Yankees want to retain CC Sabathia
CC Sabathia intends to pitch another season, and the New York Yankees hope it’s with them.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman admitted Monday that the Yankees would like to bring Sabathia back, and the feeling is believed to be mutual despite him hitting free agency.
Cashman said he thinks Sabathia would like to stay in New York and the Yankees would like to have him back, but he’s a free agent which “complicates things” to some extent.

Sabathia posted a 3.65 ERA for the Yankees in 29 starts last season, so he can still get it done, even if he’s not an ace anymore. The Yankees may well go for a big-name starter this winter, but that doesn’t preclude a potential Sabathia return.
