The Yankees have re-signed CC Sabathia to a one-year, $10M deal, sources confirmed. The Yankees now have five starters with Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray and Jordan Montgomery filling out the rest of the rotation. Sabathia's resigning will not preclude the Yankees from trading or signing another starter. Sabathia is now in place after Yankees GM Brian Cashman and Sabathia's Roc Nation agent, Kyle Thousands, agreed on the deal today. It is pending a physical.

Texas has a lot of left-handed starting pitchers; Astros and Angels have very right-handed lineups.

Red Sox liked Carlos Santana's combination of on-base skills, pop and leadership qualities. They just didn't value the package as much as the Phillies, who can point to Santana as a winning player in future attempts to lure veterans as part of their rebuild. Santana isn't a true middle-of-the-order thumper, but Sox hopeful his signing helps spur movement in the markets for J.D. Martinez and Eric Hosmer.
