    CC Sabathia became the latest athlete to join Jay Z’s Roc Nation Thursday, joining former teammate Robinson Cano, who bolted for Seattle in December after splitting with Scott Boras. Cano signed a 10-year, $240 million deal.

    Unlike Cano, however, Sabathia can’t be a free agent until after the 2016 season at the earliest. He is owed another $71 million over the next three seasons.

    The 33-year-old joins a growing list of star athletes who are teaming up with the rap icon: Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, Jets quarterback Geno Smith, NBA superstar Kevin Durant and women’s basketball star Skylar Diggins.

    Sabathia had been represented by Greg Genske of the Legacy Agency.

    Good luck with this one, Jay Z. Sabathia already looks fried. What’s he going to have by 2017?

      “… Sabathia already looks fried. What’s he going to have [after his 2017 vesting option]?”

      The same number of rings, 50-60 more career wins, and $96 million more of The Steinbrenners’ money.

      “[C.C.] is exactly the type player and person that Yankees fans and this organization can be proud of. We are excited that he will be wearing the pinstripes for many years to come.” – Brian Cashman, 2011.
