The 36-year-old ended his Cardinals' tenure with a big game, hitting a home run and a key RBI single in a St. Louis victory. He had been with the Cards since coming over from Oakland in a trade during the 2010 season. At the time, his job was to protect Albert Pujols. As years went on, his duties turned into the key producer for their lineup.
Holliday signed a seven-year, $120 million extension in 2011, and hit .288, with an .863 OPS, and 143 home runs during that deal.
The former Colorado Rockies star outfielder saw more time at first base this past season after struggling defensively. Being back in the American League, which he spent a short time in with Oakland, gives him the option to DH. Either way, he'll fit right in with home run-friendly Yankee Stadium, as he has 295 career long balls.
