The X-rays on CC Sabathia's injured right ankle came back negative.

Sabathia rolled his ankle twice in Wednesday's game against the Rockies. He first rolled it in the third inning, then again in the fifth. Manager Joe Girardi pulled him from the game after the second tweak. Sabathia said after the game that he plans on making his next start against the Rangers. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Jun 22 - 6:10 PM

CC Sabathia was lit up for six runs -- five earned -- over 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

Colorado's offense tagged Sabathia for seven hits, including a Nick Hundley three-run homer in the fourth, but New York rallied in the seventh and then won it in the bottom of the ninth. The big left-hander watched his ERA jump from 2.20 to 2.71. He's been excellent for the most part since the beginning of May but faces another tough matchup next week in the Rangers.
Jun 22 - 4:44 PM

CC Sabathia held the Twins to one run over six innings in a 4-1 win Thursday.

Sabathia punched out seven while scattering six hits and three walks on the evening. The win was his second in a row to run his record to 5-4, and the lefty now owns a pristine 2.20 ERA through 11 starts. He'll try to keep rolling Wednesday when the Rockies visit for an interleague bout.
Jun 17 - 12:47 AM

C.C. Sabathia continued his resurgent 2016 season on Friday, firing seven shutout innings in a victory over the Tigers.

Sabathia scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four in the contest. While his peripheral stats continue to suggest that regression is imminent (4.62 xFIP, 4.49 SIERA, 3.2% HR/FB%), the veteran southpaw now boasts a 2.28 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 49/24 K/BB ratio across 59 1/3 innings. He draws a nice matchup his next time out, taking on the Twins in Minnesota on Thursday.
Jun 10 - 10:39 PM

CC Sabathia battled through six walks allowed to shut out the Orioles over five-plus innings in Sunday's no-decision.

Sabathia allowed just two hits on the afternoon, but his inability to consistently find the strike zone prevented him from pitching deeper into the game. He threw 111 pitches (68 strikes) and was lifted for reliever Kirby Yates after he walked Chris Davis to open the sixth inning. The veteran southpaw has allowed just three runs on 12 hits over his last four starts, covering 24 innings. He will carry a 2.58 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 45/22 K/BB ratio (52 1/3 frames) into a home start against the Tigers next time he toes the rubber. Sabathia has not posted an ERA south of 4.00 in a season since 2012.
Jun 5 - 7:01 PM

CC Sabathia limited the Blue Jays to two runs over six innings but was saddled with a loss on Tuesday.

He had allowed just a solo homer to Justin Smoak through six frames but was charged with an additional run after the leadoff double he permitted in the seventh came around to score after he exited. Sabathia faced the Jays two starts in a row and came away having allowed just two earned runs. Not bad. He's put up a 1.04 ERA over his last four starts. Sabathia gets the Orioles in Baltimore on Sunday.
May 31 - 10:20 PM

CC Sabathia held the Blue Jays to a pair of unearned runs over seven innings in a loss Thursday.

Sabathia certainly pitched well enough to win -- he allowed two hits, walked one and struck out seven -- but run support was a problem today. Sabathia has allowed just one earned run over 20 innings in three starts this month. That's a whole lot better than in April, when he had a 5.06 ERA that could have been considerably worse if not for some early hooks (he pitched 21 1/3 innings in his four starts that month).
May 26 - 7:29 PM

CC Sabathia allowed one run over six innings and struck out eight in defeating the Athletics on Friday.

Especially now that Josh Reddick is out (courtesy of a lousy throw from Brian McCann on his steal attempt), the A's have the league's least intimidating offense, and we'll surely see more lines like this posted against them over the next six weeks. Sabathia might be an adequate fifth starter for the Yankees, but it's hard to see him helping fantasy leaguers.
May 21 - 2:05 AM

Yankees activated LHP C.C. Sabathia from the 15-day disabled list.

Sabathia, as he indicated he would be, was ready to return from the disabled list on the first day that he was eligible. Prior to suffering a left groin strain, the veteran southpaw posted a 3.81 ERA and 21/13 K/BB ratio over his first 28 1/3 innings. He'll do battle against a hard-hitting A's team on Friday night.
May 20 - 7:12 PM

CC Sabathia (groin) will be activated from the disabled list to start Friday against the Athletics.

It's the first day he's eligible to return. Sabathia had a 3.81 ERA and 21/13 K/BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings over his first five starts prior to suffering a left groin strain earlier this month.
May 16 - 6:30 PM

CC Sabathia (groin) threw 45 pitches in a simulated game on Sunday.

Sabathia said he had "no problems" with his strained groin and he plans to be activated and start on May 20 against the A's, which is the first day he's eligible to return. The big lefty holds a 3.81 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 21/13 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings this season.
May 15 - 10:37 AM

CC Sabathia (groin) threw a successful bullpen session Friday.

Sabathia continues to trend toward a May return. While it may not be May 20, the first day he's eligible to be reinstated, as manager Joe Girardi had hoped, it may not be long after. Sabathia has been on the disabled list since May 6 with the left groin strain.
May 14 - 8:49 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated that it is realistic that CC Sabathia (groin) could be activated from the disabled list on May 20.

May 20 is the first day Sabathia would be eligible to return. The veteran southpaw was sharp in his last pre-DL start, blanking the Orioles over seven innings. Prior to the injury, he held a 3.81 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 21/13 K/BB ratio over five starts (28 1/3 innings).
May 11 - 5:28 PM

C.C. Sabathia (groin) said Saturday that he continues to feel better each day and expects to need only a minimum stint on the disabled list.

Ivan Nova will fill in for him in the Yankees rotation for the time being. Sabathia must be eager to return after firing seven scoreless innings against a tough Orioles lineup his last time out.
