The New York Yankees and free-agent closer Aroldis Chapman agreed to a five-year, $86 million contract on Wednesday night.

Only one other reliever since 1990 has received a five-year contract: B.J. Ryan with the Toronto Blue Jays. Ryan made it through only 3 1/2 years of his deal before he was released.
