New York Yankees, who acquired him from Atlanta. He was dropped from the rotation during the second half of the season and didn’t appear in the playoffs.

He is 152-149 with a 4.26 ERA in 13 major league seasons with Montreal, the Yankees, Arizona, the Chicago White Sox and Atlanta.

Because the Yankees offered salary arbitration, New York will receive draft-pick compensation next June.
