CC Sabathia doesn't appear ready to hang 'em up just yet, although that could change based on his health.

Sabathia will turn 38 years old on Saturday, and when recently asked if 2018 will be his last year in the majors, the veteran said he'd like to see if his body can hold up for one more season.

"I'm (going) start to start," Sabathia told MLB.com's Jon Morosi last weekend in Cleveland. "I go out one start and feel like I can pitch five more years. I go out another start and I'm (feeling) done. But if I can stay healthy - if my knee holds up - hopefully I'll play one more."

Sabathia is one of the league's oldest active players, but is still an effective member of the Yankees' rotation, pitching to a 3.51 ERA and 1.27 WHIP across 18 starts in 2018.

His potential retirement has already been brought up this season, and Sabathia said he may return if the Yankees win a World Series.

During his 18 years in the majors, Sabathia has recorded 243 career wins, made 527 starts, and tallied 2,923 strikeouts. He also won the 2007 Cy Young Award and is a six-time All-Star.
