CC Sabathia limited the Twins to two runs over six innings of work in Tuesday's 5-2 victory.
Sabathia was pitching on seven days' rest but didn't show any rust. He surrendered six hits and a walk while striking out five, needing a mere 77 pitches to navigate through his six frames. The big lefty surely could have gone deeper into the game, but with the bullpen he has it's hard to blame Yankees manager Joe Girardi for pulling his starter after six. Sabathia will carry a 3.81 ERA into his start against the Royals next week. Sep 20 - 12:08 AM

CC Sabathia's next start will be pushed back to Tuesday against the Twins.

Sabathia was originally scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Orioles, but Sonny Gray will pitch instead. The move is apparently designed to keep Sabathia off the turf in Toronto next weekend. Of course, the veteran southpaw has a chronic knee issue. The change also has the side benefit of ruling Luis Severino out for a start against the Twins, who could face him in the AL Wild Card game.
Sep 16 - 8:06 PM

CC Sabathia worked 4 1/3 innings of one-run ball Monday in a no-decision versus Tampa Bay.

It's pretty clear that there is still serious concern about Sabathia's right knee, as he was lifted at 88 pitches on Monday night at Citi Field despite posting pretty good results against the hurricane-displaced Rays. The veteran southpaw struck out six, walked two, and gave up six hits -- five singles, one triple. The win went to David Robertson, who tossed 2 2/3 scoreless frames.
Sep 11 - 10:56 PM

CC Sabathia (knee) is scheduled to see Dr. Christopher Ahmad but is on track to make his next start.

Sabathia has a degenerative condition in his knee and missed a start because of it last month. He's never going to be 100 percent, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi thinks the big lefty is well enough. "As far as his knee (is concerned), it’s fine but he talked about the maintenance program, staying ahead of it, and that’s what they’re trying to do," Girardi said. "So I’m not exactly sure what they’re going to do, but he’ll see Dr. Ahmad and we’ll go from there." Sabathia could start as soon as Sunday in Texas, although the exact date of his next outing hasn't been determined yet.
Sep 8 - 10:40 AM

CC Sabathia served up three home runs and five runs over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday’s no-decision versus the Orioles.

Sabathia probably should’ve been done after five innings, as he clearly wasn’t sharp and his pitch count was already nearing 90. Yankees manager Joe Girardi sent him back out there, though, and the big lefty gave up an infield single and then a two-run home run to Mark Trumbo. Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop also took him deep. Sabathia had pitched well in his previous three outings. He’ll try to bounce back in Tampa his next time out.
Sep 6 - 1:13 AM

CC Sabathia held the Red Sox to one run over six innings in the Yankees' 6-2 win Thursday.

As they've been for Sabathia all year, walks were an issue Thursday, but he was able to work around the five free passes he issued to keep the Sox off the scoreboard time and again. The southpaw also gave up four hits while striking out six in the win. With the win, Sabathia moved to 11-5 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 22 starts. A tough matchup with the Orioles in OPACY is on tap for Tuesday.
Sep 1 - 12:26 AM

CC Sabathia's next start will be Thursday against the Red Sox.

Tuesday night's rainout in the Bronx has shaken up the Yankees' rotation schedule a bit. Sabathia tossed seven innings of one-run ball in his last start Friday against the Mariners, and he also looked sharp in his first start off the disabled list August 19 versus Boston.
Aug 29 - 8:05 PM

CC Sabathia fired seven innings of one-run ball against the Mariners on Friday, but had to settle for a no-decision.

The lone run scored on a solo homer from Mike Zunino in the fourth inning. Sabathia struck out six batters and walked just one. The veteran southpaw was shaky in his return from a knee injury earlier this month, but he has bounced back with consecutive solid starts. He’ll bring a 3.82 ERA into a start against the Indians next week in the Bronx.
Aug 26 - 12:06 AM

Making his return from the disabled list, CC Sabathia scattered four hits and two runs over six strong innings Saturday in a win over the Red Sox.

He fanned four and walked one over the course of 80 pitches. The only runs he allowed came in the fifth inning when the Red Sox broke through for two hits and a walk. The big left-hander has been money versus Boston, yielding just two runs in 20 innings against them this year. Saturday’s win was Sabathia’s first since July 21. He’ll make his next start at home Friday against Seattle.
Aug 19 - 10:31 PM

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

Jordan Montgomery was sent down to Triple-A in the corresponding move. Sabathia ended up missing just one start with knee inflammation and will take the hill Saturday at Boston. He'll have his work cut out for him with Chris Sale going for the division-leading Red Sox.
Aug 19 - 5:46 PM

CC Sabathia (knee) will start Saturday against the Red Sox.

Sabathia was widely expected to return Saturday, which happens to be the first day he's eligible to come off the 10-day disabled list. He officially got the green light Wednesday after completing a 25-pitch bullpen session at Citi Field. Sabathia will need to be at his best with Chris Sale going for Boston on Saturday.
Aug 16 - 6:05 PM

CC Sabathia (knee) expects to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Saturday.

Sabathia threw a bullpen session Monday with no issues and will throw one more later this week before rejoining the Yankees' rotation assuming all goes well. Luis Cessa is making a spot start Monday.
Aug 14 - 4:33 PM

Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 9, with right knee inflammation.

It's unclear at the moment how much time the big left-hander will miss. Jordan Montgomery was recalled from Triple-A and will take his place in the rotation for the time being.
Aug 12 - 8:07 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that the MRI on CC Sabathia's injured right knee "came back good."

Looks like Sabathia dodged a bullet in regards to any potential structural damage. He was lifted after just three innings (57 pitches) after tweaking his knee against the Blue Jays on Tuesday. Sabathia has not yet been placed on the disabled list, but a determination on that front should be made in the very near future.
Aug 9 - 5:06 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said CC Sabathia "tweaked" his right knee in the third inning Tuesday night against the Blue Jays.

That explains why the big left-hander was replaced before the bottom of the fourth, having thrown just 57 pitches. Sabathia was charged with four earned runs on a walk and six hits in the eventual 4-2 loss at Toronto. He'll be reevaluated back in New York on Wednesday and Girardi admitted there is "concern."
