CC Sabathia to sign $8M deal with Yankees

Cashman Yankees want to bring back Sabathia Happ CC Sabathia, Yankees reportedly agree on one-year, $8 million contract

A year ago it took until mid-December for Sabathia to decide whether he was going to continue to be a Yankee and he signed a one-year, $10 million deal.

Sabathia, who underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery October 12, had a physical on Wednesday that was administered by team physician Chris Ahmad.

After undergoing a physical Wednesday and heading to the West Coast for a fishing trip, the veteran left-hander's one-year deal for $8 million was official and he will be part of Aaron Boone's retooled 2019 rotation.

The deal is expected to pay Sabathia eight million dollars next season as Joel Sherman of the NY Post reports. He will do the same thing this year with a slightly lower salary.

In his time in the Bronx, the 38-year-old has a record of 129-80.

In 29 starts last season, Sabathia threw 153 innings of 3.65 ERA baseball. He remains a steady and reliable presence in the starting rotation.

CC Sabathia was a little indecisive last season. "We know exactly who they are in that clubhouse, who they are dealing with, our press and our fans, and obviously, most importantly, competing on the field of play".

At the moment, Sabathia will be penciled in next to Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka. The season marked his third straight with a sub-4.00 ERA after recording ERAs above 4.50 all three seasons from 2013-15.

Given that GM Brian Cashman has not been bashful about the likelihood of trading Sonny Gray, this shouldn't be considred too much of a surprise. Lefty Jordan Montgomery will also miss a significant chunk of the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery this past season. However, both Britton and Robertson are set to leave through free agency, leaving two holes in the 'pen.

The Yankees have several internal options for those spots. Then you get into Domingo German and prospects, such as touted lefty Justus Sheffield. A trade could be involved and there are certainly some free agents that fit as well.

"I'm interested in adding more than one pitcher", Cashman said, according to Ehalt.

Among the top pitchers available are Patrick Corbin, Dallas Keuchel, Nathan Eovaldi, and JA Happ.

Sabathia signed with the Yankees prior to the start of the 2009 season and helped lead the team to their last championship in 2009. There could also be a few frontline starting pitchers available via trade this winter.
