"CC was very appreciative and is really excited to come back next year and, hopefully, win a championship."Neither side announced the decision, which became evident when the $500,000 was included in the Yankees' final luxury tax payroll."It was something that we did very private and weren't looking to publicize, and I'll just leave it at that," Yankees general man...

Mon Nov 519:33Cashman: Yankees want to bring back Sabathia, Happ
CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Brian Cashman wants to bring CC Sabathia back for an 11th season with the New York Yankees, and he's also holding out some hope of re-signing J.A. Happ.Eight days after the Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series title in 15 seasons — compared to one in that span for New York — Cashman arrived at the annual general managers' meetings searching for pitching."The Red Sox winning doesn't change the hunger level of trying to deliver a championship sooner than later for our fan base," the Yankees GM said Monday. "I think the hunger and the effort, the passion's there, despite the horrible outcome that took place in the World Series this year."After paying luxury tax for 15 straight years, a total of $341 million, the Yankees dropped below the threshold for the first time in 2018, when Boston took over as baseball's biggest spender for the first time since records began in the free-agent era. Cashman is a man with money to spend this offseason."Yeah, we got... [More]
Tue Oct 911:00Catcher on the mound: Romine pitches in Yanks' blowout loss
NEW YORK (AP) — Austin Romine never expected to replace Aroldis Chapman as the Yankees' closer.A backup catcher, Romine was leaning on the dugout railing and watching New York get blown out by Boston in Game 3 of the AL Division Series when bench coach Josh Bard walked up to him in the eighth inning."Can you throw?" Romine recalled Bard asking."I can try," the seven-year big league veteran replied.Romine became just the second position player to pitch in postseason history. The 29-year-old right-hander — has he ever been called that before? — allowed Brock Holt's two-run ninth-inning homer, completing the first-ever postseason cycle. Romine got the last three outs of New York's 16-1 loss Monday night, the largest margin of defeat for the Yankees in their 396 postseason games."No, I didn't envision myself getting in these playoffs in that role," said Romine, whose previous playoff experience was one start at catcher plus one inning as a late substitute against Houston in last year...

NEW YORK (AP) — Their ace got booed off the mound, loudly. Their manager let things get out of hand.

And tomorrow's obviously do or die."Luis Severino looked out of sorts from the start. There was a TBS report that he began to warm up only 10 minutes before the game began, but Boone insisted he had enough time to get ready... [More]

Thu Sep 2715:38Sabathia ejected for hitting batter, misses $500K bonus mark
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia was ejected for hitting Jesus Sucre on a leg in retaliation for Tampa Bay reliever Andrew Kittredge throwing an inside pitch at Austin Romine, possibly costing the left-hander a $500,000 bonus based on innings.With New York ahead 7-0 Thursday, Sabathia hit Jake Bauers around a hand with two outs in the fifth.Kittredge threw his initial pitch in the sixth high and tight to Romine, and plate umpire Vic Carapazza issued a warning to both benches.New York opened an 11-0 lead and Sabathia hit Sucre on his first pitch in the bottom half, causing Capapazza to eject the pitcher and Yankees manager Aaron Boone.Sabathia stared toward the Tampa Bay side of the field while walking to the Yankees dugout on the third-base side after being tossed. Relievers in both bullpens stood up but the other players remained in the dugouts.Sabathia had thrown 55 pitches and the five innings raised his season total to 153 — two shy of a $500,000 performance bonus in his contract for reaching 155 innings.The 38-year-old left-hander entered 8-7 and lowered his ERA to 3.65. He has a $10 million base salary in his one-year contract.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
