Sabathia is coming off of a one-year, $10-million contract with the Yankees signed in December of last year. The 38-year-old authored a 3.65 ERA and 4.16 FIP over 153 innings.
The forthcoming 2019 season will mark the veteran's 19th season in the big leagues. The six-time All-Star owns a 3.70 ERA over 538 career starts. By career innings pitched, Sabathia ranks 75th in MLB history. Currently sitting at 3470 innings, Sabathia will quickly surpass Hall of Famer John Smoltz and has a shot to rank upwards of 60th by season's end, surpassing Yankees legend Mike Mussina.
