CC Sabathia, Yankees Agree On 1-Year Contract


CC Sabathia was a little indecisive last season.

Sabathia took a cut in salary from $25 million in 2017 to $10 million this year and went 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA in 29 starts - missing a $500,000 bonus by two innings when he was ejected in his last regular-season start for hitting Tampa Bay's Jesus Sucre after Rays pitcher Andrew Kittredge threw up-and-in to Austin Romine.

The 38-year-old Sabathia, who will return for his 11th season with the Yankees, has turned into a reliable five-inning pitcher, flawless for the back end of a rotation NY is hoping to fill via free agency or trade.

I'd expect Yankees general manager Brian Cashman to further address the rotation this offseason, at the very least to add depth.

The Cleveland Indians will listen to trade packages for both Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. He's never pitched more than 160.1 innings since making his Major League Baseball debut in 2013. Francred's Jon Heyman said the Yankees are interested in all three pitchers.

"I would think that there'll be a lot of interest in him", Cashman said. Midyear, he joked to reporters that he wanted to return to the field - and the Yankees - so he could get a free trip to London during the team's scheduled series against the Red Sox in June 2019. "We have (Luis Severino) and (Masahiro) Tanaka locked in".

Cashman sidestepped questions about infielder Manny Machado, one of the top two offensive free agents along with Bryce Harper.

Cashman repeated he intends to trade pitcher Sonny Gray, just 15-16 since NY acquired him from Oakland in July 2017.

"I'll play anywhere, " he said before the Yankees were eliminated by the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS "I still want to pitch". NY went 100-62 and finished eight games behind the world champion Red Sox in the AL East.
