LAS VEGAS (AP) - CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees have agreed on the framework for a $161 million, 7-year deal.
It is the richest contract for a pitcher in baseball history.
The Yankees and Sabathia's agents still need to work out all of the contract details, a baseball official familiar with the talks told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not yet been finalized.
