CC Sabathia limited the Twins to just one unearned run over six innings in the Yankees' 8-3 win Tuesday.
Sabathia issued a two-out walk and a double in the first inning and watched a runner come home when Aaron Judge misplayed the ball in right field. He yielded only a single over the next five frames, though, striking out four on the night as he cruised through six. Sabathia isn’t missing bats, but he’ll carry a 1.86 ERA into Anaheim on Sunday.

CC Sabathia allowed two unearned runs over 4 1/3 innings Thursday against the Blue Jays.

In his return from a minor hip strain, Sabathia threw 71 pitches in getting through 4 1/3 innings. He allowed four hits while walking one and striking out one. He's got a 2.70 ERA through three starts but it's hard to tell what to make of him at this point -- two of those starts have lasted less than five innings, and the other lasted only five. The Yankees will win their share of games for the 37-year-old, but the rest of his stats will likely leave something to be desired. He'll continue looking for his first win Tuesday against the Twins.
Apr 19 - 9:44 PM

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

Sabathia will return to the Yankees' rotation on Thursday against the Blue Jays. He didn't make a minor league rehab start, but the veteran left-hander did throw a couple of extended bullpen sessions. Sabathia has been on the disabled list since April 7 because of a minor hip strain.
Apr 19 - 3:21 PM

CC Sabathia (hip) is expected to rejoin the Yankees' rotation on Tuesday versus the Marlins.

Sabathia threw a 57-pitch bullpen on Thursday and will throw another one Saturday. The big left-hander said Friday that his injured right hip is a non-issue at this point.
Apr 13 - 4:40 PM

CC Sabathia (hip) threw a bullpen session Thursday.

Assuming he recovers from the 'pen session with no issues, Sabathia should be ready to rejoin the Yankees' rotation sometime next week. He suffered a right hip strain in his second start of the season.
Apr 13 - 11:19 AM

CC Sabathia (hip) played catch Tuesday.

Sabathia suffered a right hip strain during his start last Friday, but he said he hasn't felt any pain in the past couple of days. The veteran southpaw hopes to test himself with a bullpen session soon. We should know more on his status after that.
Apr 10 - 7:45 PM

Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 10-day disabled list with a right hip strain.

Sabathia sustained the injury during Friday's start against the Orioles. The silver lining, is that an MRI revealed no structural damage, so he shouldn't be looking at a lengthy absence. It's unclear at the moment how the Yankees plan to fill his vacancy in the starting rotation.
Apr 7 - 9:47 AM

Yankees' manager Aaron Boone reported after Friday's game that the MRI on the right hip of hurler C.C. Sabathia didn't show much.

It's encouraging to know that there was no structural damage found, but what remains unclear is how long the veteran southpaw will be sidelined. It sounds like they'll take it day-by-day before determining if he'll require a trip to the disabled list.
Apr 7 - 12:43 AM

CC Sabathia was forced to leave Friday's start against the Orioles due to a right hip injury.

The Yankees are calling it right hip soreness for now, but he'll undergo an MRI just to be sure. Before departing he had allowed three runs in his four innings of work, all on solo home runs to Manny Machado (2) and Chris Davis.
Apr 6 - 9:02 PM

CC Sabathia let in two runs -- one earned -- in five innings and had to settle for a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Justin Smoak drove in both runs -- with an RBI single in the first inning and an RBI double in the third. Sabathia allowed five hits and two walks while fanning four in the ballgame. The 37-year-old will have a prodigious offense supporting him this year and could generate some decent fantasy value as long as he stays healthy. He went 14-5 with a 3.69 ERA in 27 starts a year ago.
Mar 31 - 7:06 PM

CC Sabathia threw four innings of one-run ball against the Tigers in Thursday's tie.

Sabathia was pitching in an official spring game for the first time in 12 days and second time overall. He gave up a lefty-on-lefty homer to Leonys Martin today, but he otherwise held the Tigers to three singles and a walk.
Mar 13 - 4:13 PM

Making his spring debut, CC Sabathia struck out three in two hitless innings Thursday against the Phillies.

The only batter to reach against him did so on a Jace Peterson error. Sabathia finished the previous three springs with ERAs of 8.10, 5.51 and 6.75, so he's not usually at his best in March. This might be the healthiest he's been going into a season in quite some time, though.
Mar 1 - 5:30 PM

Yankees re-signed LHP CC Sabathia to a one-year, $10 million contract.

The deal was agreed to on December 16 and then finalized Tuesday after Sabathia passed a physical. The veteran left-hander drew free agent interest this winter from teams like the Angels and Blue Jays, but he always seemed destined to return to New York. Sabathia put up a solid 3.69 ERA (122 ERA+) over 148 2/3 regular-season innings in 2017 before registering a 2.37 ERA across four playoff starts.

Mark Feinsand of reports that the Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with CC Sabathia.

The deal is pending a physical. It will be the 10th season spent in New York for the 37-year-old southpaw who posted a 3.69 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in a resurgent 2017 season. He give the Yankees much needed depth in the starting rotation, but it's likely they'll still be in the market for additional arms despite this signing.
Sat, Dec 16, 2017 12:47:00 PM

Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet Canada reports that the Blue Jays are giving serious consideration to pursuing CC Sabathia.

Sabathia has a history with several of the Blue Jays front-office members from his time in Cleveland. He's coming off a year where he posted a 3.69 ERA in just under 149 innings for the Yankees, and pitched well for New York in the playoffs with a 2.37 ERA in four starts. Considering how limited the pitching market is and how expensive some of the "upper-echelon" starters will be in both cost and years, this could be a way to upgrade the Toronto rotation in economical fashion.
