Sabathia posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 28 starts last season, fanning 197 batters in 200 innings. The 32-year-old lefty underwent elbow surgery in October but is expected to be recovered by Opening Day.
The Yankees owe Sabathia a total of $99 million in guaranteed salary through the 2017 season.
