CC Sabathia Re-Signs with Yankees

New, 173 comments

Just hours before he could've used his opt-out clause, CC Sabathia agreed to a five-year extension with the Yankees worth at least $122 million. 

There will be a vesting option for a sixth year at $25 million (or a $5 million buyout). The option vests based on whether CC is healthy in 2016 (it's killed if he ends '16 on the DL, spends more than 45 days on the DL with a left shoulder injury (how specific), or makes six relief appearances due to shoulder problems).

It's great to have him back and get it out of the way to soon.
