Sabathia agrees to $8M deal to stay with Yankees

10 November 2018

"So he put himself in a good position as a free agent".

CC Sabathia is headed back to the Yankees. The Yankees are expected to look for more pitching options in the offseason. I definitely can still get guys out. I need to, I think, add multiple.

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.

"I love it here obviously", Sabathia said. "I think the hunger and the effort, the passion's there, despite the terrible outcome that took place in the World Series this year".

But the two sides apparently came to terms some time Tuesday, although neither side would officially confirm the deal on the record. "We have (Luis Severino) and (Masahiro) Tanaka locked in". Naysayers might say what a waste of money given Sabathia's recent knee surgery and decline over the years, yet those who value leadership know that this was a great deal for the Yankees to bring back CC to the helm of the dugout along with incumbent outfielder Brett Gardner.

Vietnam will also become F1's fourth street race joining Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan with its unique 22-turn, 5.565 km track. Silverstone previous year triggered a contract clause that will see their deal end early, which will expire in 2019.

An ejection in his final start of the regular season cost Sabathia a $500,000 bonus that he would have earned for reaching 155 innings pitched.

The Yankees are also interested in signing J.A. Happ, who went 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts for them after being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays at last season's trade deadline. Both are reported to be on the block as the Indians look to shed salary.

The six-time All-Star has spent the last 10 seasons with the Yankees.

"He finished batting in the middle of our lineup in the post-season, so I don't see why three weeks since that time would change our evaluation process", Cashman said.
