Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports Signs Yankees Pitcher CC Sabathia

Jay Z’s sports agency has added New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia to join former teammate Robinson Cano on its growing roster.

Roc Nation Sports says the 33-year-old left-hander agreed to a representation deal Thursday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The pitcher had been represented by Legacy Agency’s group, which includes Brian Peters, Greg Genske and Scott Parker.

Sabathia is signed through 2016 at salaries of $23 million in each of the next two seasons and $25 million in 2016. The Yankees hold a $25 million option for 2017 with a $5 million buyout.

He was 14-13 last year with a career-worst 4.78 ERA.

Cano left Scott Boras last year for Jay Z’s agency and agreed to a $240 million, 10-year deal with Seattle.
