CC Sabathia yielded three earned runs on 10 hits over 7 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Rays.
Sabathia struck out 10 batters and worked deeper than in any other one of his previous starts this year, but the Yankees' offense gave him just one run of support.

CC Sabathia labored a bit but got through 5 2/3 scoreless frames Tuesday in the Yankees' 3-0 win over the Nationals.

Sabathia surrendered just four singles on the night, but he walked three a hit a batter, needing 101 pitches to cover his 5 2/3 innings. He was relieved in the sixth after a two-out infield single by Michael Taylor and Taylor was promptly caught stealing. Sabathia has been inconsistent over the last month, but this was his second straight solid outing. Fantasy owners should start him on Sunday versus the Rays.
Jun 12 - 10:14 PM

CC Sabathia limited the Blue Jays to two runs across seven innings of work Tuesday in the Yankees’ 7-2 win.

Sabathia has yielded just one single and one walk before Teoscar Hernandez took him deep with one out in the sixth inning to break a scoreless tie. The big lefty served up another solo shot to Kevin Pillar in the next frame, but not before the Yankees scored four runs for him to provide a cushion. Sabathia had been in a funk over the last month so this showing was nice to see. He’ll try to keep it going next week in home starts versus the Nationals and Rays.
Jun 5 - 10:08 PM

CC Sabathia allowed five runs – three earned – across just five innings of work Tuesday but escaped with a no-decision in the Yankees' 6-5 extra-innings win over the Astros.

Sabathia gave up just one run over two ALCS starts against the Astros last season, but he wasn’t sharp in this one, permitting eight hits and two walks while needing 99 pitches to cover his five frames. The veteran left-hander got off to a fine start this season but has scuffled over his last four outings with a 7.85 ERA. He’ll try to bounce back Sunday in Baltimore.
May 30 - 12:09 AM

CC Sabathia coughed up seven earned runs, six hits and three walks with just one strikeout across 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Wednesday in Texas.

Sabathia tossed just 58 of his 91 pitches for strikes as his ERA ballooned from 2.40 to 3.55. He hasn't won in four May outings, last tasting victory in a road game against the Angels on April 29. He has allowed four homers over 13 1/3 innings across his past three outings, an area which wasn't an issue earlier in the season. He'll try to turn things around Tuesday against Charlie Morton and the Astros.
May 23 - 11:42 PM

CC Sabathia yielded four runs in five innings Friday in a loss to the Royals.

Sabathia wasn’t as sharp as usual, allowing four hits (including a solo homer to Salvador Perez) and four walks. Keep in mind that he came into Friday’s outing with just five walks in 36 1/3 innings on the year. Perhaps the long layoff was a factor? Either way, Sabathia has taken a step back over his last two outings. He’ll try to get back on the winning track next time against the Rangers on the road.
May 18 - 11:37 PM

CC Sabathia allowed nine hits and four runs over four innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Red Sox.

Sabathia gave up a solo homer among his nine hits, never really falling apart despite clearly not being at the top of his game. The no-decision kept his record at 2-0, and even with the subpar outing Sabathia owns a 2.23 ERA and 1.02 WHIP through seven starts. An interleague start against the tough Nationals is up next when the teams meet Wednesday.
May 11 - 12:12 AM

CC Sabathia told George A. King III of the New York Post that he'll likely retire if the Yankees win the World Series this year.

"I want one more parade and pretty sure that will be it,’’ said Sabathia. "I thought I had it last year." With the way things are going for the Yankees, he has a pretty good shot at it. The 37-year-old Sabathia is off to a great start this season, with a 1.39 ERA over his first six starts. He's at 239 wins for his career, which is tied for 58th all-time.
May 7 - 9:26 AM

CC Sabathia fired six scoreless frames in a no-decision against the Indians on Friday.

The bullpen blew the lead late, but Sabathia was very sharp, allowing just three hits while walking none and striking out seven. The veteran southpaw threw 61 out of 92 pitches for strikes. He’s now sporting a sterling 1.39 ERA and 23/5 K/BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings across his first six starts. Sabathia might not be the pitcher he once was, but he has found his groove as a steady cog in New York’s rotation.
May 4 - 11:07 PM

CC Sabathia was outstanding in Sunday night's victory over the Angels, surrendering just one run on five hits over his seven frames.

The 37-year-old southpaw struck out four and walked one on the night. It's the first time that he has gone seven innings or thrown more than 90 pitches in a start this season. The only blemish on his night came when Justin Upton scampered home on a wild pitch in the sixth inning. Now 2-0 on the season, he'll carry a mighty impressive 1.71 ERA and 0.95 WHIP into Friday's start against the Indians.
Apr 29 - 11:13 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 10:05 PM

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.
