CC Sabathia plans to pitch next season, even if it means leaving the New York Yankees to find a contract.

"I definitely want to play next year," Sabathia said. "I'll play anywhere. I still want to play. I still want to pitch. I definitely can help and still get guys out. So whoever needs me."

At this point, a reunion with the Yankees seems the most likely outcome.

Sabathia, 38, threw 153 innings with a 3.65 ERA this season. He'll start Game 4 of the ALDS against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night with the Yankees facing elimination.
