Tommy Kahnle is officially an ex-Yankee.
The right-hander signed a two-year deal with the Dodgers, a source confirmed Wednesday.
Kahnle underwent Tommy John surgery in August and will likely miss all of next season, so the Dodgers signed him with 2022 in mind.
The 31-year-old Kahnle was originally a fifth-round pick by the Yankees in 2010 and went to the Rockies in the 2013 Rule 5 draft.
He spent two seasons with the Rockies and parts of two more with the White Sox before he was traded to the Yankees in 2017 in the deal that also brought David Robertson back to The Bronx and also included Todd Frazier.
Kahnle had a standout season in 2019, appearing in 72 games with a WHIP of 1.06, but he pitched in just one game last year before undergoing elbow surgery.
He became a free agent following the season after declining a minor league assignment.
The Yankees could be in the hunt for more relief pitchers to go along with Aroldis Chapman, Zack Britton, Adam Ottavino and Chad Green. Jonathan Holder is also gone, having signed with the Cubs, while Jonathan Loaisiga, Ben Heller, Luis Cessa, Adam Warren and Nestor Cortes Jr. could also have roles.
Lefty Brad Hand and right-hander Archie Bradley are among those available, but the Yankees have yet to sign a player to a major league deal this offseason while they wait out DJ LeMahieu.
