Jay Z adds C.C. Sabathia to his list of represented athletes

  • David Whitlock

Veteran New York Yankees lefthanded pitcher C.C. Sabathia has signed on with Roc Nation, joining Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant, and Victor Cruz as All-Star athletes on Jay Z’s sports agency roster.  The news was tweeted by Roc Nation’s official account:

And the 33-year-old also broke the news via his official twitter account.  Sabathia is signed with the Yankees through 2017 (assuming an option vests associated with his shoulder) and will make nearly $100M in base salary total in the next four years.  He sits at 205 wins with a legitimate shot at 300 if the Yankees get back to the glory days of 95 wins or more each season.  Sabathia has been on six All-Star Game rosters and won the Cy Young in 2007 with the Cleveland Indians.  His scant 14 wins and 4.78 ERA in 2013 raised eyebrows around media (and fantasy baseball) circles that his best days might be behind him.  With Jay Z and the Roc Nation team behind him, he’ll be looking to prove doubters wrong.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
