CC Sabathia is regarded as one of the most durable pitchers in MLB, with a big league career spanning almost two decades. As a highly touted high school athlete, CC signed a letter of intent to play both football and baseball for the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, but before he could do so, Sabathia was drafted in 20th overall by the Cleveland Indians in the 1998 MLB draft.
Sabathia started his career with a stellar rookie season, leading the league in hits per 9 innings pitched as the youngest player in MLB. Sabathia would finish his rookie year second in Rookie of the Year voting just behind Ichiro Suzuki. Sabathia continued his pitching brilliance with the Indians, throwing the fastest fastball in 2005, leading the American in shutouts in 2006, and becoming the first left-handed pitcher to start his career with six consecutive seasons of double-digit wins. In 2007 Sabathia’s great pitching would take the Cleveland Indians to the American League Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox. His performance that year would earn him the 2007 American League Cy Young award. Sabathia was then traded to the Milwaukee Brewers where he would win 11 games for the Brewers before signing a record-breaking $161 million contract with the New York Yankees in 2008. At the time, the deal was the largest ever for a pitcher and Sabathia didn’t disappoint, winning 19 games with almost 200 strikeouts in his fist year in the Bronx. The next season CC would finish third in Cy Young voting after an amazing 21-7 record with a 3.18 ERA. Sabathia has continued to play a significant role in the Yankees organization and is one of only a handful of pitchers to have such a healthy career.
