The Yankees and C.C. Sabathia have reached an agreement on a one year 10 million dollar deal per Ken Rosenthal on Twitter.
This contract comes to a shocker to some after the great season Sabathia put together in 2017 that he would accept a one year deal. This is a huge win for the Yankees as they have once again added a former cy young award winner and a pitcher who knows how to get it done in the Bronx. C.C. is more than just a pitcher, he is a leader in the clubhouse who had seemed to found himself after checking himself into an alcoholics program.
The Yankees now find themselves in a position of strength with other clubs discussing arms now as they have added back one of their best arms down the stretch in 2017. We will have more on this coming to you later this evening. Check back for updates
