eparing for life after baseball.ESPN announced Tuesday that Sabathia will contribute to the network during his final MLB season in 2019. The left-hander will appear onSportsCenterandBaseball Tonight http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-madison-bumgarner-jersey , and he will serveas a guest host on ESPN Radio New York's HumptyCanty show.The 38-year-old Sabathia announced this winter he will retire following the 2019 campaign, which will be his 19th as a major leaguer.Sabathia commented on the move, saying,"As I begin to look toward the future, I'm excited to have this opportunity with ESPN. With that said, my singular focus is on winning another World Series championship for Yankees fans and the city of New York."The six-time All-Star is set to enter his 11th season with the Yankees after he spent the first seven-plus years of his career with the Cleveland Indians. He also had a brief, dominant stint with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2008.Although he is approaching 40 Juan Marichal Jersey , Sabathia has been productive near the back end of New York's rotation over the past few seasons. In 2018, Sabathia went 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA. He also struck out 8.2 batter per nine innings, which was his best rate since 2014 when injury limited him to eight starts.Sabathia has had an ERA under 4.00 in each of the past three seasons, and he will be a luxury for the Yankees in 2019 as their fifth starter behind Luis Severino, James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka and J.A. Happ.Sabathia also has a chance to make history. He's just four wins away from 250 and 14 strikeouts away from 3,000. Provided he reaches both http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-cepeda-jersey , he'll become just the 14th player in MLB history to do so, per ESPN.The one-time American League Cy Young Award winner and 2009 World Series champion is already third all-time among lefties in strikeouts, and he will have a chance to round out what may already be a Hall of Fame resume.ESPN noted that Sabathia will begin contributing to spring training coverage this month before embarking on his final MLB season with a title-contending Yankees club. Manager Dave Roberts led the Los Angeles Dodgers to more World Series appearances in the last three years than the franchise had the previous 34 and will be back for the 2019 campaign.According to Pedro Moura of The Athletic, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said the team exercised Roberts' option for 2019. He also said the team expects to sign him to a long-term extension as well.This comes after Moura reported on Thursday that Friedman and then-general manager Farhan Zaidi said they expected to have Roberts and the entire coaching staff back for the 2019 campaign.Friedman also told Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times he planned on inking Roberts to a long-term extension.The manager originally had just a $1.1 million option for 2019, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today.Roberts' three years as the Dodgers manager has been defined largely by success with three National League West crowns and a 287-200 record. The team reached the 2016 National League Championship Series, 2017 World Series and 2018 World Series, although it lost to the eventual champion all three postseasons (Chicago Cubs Gaylord Perry Jersey , Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox).While they haven't gotten over the championship hunt that has haunted them since the 1988 campaign, the Dodgers have been a consistent October force under Roberts' leadership.However, he drew plenty of criticism during the most recent World Series for the way he used his pitching staff in particular. Even the sitting president criticized him as the Red Sox won four of the five games and clinched their fourth title in 15 years.Roberts will have the opportunity to improve on his October performance in 2019 following this deal as Los Angeles looks to move from an annual playoff participant to a champion.
