CC Sabathia is staying in New York.
The free agent starter reportedly agreed to return to the Yankees on a one-year deal worth $10 million.
The 37-year-old still got it done for the Yankees a year ago, posting a 3.69 ERA in 27 starts. He’s obviously not the pitcher he once was, but he still provides valuable innings and leadership for an otherwise young, contending squad.
While there was interest from elsewhere, Sabathia wanted to stay with New York all along. Their offseason moves likely solidified that, and this should suit everyone.
