Last night, Yankee veteran starter CC Sabathia agreed to a one-year deal to come back to the Yankees for one more season. Early, he said his 18th season in the majors would be his last.

The 38-year-old Sabathia, who will return for his 11th season with the Yankees, has turned into a reliable five-inning pitcher, ideal for the back end of a rotation NY is hoping to fill via free agency or trade.

Sabathia has been with the Yankees since 2009.

Given that GM Brian Cashman has not been bashful about the likelihood of trading Sonny Gray, this shouldn't be considred too much of a surprise.

The Cleveland Indians will listen to trade packages for both Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.

Said Cashman: "He's been a great Yankee and he has some time on the clock still".

In 10 years with the Yankees, Sabathia is 129-80 with a 3.74 ERA and 1.264 WHIP in 1810.2 innings pitched. Trust me. I think he's a heck of a pitcher.

"Well, we're going to try to sign him, " Cashman said Tuesday afternoon during his media availability.

Cashman has said starting pitching would be a Yankees priority this off-season, and last week, a team source told the Daily News the team would strongly pursue Patrick Corbin, a 29-year-old free agent righty who went 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA and 246 strikeouts in 200 innings for the Arizona Diamondbacks last season.

Cashman repeated he intends to trade pitcher Sonny Gray, just 15-16 since NY acquired him from Oakland in July 2017. He's the youngest of the three pitchers and has two more years of arbitration before he can become a free agent in 2021. NY went 100-62 and finished eight games behind the world champion Red Sox in the AL East.
