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. Jul 3 - 3:57 PM

CC Sabathia yielded four runs in 7 1/3 innings in a losing effort against the Angels on Monday.

It was a reasonably solid effort, but the Yankees weren't able to back him with nearly enough run support. Sabathia gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five. Two of the runs came on solo home runs. The lefty holds a disappointing 5.59 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and an 83/18 K/BB ratio in 95 innings. He'll look to rebound in a home start against the Rays next.

CC Sabathia was roughed up by the Phillies on Tuesday, allowing six runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision.

Sabathia was lucky that his counterpart, Sean O'Sullivan, was arguably even less effective or it would have been a worse result for the lefty. Sabathia allowed two homers among his eight hits, also walking two on the night. The poor showing leaves him with a 5.65 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through 15 starts. It doesn't get much easier for him Sunday when the Yankees travel to take on a suddenly potent Astros offense in Houston.
Jun 24 - 12:15 AM

CC Sabathia pitched six innings and allowed three runs Thursday against the Marlins.

It's Sabathia's sixth quality start in 14 tires this year. He's been adequate of late, but it doesn't look like it's ever going to get much better than that.
Jun 18 - 11:21 PM

CC Sabathia scattered eight hits and four runs over five innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Orioles.

This is what we've come to expect from Sabathia. A workhorse earlier in his career, the 34-year-old hasn't made it past the sixth inning since May 6. He's now allowed 14 home runs, tied for the most in the American League. The left-hander will take the hill again Thursday against Miami.
Jun 13 - 10:47 PM

CC Sabathia struck out seven while allowing just two runs over six innings in Sunday's 6-2 victory over the Angels.

Sabathia served up back-to-back homers to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in the first inning, but that's all the Halos were able to muster off of him. He might have had another inning in him, having thrown just 87 pitches, but Sabathia got into a verbal spat with home plate umpire Dan Bellino over the latter's strike zone after the top of the sixth and was ejected. The argument got heated, but Sabathia didn't make contact with Bellino so it's doubtful he'll be suspended. The lefty will carry a 5.25 ERA into next weekend's matchup in Baltimore.
Jun 7 - 3:50 PM

CC Sabathia limited the Mariners to two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday as the Yankees won in 11 innings.

Sabathia allowed nine hits and a pair of walks, but limited the damage with six strikeouts. One run scored in the third inning on a Nelson Cruz single and the other scored in the sixth on an Austin Jackson double. It turned out to be one of Sabathia's stronger outings in what has been a disappointing year. The veteran lefty has a 5.45 ERA with a 1.47 WHIP and a 57/14 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. Sabathia will face the Nationals at home in his next outing.
Jun 3 - 2:14 AM

C.C. Sabathia struggled again on Thursday, coughing up five runs on eight hits across six innings in a loss to the A's.

Sabathia actually started out quite well. He'd been spotted a 3-0 lead by the bottom of the fifth when the wheels began to fall off, which perhaps could have been predicted when Billy Burns hit a homer. Sabathia has a solid 51/12 K/BB rate, but it comes with a 2-7 record, 5.67 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. Steer clear outside of AL-only formats.
May 29 - 1:10 AM

C.C. Sabathia was pulverized by the Rangers on Saturday, surrendering six runs on seven hits in just 2 1/3 innings.

Sabathia struck out four and walked one on the afternoon. He made it through the first two innings unscathed, but the Rangers erupted for 10 runs in the third inning, chasing the veteran left-hander and putting the game way out of reach. While he has been able to generate strikeouts this season, his 5.47 ERA and 1.42 WHIP are very uninspiring. He'll look to turn things around when he does battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Thursday.
May 23 - 4:13 PM

CC Sabathia hurled seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Yankees' 5-1 defeat of the Royals.

Sabathia was excellent, scattering five hits and a double over his seven frames. He struck out five and did not issue a walk. Sabathia is no longer the dominant power pitcher of old -- his fastball was averaging just 89.7 mph entering play Saturday -- but he's proven capable of sharp outings this season with steady control and good movement. He should remain a usable matchup-to-matchup fantasy starter throughout the summer, and he has a pretty attractive one next week against the Rangers.
May 16 - 10:27 PM

CC Sabathia earned his first win of the season on Monday, giving up four runs (three earned) in seven innings of work against the Rays.

With a power outburst, the Yankees gave Sabathia 11 runs of support, allowing him to pitch comfortably. He gave up only six hits and two walks while fanning nine. Three of those runs came in the seventh inning, when he allowed two solo home runs and a sacrifice fly. The lefty, now 1-5, will bring a 5.20 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a 38/10 K/BB ratio over 45 innings into a weekend start in Kansas City versus the Royals.
May 11 - 10:12 PM

CC Sabathia dropped to 0-5 after giving up four runs in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Sabathia hasn't been a complete disaster, but this makes four out of six starts in which he's allowed at least four runs. There's really nothing for the Yankees to do here; he can't be bounced from the rotation while there's still some hope of adequacy. He'll get the Rays next.
May 6 - 10:04 PM

CC Sabathia yielded two runs in six innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday.

Sabathia held Boston's powerful lineup in check for the most part, allowing just a sacrifice fly to Mookie Betts in the third inning and a solo homer to Allen Craig one inning later. The veteran left-hander struck out three and walked two and now owns a 5.40 ERA through five starts. He'll go into a start with the Blue Jays next week still in search of his first win.
May 1 - 11:07 PM

CC Sabathia was lit up for seven earned runs over five innings Saturday in the Yankees' loss to the Mets.

The crosstown Mets pounced on him early and often in this one, slugging three home runs and nine hits total. Sabathia is now 0-4 with a 5.96 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 22/4 K/BB ratio in 25 2/3 innings this season. Control isn't an issue, but the 34-year-old left-hander is looking very hittable these days. He gets the Red Sox on the road next.
Apr 25 - 7:01 PM

CC Sabathia pitched well but took a tough-luck loss on Monday against the Tigers, yielding two runs in eight innings.

Sabathia shut the Tigers out through six innings, but the Tigers rallied with a pair of two-out RBI singles from J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes to take the lead in the seventh. On most other nights, Sabathia would have gotten a win, but opposing starter Alfredo Simon was on point. Overall, Sabathia gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out five. The lefty will take a 4.35 ERA and a 20/4 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings in search of his first win at home against the Mets in his next start.
