CC Sabathia said that he hopes to continue pitching after the 2017 season.
"I know I want to pitch after next year, but I haven't thought about where or what. Hopefully it will be here. We'll see," Sabathia said. His current contract is set to expire at the end of the 2017 season. He will be 37 years old at that juncture. Despite some rocky moments, the veteran southpaw has done a nice job transitioning from a thrower into a pitcher as his stuff has diminished. In 172 1/3 innings this season, Sabathia holds a 4.02 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 144/63 K/BB ratio. Sep 28 - 11:35 PM

CC Sabathia pitched well in a no-decision Saturday against the Blue Jays, allowing just four hits and three walks over seven shutout frames.

He logged two strikeouts while throwing 58 of his 91 pitches for strikes. Sabathia benefited from a couple of double plays but it was still one of the left-hander's best outings of the season. Unfortunately the Yankees' offense went dormant, failing to score for the third straight game. His record doesn't reflect it but Sabathia has actually had a nice bounce-back year. His 4.02 ERA is his lowest since 2012. Sabathia's last start of the season will come Thursday against the Red Sox in David Ortiz's last game at Yankee Stadium.

C.C. Sabathia struggled in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday, allowing four runs (one earned) on eight hits over five-plus innings of work.

The veteran southpaw struck out five while walking three. He kept the Red Sox off the board through the first four frames until Hanley Ramirez socked a three-run homer in the fifth inning. He has done a relatively decent job overall this season, compiling a 4.03 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 165 1/3 innings. He'll do battle against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Saturday.
Sep 18 - 11:48 PM

CC Sabathia was on his game Tuesday, punching out seven across 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Dodgers.

The Dodgers struggle against lefties and they had their hands full with Sabathia in this one, as the big southpaw yielded just three hits and a walk on the night. Yankees managed Joe Girardi decided not to press his luck, though, pulling Sabathia after he retired the leadoff hitter in the seventh even though he had thrown just 93 pitches. It kept the lefty from getting a win, but that doesn't take away from what was a terrific showing. Sabathia will take a 4.10 ERA into Fenway on Sunday.
Sep 13 - 10:29 PM

CC Sabathia wasn't long for Thursday's game, allowing three runs on seven hits over four innings against the Rays.

Sabathia wasn't a disaster, but three of his seven hits allowed went for homers, and manager Joe Girardi obviously had seen enough after four innings. The southpaw did manage to avoid taking a loss despite his ineffectiveness, staying at 8-12 with a 4.27 ERA over 26 starts. An interleague date with the Dodgers is on tap for Tuesday.
Sep 8 - 11:01 PM

CC Sabathia allowed two runs -- one earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

Sabathia gave up six hits, including a solo homer, over his six innings, but the Yankees couldn't do anything against Orioles starter Kevin Gausman and company. The loss was his second in a row, dropping him to 8-12 with a 4.20 ERA through 25 starts. Sabathia will try to get back in the win column Thursday against the Rays.
Sep 3 - 11:01 PM

CC Sabathia pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Orioles, surrendering three runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Sabathia struck out eight and walked two on the afternoon. Neither team found any offensive traction until the sixth inning, when Steve Pearce snapped the spell with a solo homer. The O's would score twice more in the seventh to polish off the scoring on Sabathia's line. The veteran southpaw has pitched respectably enough for a back-of-the-rotation arm, but his 4.31 ERA and 1.35 WHIP don't inspire much fantasy confidence. A road start against these same Orioles shows next on his schedule.
Aug 28 - 4:54 PM

The Yankees announced Saturday that C.C. Sabathia and Michael Pineda will flop places in the starting rotation, with Sabathia working on Sunday against the Orioles.

That means that Pineda will pitch on Monday against the Royals in Kansas City and is now lined up for two starts next week. Given Pineda's propensity to give up the long ball, pitching him on the road instead of Yankee Stadium certainly makes sense.
Aug 27 - 10:14 AM

CC Sabathia was fantastic in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Mariners, firing seven innings of three-hit, one-run ball.

Sabathia struck out seven and walked just one in what was one of his stronger starts of the season. The only run to score on his watch came in the third inning, when Ketel Marte picked up an RBI single off the veteran southpaw. The shiny outing must have felt all the sweeter for what came before, as Sabathia was shelled for seven runs by the Blue Jays last time out. He will try to replicate Tuesday's results when he brings his 4.33 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 117/52 K/BB ratio (137 1/3 innings) into a road date with the Royals next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 24 - 12:58 AM

CC Sabathia gave up seven earned runs in six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Sabathia struck out 12 and issued only one walk, but the Jays pounded him for nine hits, including a Melvin Upton three-run homer in the top of the fifth inning. Sabathia is the first American League pitcher to allow seven-plus earned runs and whiff a dozen batters since Randy Johnson in 1998. The big left-hander will carry a 7-10 record and 4.49 ERA into his next start on the road against the Mariners.
Aug 17 - 4:04 PM

CC Sabathia yielded three runs over six innings Friday in a win over the Rays.

Sabathia stuck around just long enough for the Yankees to take the lead in the bottom of the sixth. The veteran southpaw allowed four hits and walked three while striking out seven batters. It was his highest strikeout total since July 4. He’s now 7-9 on the year to go along with a 4.20 ERA. He has a tough matchup coming up against the Blue Jays next week at home.
Aug 12 - 11:48 PM

C.C. Sabathia gave up three runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in a losing effort against the Indians on Saturday.

The veteran southpaw walked four and struck out five against the club that he broke into the big leagues with. His problem on Saturday was keeping the ball in the yard, with Jason Kipnis and Mike Napoli each belting solo homers against him. He'll look to improve upon his 4.18 ERA and 1.39 WHIP when he takes on the Rays on Friday.
Aug 6 - 4:10 PM

CC Sabathia struggled Monday but escaped with a no-decision, yielding five runs across 5 2/3 innings in a 6-5 extra-innings win over the Mets.

The Mets had runners all over the bases against the big left-hander, as Sabathia gave up eight hits and walked three. Sabathia survived on smoke and mirrors for a while, but he's really struggled over the last six weeks. He'll take a 4.15 ERA into this weekend's outing against the Indians.
Aug 1 - 11:17 PM

CC Sabathia held the Astros to two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a win Tuesday.

Sabathia gave up a pair of solo homers but allowed just two other hits and walked two in the outing. It was his first win in nearly a month and a half and the first time he's allowed fewer than four runs in the same span. Sabathia is 6-8 with a 3.95 ERA and 1.35 WHIP, and he'll next take on the Mets on Monday.
Jul 26 - 11:46 PM

Jon Heyman of reports that the Blue Jays sent scouts to watch "at least" CC Sabathia and Andrew Cashner's starts on Thursday.

Both pitchers pitched well, although Sabathia allowed a couple runs late to make his line look not so great. The big left-hander has 10-and-5 rights, so he has the ability to block any trade if he wants. The 36-year-old has had a solid bounce-back season overall but has struggled of late, allowing at least four runs in six straight starts. Cashner is a virtual shoo-in to be moved, likely before his next start. Both pitchers are set for free agency this winter. Heyman believes that the Jays pursuing rotation help could indicate that they're ready to follow through with their initial plan and eventually move Aaron Sanchez to the bullpen.
