The Yankees got the man they wanted, and made life tougher for the Rays and the rest of the AL East, re-signing fireballing closer Aroldis Chapman.

The deal, reported by multiple outlets, is worth $86-million over five years, with no-trade protection in the first three.

The Yankees traded Chapman in July for a package of top prospects from the Cubs, who he helped to the World Series title.
