The New York Yankees are a billion dollar corporation. This very popular team plays their games in the Bronx, which is one of the boroughs of New York City.
Their big off-season signing wants to live in the big city. As a result, the team had to work with a real estate agent to make this happen.
Real estate broker Andrew Azoulay has reportedly been paid $17,000 for finding Masahiro Tanaka an apartment in the City, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

We do not know the price of Tanaka’s apartment. However, it has to be a hefty price tag with the broker receiving a $17,000 check from the Yankees.
Tanaka is 10-1 this season in his first Major League Baseball season. Before joining the Yankees, he was a star in Japan.
He signed a seven-year, $155 million deal with the Yankees in January. Despite the seven-year deal, he has a clause in his contract, where he can opt-out of his contract after the fourth season.
Tanaka also has a full no-trade clause in his deal. This means that as long as Tanaka plays well for the Yankees, he cannot be traded.
