New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has long held an image as one of the rounder players in Major League Baseball. That appears to have changed, as Sabathia's wife Amber posted a photo of the ace lefty at a wedding over the weekend looking positively slim.

He denies that he has lost weight, instead saying that an offseason of intense training has helped bring tone to his physique. Per Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports (h/t Mike Axisa of CBS Sports), Sabathia says: 

I’m actually the same weight as I was last year, just a little more toned and a lot more strong. This is the first offseason I was able to weight-train and get stronger and not worry about weight loss.
