CC Sabathia worked six scoreless innings as the Yankees beat the Red Sox in the first game of Sunday's day-night doubleheader at Fenway Park.

Sabathia issued five walks, but he held the Red Sox to two hits and the Yankees' bullpen kept the combined shutout intact. Sabathia is now 8-3 on the season with a 3.54 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 66/32 K/BB ratio in 84 innings. He struck out three batters on Sunday. A road start against the Mariners is next for the big lefty.
Jul 16 - 4:27 PM

CC Sabathia will start Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.

Bryan Mitchell had been slated to start Sunday's opener but after the Yankees used eight pitchers in Saturday's 16-inning win, Mitchell will likely come out of the bullpen instead. Sabathia hasn't pitched since July 4, so he'll be well-rested. The veteran left-hander had his best start of the season against the Red Sox on June 7, allowing just five hits over eight shutout innings.
Jul 15 - 11:56 PM

CC Sabathia struggled in his return from the disabled list Tuesday against the Blue Jays, giving up four runs in 2 2/3 innings.

Sabathia wasn’t very sharp, allowing three hits and three walks while throwing 35 out of 63 pitches for strikes. All four runs scored in the third inning. The veteran southpaw skipped a minor league rehab assignment before returning from his hamstring injury, but it might have been good for him to shake the rust before returning.
Jul 4 - 4:43 PM

Yankees activated LHP CC Sabathia from the 10-day disabled list.

Sabathia, who suffered a hamstring strain on June 13, skipped a minor league rehab assignment and will make his return Tuesday against the Blue Jays. The veteran southpaw returns to a 3.46 ERA across 13 starts.
Jul 4 - 11:49 AM

CC Sabathia (hamstring) will return Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Sabathia felt he didn't need a rehab assignment after a strong showing in Thursday's simulated game and apparently the Yankees agreed. The left-hander has enjoyed a resurgent season for the Bombers, though he hasn't pitched particularly well in his two starts against Toronto (6.10 ERA).
Jul 1 - 6:14 PM

CC Sabathia (hamstring) threw three innings in a simulated game on Thursday.

Sabathia felt his outing went well and declared himself ready to rejoin the Yankees' starting rotation. It's rare for pitchers to return without making at least one rehab start but apparently Sabathia feels he's far enough along in his recovery to bypass that step. The left-hander was having a resurgent season before his hamstring injury (7-2, 3.46 ERA).
Jun 29 - 5:26 PM

CC Sabathia (hamstring) threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday.

It was his first bullpen session since being placed on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring earlier this month. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sabathia is progressing "very, very well" and mentioned that a simulated game could be the next step. The veteran southpaw appears on track to return before the All-Star break.
Jun 26 - 9:38 AM

Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Sabathia suffered the injury in his last start Tuesday against the Angels and could miss up to four weeks. The 36-year-old was having a resurgent year before his injury, going 7-2 with a 3.46 ERA over his first 13 starts. His place in the starting rotation is likely to be filled by either Chad Green or Domingo German.
Jun 15 - 7:54 PM

CC Sabathia has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain.

This makes a stint on the disabled list all but certain for the veteran southpaw. He suffered the injury during Tuesday's loss to the Angels, when he was forced out after four innings of work. This marks a big blow to the Yankees, as Sabathia had been on an absolute roll over the last month. Chad Green and Domingo German are options to start in his place, but the Bombers will probably be playing this by ear as they go. There is no current timetable for Sabathia's return.
Jun 14 - 9:59 PM

CC Sabathia suffered a strained left hamstring in Tuesday's start against the Angels and manager Joe Girardi anticipates the pitcher will need a stint on the 10-day disabled list.

Sabathia left his start after four innings after allowing one unearned run and three hits with one walk and four strikeouts. He'll have an MRI on Wednesday to determine the severity of the injury. "It sucks," Sabathia said. "You want to be out there with the guys." He had won his previous five starts. His next turn in the rotation is set for Sunday at Oakland. Chad Green or Domingo German might be in line to take that turn.
Jun 14 - 3:41 AM

CC Sabathia shut out the Red Sox for eight innings, allowing just five hits, in the Yankees' 8-0 win Friday.

Sabathia had a 1.47 ERA in his first three starts, a 9.58 ERA in his next four and now a 1.11 ERA in his last five. He's probably going to start giving up more homers -- it's hard not to in Yankee Stadium -- but his current 3.66 ERA doesn't seem all that outlandish given his peripherals.
Jun 7 - 10:11 PM

CC Sabathia allowed a run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings, striking out seven, in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.

The win was the fourth in a row for Sabathia, who hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of those four starts. It's worth noting that he's beaten the Royals, Rays, Athletics and now Jays in those four starts -- not exactly a murderer's row -- but stats are stats. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 4.12 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 11 starts. Sabathia will try to make it five straight when he faces the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Jun 1 - 11:47 PM

C.C. Sabathia picked up his fifth victory of the season on Saturday, striking out nine over 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball against the Athletics.

The veteran southpaw allowed six hits and three walks on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came late, with an RBI double from Ryon Healy in the sixth and a solo blast by Josh Phegley in the seventh. Now 5-2 on the season, Sabathia will carry a 4.42 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Blue Jays in Toronto.
May 27 - 4:26 PM

CC Sabathia allowed just two runs -- one earned -- over five innings Sunday in the Yankees' defeat of the Rays.

The first run came in the bottom of the first inning when a pickoff throw from catcher Gary Sanchez went awry and allowed Corey Dickerson to score from second base. Derek Norris then hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth. Sabathia gave up just four total hits and issued only one walk while striking out six. He'll carry a 4-2 record and 4.62 ERA into his next start at home versus the Athletics.
