Sabathia joins former teammate Robinson Cano as a client of the famous rapper.

New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia has signed with Roc Nation Sports, the company announced on Thursday.

Sabathia left The Legacy Agency and Greg Genske, who negotiated the star hurler's seven-year, $161 million deal with the Yankees prior to the 2009 season, to join Jay-Z's faction. Roc Nation Sports has Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano under its umbrella, in addition to NBA star Kevin Durant and notable NFL players Victor Cruz and Geno Smith.
