CC Sabathia to Pitch Out of Bullpen for Remainder of 2019 Season

Especially with Domingo German out for the rest of the year following the domestic violence incident, it seemed possible that CC Sabathia might make another start for the 2019 Yankees down the stretch.

Well, if it happens, it won’t be in the regular season, as manager Aaron Boone has come out and said that the big lefty will come out of the bullpen for the remainder of the regular season in an effort to prepare for October.

...

Of course, if Sabathia isn’t going to remain stretched out, his only chance of coming into a postseason game is as an opener or long man out of the bullpen.

This is how a career ends
This is how a career ends
This is how a career ends
Not with a bang but with employment as a middle reliever
