‘He’s a legend’: Left off ALDS roster, Yankees fighting to make sure CC Sabathia gets another shot

NEW YORK — CC Sabathia dressed quietly in the corner of the Yankees clubhouse Thursday, alone with his thoughts, wondering, praying, whether he has thrown his last professional pitch.

The Yankees open the postseason Friday in the American League Division Series against the Minnesota Twins, but while Sabathia is the heart and soul of this proud franchise, he will be relegated to be a cheerleader in the dugout.

Sabathia is not on the Yankees’ Division Series roster.

And with no guarantee the Yankees will beat the Twins, let alone whether he’ll be on the roster in the next round or potentially the World Series, Sabathia’s career may have ended a few weeks earlier than he envisioned.

That would be quite a way for a career to end, wouldn’t it?
