Yankees Won't Talk Opt-Out With Sabathia In Season

Yankees GM Brian Cashman told ESPN.com's Buster Olney that the team won't discuss C.C. Sabathia's upcoming opt-out clause during the season. However, Cashman says he fully expects the left-hander to be with the team in 2012.

Sabathia can opt out of his contract after the season instead of collecting the $92MM he's owed through 2015. As Olney points out, the Yankees allow their free agents - even franchise icons like Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera - to hit free agency before discussing deals. The same applies to Sabathia, who could position himself for well over $100MM in guaranteed money with another Cy Young caliber season.
