Hearing CC Sabathia has passed his physical so his deal with the Yankees is now official.

The Yankees will still look to add another starting pitcher, but with CC Sabathia re-signed the Yankees have five potential starters including CC, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray, Luis Severino and Jordan Montgomery. This does give the Yankees slightly more leverage in potential trade talks for starters from now on at least. They can wait and make a deal midseason if need be.
