CC Sabathia takes a paycut of $15 million dollars to play another year in the pinstripes.
Yankee’s and Sabathia agreed to a $10 million, one-year contract Tuesday pending a physical.

The 37-year-old left-handed pitcher played well coming back from a 2016 season riddled with injuries and poor pitching.
Last season Sabathia pitched in 27 starts posting a 14-5 record with a 3.69 ERA, that was his best since 2012, along with 120 strikeouts.
A more impressive stat was his stopper ability, in his 10 starts following a Yankee’s loss he was 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA , which was a league best.
He didn’t stop there, in the post season he started four games, went 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA and 19 strikeouts(19 innings pitched)

Now, Sabathia’s age and need for periodic injections on his right knee will still be a looming subject, so we might see the six-time All-Star limited in a pitching rotation that includes Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray and Jordan Montgomery.

 

 

New York’s projected luxury tax payroll for 2018 is close to $178 million.
