Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Yankees and starter CC Sabathia have agreed to a one-year deal. Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears that the deal is for $8 million. Sabathia didn’t want to search around as a free agent. Instead, he preferred to get something done quickly with the Yankees.

Sabathia, 38, had another solid season for the Yankees in 2018, finishing with a 3.65 ERA and a 140/51 K/BB ratio in 153 innings. In his only postseason start, he gave up three runs in three innings to the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS.

The Yankees are supposedly on the hunt for plenty of starting pitching depth to back up Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka. The club may also trade Sonny Gray. For now, Sabathia will slot into the middle of the rotation.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
