NEW YORK (AP) — Jay-Z's sports agency says it has signed New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia to join former teammate Robinson Cano in its emerging client base.

Roc Nation Sports says the 33-year-old left-hander agreed to a representation deal Thursday. The ace 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 the new agency and agreed to a $240 million, 10-year deal with Seattle.
