CC Sabathia agrees to $8 million deal to remain with Yankees

CC Sabathia

CC Sabathia is returning to the New York Yankees for the 2019 season on a one-year deal.

The New York Post’s Joel Sherman reports that Sabathia is getting an $8 million deal, pending a physical. Sherman says Sabathia wanted to get the deal done quickly.

The 38-year-old went 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA last season. That was almost a duplication of his 2017 season in which he went 14-5 with a 3.69 ERA.

Sabathia has learned how to become effective even with his decline in average fastball velocity. He has primarily become a slider/cutter pitcher now, according to Fangraphs.
