  • Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet Canada reports that the Blue Jays are giving serious consideration to pursuing CC Sabathia.<p><b>Advice</b>: Sabathia has a history with several of the Blue Jays front-office members from his time in Cleveland. He's coming off a year where he posted a 3.69 ERA in just under 149 innings for the Yankees, and pitched well for New York in the playoffs with a 2.37 ERA in four starts. Considering how limited the pitching market is and how expensive some of the "upper-echelon" starters will be in both cost and years, this could be a way to upgrade the Toronto rotation in economical fashion.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="http://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/blue-jays-notebook-john-gibbons-fan-workhorse-cc-sabathia/">Sportsnet</a></p>

Sabathia is clearly comfortable in New York and the Yankees could use an innings eater for the 2018 season, so a re-up would make a ton of sense.
