Yankees Make Offer to CC, Offers Coming For Burnett and Lowe

yankeesFriday, the New York Yankees tendered an offer to all-star pitcher CC Sabathia. The offer is expected to be somewhere in the ballpark of 6 years and slightly more cash than Mets’ pitcher Johan Santana’s mega $137.5 million deal.

If Sabathia’s offer is indeed more money than Santana’s, CC will be the highest paid pitcher ever. Yankees’ chairman Hank Steinbrenner confirmed Friday night that an offer was extended to Sabathia and offers will be on their way for pitchers A.J. Burnett and Derek Lowe.  Burnett already has an offer from Toronto which is for 4-years, $54 million.  After being traded from Cleveland on July 7th, Sabathia went 11-2 with a 1.65 ERA while with the “Brew Crew.”
