This will be the second straight offseason that Sabathia re-signs with the Yankees on a one-year deal. He announced it would be his a year ago playing baseball in a video posted on his Twitter page. Naysayers might say what a waste of money given Sabathia's recent knee surgery and decline over the years, yet those who value leadership know that this was a great deal for the Yankees to bring back CC to the helm of the dugout along with incumbent outfielder Brett Gardner. We didn't feel a need to go down that road.

The Yankees will enter the 2019 season with Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka as staples from last season's rotation and could also put top pitching prospect Justus Sheffield in the mix, but Cashman said he hopes the team will re-sign Sabathia, who has been with the Yankees since 2009. Many expected veteran lefty CC Sabathia to remain with the Yankees, and that seems to be the case. And if the Indians are serious about dealing Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco the Yankees will listen.

Sabathia, who underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery October 12, had a physical on Wednesday that was administered by team physician Chris Ahmad.

The past three seasons have reversed a negative trend from 2013-15, when Sabathia, who'll turn 39 in July, was in the early stages of transitioning from a power pitcher to a finesse hurler.

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

In 2018, Sabathia went 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA (153.0IP, 62ER) in 29 starts with the Yankees, producing his lowest ERA since 2012 (3.38). He was on the disabled list twice; once with a balky hip and the other with an inflamed right knee. He's struck out 1,593 batters in 1,810.2 innings pitching to a 3.174 ERA. He leads all active players in innings and strikeouts, and his 246 wins are one behind Bartolo Colon.

Sabathia has spent 10 seasons with the Yankees (2009-18), going 129-80 with a 3.74 in 284 starts.

It was an easy reunion for the Yankees and their big lefty, who made it clear on the eve of the team's Game 4 loss in the ALDS that NY was where he wanted to be.
