CC Sabathia (knee) played catch on Saturday.
It's the second time he's done so since landing on the disabled list. Sabathia was sporting a large brace on his arthritic right knee when he threw and will have to wear it if he returns this season. There's no room for him in the Yankees' rotation at the moment, although the club talked about using a six-man rotation before Sabathia was injured. Aug 30 - 9:56 AM

CC Sabathia (knee) said Tuesday that he hopes to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible.

Sabathia has an arthritic right knee, but he received good news when he went for a second opinion Tuesday in New York. Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Monday that the southpaw could be done for the season, but he's aiming for a quick return. Sabathia has struggled to the tune of a 5.27 ERA this season.

CC Sabathia (knee) will receive a second opinion in New York on Tuesday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said earlier Monday that Sabathia could be done for the season with a right knee injury, but the left-hander will do his best to make it back. "That’s the plan, to try to be back out on the field," Sabathia said. More should be known about his chances on Tuesday.

Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee injury.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said while making the announcement that Sabathia could be done for the year. Sabathia had surgery on his right knee last season and has needed it drained on two different occasions this summer. If his 2015 is indeed over, the veteran southpaw will finish up with a 5.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 113/37 K/BB ratio in 138 1/3 innings. He's owed $25 million in 2016.
Aug 24 - 4:04 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that he expects CC Sabathia (knee) to be placed on the disabled list.

Sabathia was scheduled to undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee. As the team had been planning to move to a six-man rotation upon the return of Michael Pineda on Wednesday, it seems likely they'll now opt to keep the traditional five-man alignment until Sabathia is ready to return.

CC Sabathia will undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee.

That's the knee he had surgery on last season and the one he's had drained on two occasions since spring training. The Yankees had been slated to go to a six-man rotation with Michael Pineda's (forearm) return this week, but it's possible Pineda might now just replace Sabathia.
Aug 23 - 2:56 PM

CC Sabathia left Sunday's start against the Indians with an undisclosed injury.

Sabathia tallied a strikeout for his second out of the third inning but then had to walk off the field with an apparent malady. The Yankees should provide an update on him shortly.
Aug 23 - 2:22 PM

CC Sabathia gave up four runs in 6 2/3 innings, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's win against the Twins.

Sabathia limited the Twins to one run through his first six innings, but fell apart in the seventh. Miguel Sano clubbed a two-run homer and Shane Robinson added an RBI single to bring in one of the runners Sabathia put on base. The lefty allowed five hits and walked three while striking out five. He hasn't been able to put things together for more than a start or two at a time, and now has a 5.24 ERA with a 1.42 WHIP and a 112/33 K/BB ratio over 135 2/3 innings. Sabathia will try for better results in a home start against the Indians next.
Aug 18 - 10:50 PM

CC Sabathia dropped to 4-9 after allowing two runs in six innings against the Indians.

It's a quality start for Sabathia, but he allowed nine hits, walked two and struck out just two against a lineup missing Michael Brantley, Jason Kipnis and Yan Gomes. With the Yankees scoring just one, it wasn't quite good enough tonight.
Aug 12 - 11:14 PM

CC Sabathia held the Red Sox to one run and three hits in six innings and struck out eight Thursday.

Sabathia has been plenty good in his two starts against the Red Sox this year and just not really anyone else. This was a nice outing, in which he came up one shy of his season high for strikeouts, but it's probably not the start of a trend. At least he'll miss this weekend's series against the Blue Jays and face the Indians next.
Aug 6 - 10:28 PM

CC Sabathia gave up five runs in five innings Thursday in a no-decision versus the Rangers.

Any chance of Sabathia losing his rotation spot probably vanished with Michael Pineda's injury. Still, things aren't getting any better for him. He's allowed five runs in back-to-back outings, pushing his ERA back up to 5.54.
Jul 31 - 12:38 AM

CC Sabathia was smacked around by the Twins in a Saturday no-decision, allowing five runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Sabathia's been one of the worst starters in the majors this season, and that trend continued on Saturday, when the Twins lit him up for five runs over 5 2/3 innings. All five runs came home via the long ball, with Aaron Hicks lighting the veteran southpaw up for a two-run shot in the first inning, and fellow old person Torii Hunter crushing a three-run homer off him in the third inning. Despite the struggles, Alex Rodriguez would homer three times and take Sabathia off the hook for the loss. Still, his overall numbers are cringe-worthy, as he now holds a 5.38 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 94/24 K/BB ratio across 112 1/3 innings. He'll take to the road against the Rangers in his next start as he attempts to save what's turning into a lost season.
Jul 25 - 10:24 PM

CC Sabathia struck out seven while tossing six innings of one-run ball in Sunday's 2-1 victory over the Mariners.

Sabathia issued just one walk while yielding six hits in what was a rare fine outing from the left-hander. He was unable to pick up a win, though, as the Yankees didn't go ahead until Mark Teixeira's home run in the eighth. Sabathia now boasts a 91/21 K/BB ratio over 106 1/3 frames this season, but it's come along with a 5.25 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. He'll get the Twins on the road next weekend.
Jul 19 - 4:19 PM

CC Sabathia said he had his right knee drained and had a PRP injection in the knee after his last start.

Sabathia had his most recent start pushed back from Sunday to Wednesday to get the treatment on the knee. It's the second time he's had issues with the knee since spring. He's pushing through, but it hasn't always been pretty. Sabathia appears quite literally to be on his last leg.
Jul 8 - 10:46 PM

CC Sabathia's next scheduled start has been pushed back from Sunday to Wednesday.

Ivan Nova will move up to take the ball Sunday versus the Rays, while Sabathia will take on the A's the next time out. The Yankees think some extra rest might do the struggling Sabathia some good and the southpaw is also working on some mechanical stuff.
