CC Sabathia finalizes Yankees deal, says 2019 his last season

CC Sabathia finalizes Yankees deal, says 2019 his last season

Still, it feels pretty safe to assume Sabathia returns to the Yankees next year on this deal. He announced it would be his past year playing baseball in a video posted on his Twitter page. The swiftness of this negotiation was a clear sign that an 11th year in The Bronx was high on his list.

Needless to say, Cashman and Co. recognize that starting pitching is a major need fresh off a 100-win season that saw NY put up historic numbers on offense. "This is a young team that's got a lot of talent and I'd love to be part of seeing this thing". "That is understandable after the last three years after he reinvented himself". Many expected veteran lefty CC Sabathia to remain with the Yankees, and that is the case.

The Yankees will enter the 2019 season with Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka as staples from last season's rotation and could also put top pitching prospect Justus Sheffield in the mix, but Cashman said he hopes the team will re-sign Sabathia, who has been with the Yankees since 2009.

It was reported earlier in the week that the Yankees were interested in trading for former Cy Young victor Corey Kluber. And if the Indians are serious about dealing Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco the Yankees will listen. The agreement will become official after Sabathia takes a physical on Wednesday. Sabathia pitches with a brace on the knee and needs periodic injections there during the season.

Adding to the twist is the fact that the baby's father could either be Dylan or Haley's ex Arvin ( Chris Geere ). Fans of the show might have already expected that she was expecting, especially after Hyland posted this hint.

"I'd love to have him come back", Cashman said, according to the Bergen Record's Matt Ehalt.

In 18 big-league seasons Sabathia is 246-153 with a 3.70 ERA and 2,986 strikeouts in 538 career starts. He is second among active pitchers in wins and starts to Bartolo Colon (247-188 in 565 games, including 552 starts).

He is 29-22 with a 3.67 ERA in 80 starts and three relief appearances over four seasons and was an AL All-Star in 2017.

Midseason acquisitions like J.A. Happ, who went 7-0 as a Yankee last season and 17-6 with a 3.65 ERA overall, and Lance Lynn, are also free agents, as are Nathan Eovaldi and Charlie Morton, among others.
