  • Cashman Yankees want to bring back Sabathia Happ

The New York Yankees and CC Sabathia agreed on a one-year, $8 million contract, pending a physical, a source with knowledge of the deal told Yahoo Sports.

The Yankees now have three surefire rotation members heading into next season: Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and Sabathia. But he has been hampered over the past few seasons by a degenerative condition in his right knee that requires periodic maintenance throughout the season, and he faded badly in the last month of the 2018 season, pitching to a 5.40 ERA in September. His new deal boosts his pay from NY to $229 million.

He took a cut in salary from $25 million in 2017 to $10 million in '18.

In 10 years with the Yankees, Sabathia is 129-80 with a 3.74 ERA and 1.264 WHIP in 1810.2 innings pitched. While the team could enter the 2019 Major League Baseball season with one of the two big bats on their roster, general manager Brian Cashman has made it clear that the organization's primary goal is to improve the starting rotation.

"Well, we're going to try to sign him, " Cashman said.

Cashman said Luke Voit will head to spring training as the starter at first base, and it will be up to Greg Bird to earn the job back.


"He's been a great Yankee and he has some time on the clock still".

Both can be optioned to the minors next year.

Sabathia has been with the Yankees since 2009.

Cashman repeated he intends to trade pitcher Sonny Gray, just 15-16 since NY acquired him from Oakland in July 2017. Trust me. I think he's a heck of a pitcher.

"The game's evolved to the point where people can see what the real numbers are behind the numbers and the recognition that whoever winds up acquiring Sonny Gray is going to acquire someone that's going to be the player, the pitcher he was more with Oakland", Cashman said.
