Sabathia signed a one-year, $8 million contract with the Yankees on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia will be return to New York for an 11th season after posting a 3.65 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across 29 starts for the Yankees in 2018. While the big southpaw isn't the pitcher he once was, he's posted a respectable 3.76 ERA over the past three seasons. The veteran hurler should have an inside track on an Opening Day rotation spot in 2019, though that could change depending on who else the Yankees bring in this offseason. Sabathis is expected to be fully healthy for spring training despite undergoing a minor knee procedure in October.

General manager Brian Cashman said Sabathia underwent surgery Thursday to clean up his right knee, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cashman added that this was a repeat procedure to the surgery Sabathia underwent last offseason. There shouldn't be any concern over his status heading into the 2019 campaign, as Sabathia was fully operational by the time spring training came around this past year. For the 38-year-old, the looming question is whether he will return to the Bronx for an 11th season or if he will be wearing a different uniform come the spring. Across 29 regular-season starts, he posted a 3.65 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 140 strikeouts in 153 innings.

Sabathia was handed a five-game suspension for throwing at Jesus Sucre in Thursday's start against the Rays. The suspension is effective for the start of the 2019 season and he will appeal, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was ejected from the game as warnings had already been issued after Rays' pitcher Andrew Kittredge threw near Austin Romine's head. Kittredge was served a three-game suspension, also for next season. Regardless, Sabathia will be eligible to pitch for the Yankees in the postseason.

Sabathia pitched five innings and took a no-decision Sunday, yielding two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four in a 3-2 loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia allowed both runs in the first innings and was able to settle down and turn in a decent overall outing. It was certainly an improvement over his last outing, coughing up five runs (four earned) in just 3.1 innings to Oakland. He'll carry a 3.54 ERA into Saturday's start at home against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was rocked for three first-inning runs, and he gave up one in the second and another in the fourth before calling it a day. The 38-year-old lefty has been saddled with back-to-back losses following Monday's performance, as he's surrendered seven earned runs through 9.1 innings while punching out 10 over that span. Sabathia will hope for a better outcome in his next start, which is slated for Sunday against Seattle.
