The Yankees are bringing back CC Sabathia for one more year. The deal is a one year $8 million contract. Shortly after, Sabathia took to twitter and announced that 2019 will be the last season of his career. Sabathia has been a pretty important member of the team since he was signed in 2009. When he initially signed he was an ace, now he has reinvented himself as a reliable back-end of the rotation pitcher. More importantly he is beloved by his teammates and sticks up for them.
One last hoorah for Sabathia and the Yankees. It's a solid signing for both sides and Sabathia hopes to ride off into the sunset as a champion.
