Yanks’ Sabathia back for one more season
Months before the start of spring training, the New York Yankees’ injury list is lengthening. Catcher Gary Sanchez had surgery on his left shoulder Thursday, which could slow him during spring training, but is not likely to keep him out of the lineup on opening day. Earlier, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman finalized an $8-million, one-year contract with CC Sabathia. The 38-year-old left-hander said 2019 will be his final season. New York announced last month that Didi Gregorius will miss much of next season after Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ligament in the shortstop’s right elbow.
