Ackert: Late warmups aside, Luis Severino has not been a reliable ace in October, which means the Yankees need to find one

Could the answer be CC Sabathia, who was charged with saving the Yankees’ 2018 season Tuesday night? He is a free agent and made it clear on Monday that he wants to keep pitching. The Yankees could re-sign him, of course, but that is gambling that the 38-year-old can stay healthy. The veteran lefty was fine this season, going 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA, but needed extra rest to deal with his arthritic right knee. He went into Tuesday night’s game with a proven playoff track record; it was his 23rd playoff start and 24th postseason appearance. He was 10-6 with a 4.20 ERA in that span.
