CC Sabathia Will Retire After 2019 Season

CC Sabathia | Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports Yankees reportedly looking to add two starting pitchers

Sabathia's desire to stay in NY for what's expected to be his final season was apparent, as he turned down other opportunities to remain a Yankee, the source said. I'm interested in adding more than one pitcher.

NY finished with a rotation of right-handers Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and Lance Lynn along with left-handers Sabathia and Happ.

If the Yankees are able to add two from a group of Kluber, Paxton and Corbin, they would certainly narrow the gap between themselves and the defending champion Boston Red Sox in the AL East.

EU Brexit envoy says ‘much more work’ needed to clinch deal
The global trade secretary said on Thursday the government had "an instruction from our voters to leave the EU". Tory Remainer Dominic Grieve said a border in the Irish Sea would be "unacceptable".

"He finished batting in the middle of our lineup in the post-season, so I don't see why three weeks since that time would change our evaluation process", Cashman said.

Needless to say, Cashman and Co. recognize that starting pitching is a major need fresh off a 100-win season that saw NY put up historic numbers on offense.

In 29 starts last season, Sabathia threw 153 innings of 3.65 ERA baseball. He will return to a roster with two other starting pitchers set in Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka. "He has a great reputation throughout the game as a pro, and the performance level was exactly what we needed". The third, David Robertson, remains unsigned as a free agent.

Activision says Destiny 2 is 'not performing as well as we'd like'
As a game, Destiny 2 is better than ever thanks to sweeping changes that were introduced in the Forsaken expansion. It's unclear what sort of new ways Activision plans on implementing the microtransactions moving forward.

Sabathia has been with the Yankees since 2009.

"At this stage of the game, we should know sooner or later whether we'll be able to agree on something or not", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had said earlier Tuesday. "And so we're very active in those discussions. It will lead us eventually to a conclusion". Because shortstop Didi Gregorius will miss much of next season after surgery to fix a torn elbow ligament, Cashman is examining infield options within and outside.
