Sabathia posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 28 starts last season, fanning 197 batters in 200 innings. The 32-year-old lefty underwent elbow surgery in October but is expected to be recovered by Opening Day.

The Yankees owe Sabathia a total of $99 million in guaranteed salary through the 2017 season.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
