CC Sabathia starts for Yankees, as Michael Pineda goes on DL
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3:07 pm ET) Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday due to a right flexor forearm muscle strain.
CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports it is a Grade 1 strain, which is the same injury that kept Yankees closer Andrew Miller out for a month earlier this season.
CC Sabathia was named as the starter for Thursday's game against the Rangers after Pineda was scratched due to the injury.
Yankees C.C. Sabathia gets off the hook after shaky start
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|

Sabathia actually left the game in a 5-0 hole, but the Yankees scored eight unanswered runs to get the lefty off the hook. Sabathia struck out three, walked three and allowed two home runs as his ERA jumped back up to 5.38.

Yankees SP CC Sabathia does enough to get win Wednesday
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/8/15) Yankees starting pithcer CC Sabathia was solid on Wednesday against the Athletics.
Sabathia tossed 5 1/3 innings, allowed seven hits, two runs and two walks. Sabathia, who allowed 17 runs in the four starts prior to this game, did a good job of limiting the A's to just two runs.
Sabathia's start was bumped to Wednesday because he had his knee drained in between starts, he told reporters after the game.
"It was just part of our plan of what we were trying to do to stay healthy," Sabathia said, per MLB.com. "I got it drained between the last start [in Anaheim] and came out today and felt great.
"We knew that I had to get it drained, and I had the off-days coming up, so why not get these young horses out there and kind of let the old man get a couple of days off?"
Sabathia picked up his fourth win of the season and is now 4-8 on the year.
Yankees' Sabathia bumped to Wednesday, Nova starting Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) The Yankees have opted to give struggling veteran pitcher CC Sabathia a few more days off before his next start. Manager Joe Girardi announced Friday that Sabathia will be pushed back to Wednesday against the Athletics.
Sabathia was originally scheduled to start Sunday against the Rays. Ivan Nova will start Sunday for New York.
"It's up to them," Sabathia said, per The Journal News. "Whatever they think is best is the schedule that I'm following. It is what it is."
|2014 summary: CC Sabathia's follow-up to a disappointing 2013 season did not go well and did not last long. The veteran lefty experienced another serious drop in velocity and stood at 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA after his first eight starts. Then he was placed on the disabled list with fluid on his right knee. Just as Sabathia was on the verge of returning in July, he experienced more swelling and required season-ending surgery to clean out the knee.|
Playing time status: Sabathia is expected to be fully ready by the beginning of Yankees spring training.
2015 outlook: Even if Sabathia is completely recovered from surgery, there is the possibility he will be working with diminished velocity. His struggles to keep the ball in the park go all the way back to the second half of 2012, so it may be too much to ask for a full reboot to his previous numbers. In the hopes that he reverts to the All-Star form he had three years ago, Sabathia is worth pursuing in the later rounds of standard mixed league drafts, though his more recent performance suggests that he could go undrafted in those formats.
