New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia announced before the season that 2019 would be the final one of his 19-year major league career. And it's doubtful that any team was happier to hear the news than the Minnesota Twins.

The 39-year-old Sabathia is scheduled to make his final regular season start at Target Field in Minneapolis in Monday night when the American League East-leading Yankees open a three-game series with the AL Central-leading Twins.

Sabathia (5-4, 4.06 ERA) is 20-9 with a 3.09 ERA in 39 career starts against Minnesota and is 12-1 in his last 16 starts against the Twins. The 20 wins are tied with Justin Verlander of the Astros for the most of any active player and also rank eighth all-time against Minnesota.
