CC Sabathia signs with Jay-Z's Roc Nation

Published Add your comment

New York Yankees pitcher has signed with Roc Nation Sports, the sports agency headed up by hip hop mogul and icon Jay-Z.

A release on the Roc Nation website just showed a picture of Sabathia and Jay-Z signing contract papers under the headline "Roc Nation Sports is excited to welcome CC Sabathia to the family!"

The Yankee joins former teammate and current Seattle Mariner, Robinson Cano on the agencies clientele alongside Geno Smith and Victor Cruz of the NFL, NBA star Kevin Durant and the WNBA's leading lady Skylar Wiggins.

The 33-year old has a couple years left on his contract through to 2016, currently earning $23 million a season in New York. So it will be a while before 'Hova' and his team of agents and lawyers can look to get the pitcher a new contract like the one Cano got in Seattle.
