Yankees SP CC Sabathia clobbered Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia was hot. That is, as in past tense. Definitely.
Sabathia went cold in an absolute mashing Saturday against visiting Texas. He gave up seven hits and got just seven outs. The result was six runs and a 2-6 record. He walked one and fanned four.
The seeds of disaster were planted when he allowed back-to-back singles in the second. He escaped that jam, but didn't come close to surviving the third. A walk, wild pitch and five singles knocked him out of the game.
Sabathia had won his previous two starts, having allowed four runs in 14 innings, but his effort Saturday catapulted his ERA from 4.67 to 5.47. He will try to redeem himself Thursday in Oakland.
Starter CC Sabathia snaps Yankees' skid with seven strong IP
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Yankees starter CC Sabathia (2-5) gave up one run on six hits in seven innings to earn the win Saturday againstg the Royals.|
Sabathia's strong start snapped the Yankees' four-game losing streak.
"CC has not been a strong pitcher in April for much of his career," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "But look at what he's done his last few starts. Hopefully he keeps rolling."
The lone run allowed was via a sacrifice fly in the third inning.
"I guess I'm an old man now, Sabathia said when asked about being pulled after seven innings. "[Girardi] needed to take me out and give me a rest."
After dropping his first five decisions of the season, Sabathia has won two straight.
Sabathia is set to make his next scheduled start Saturday, May 23, against the Rangers.
Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia earns first win with seven solid IP
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/11/15) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia (1-5) pitched seven solid innings Monday, allowing three earned runs on six hits in seven innings to defeat the Rays for his first win of the year.
Sabathia was cruising until the seventh, where he served up back-to-back homers to Logan Forsythe and Joey Butler.
"I felt pretty good today," Sabathia said. "I just wanted to stay aggressive."
His nine strikeouts was a season high.
"That's the story today: It was good to get CC his first win," Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez said. "I thought he did a lot of good things."
"Sabathia quieted us down basically until it was almost too late," Rays manager Kevin Cash said.
Sabathia's next start is set for Saturday in Kansas City.
Yankees pitching coach: Sabathia not pitching poorly
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is still yet to record a win this season, but pitching coach Larry Rothschild doesn't believe it has anything to do with his stuff, according to the New York Post.
"I'm sure he's never had to experience this," Rothschild said. "I don't think he's searching for anything. He's still throwing the ball well -- not as well as he'd like, but not as bad as it looks."
Sabathia has a 5.45 ERA and an 0-5 record to start the season.
"That's not reflective of how he's pitched," Rothschild said. "He had the one game [against the Mets] when he really didn't pitch well and wasn't feeling good. I think his numbers are a little bit skewed. He's pitched long enough to know to keep plugging away. Things can change quickly."
Yankees' CC Sabathia allows four runs in loss vs. Blue Jays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia took the loss Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on nine hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays.
Sabathia (0-5) was staked to a 1-0 lead after the first inning but let it slip away in the second, when he gave up a two-run single. He followed that up by allowing an RBI single in the fourth inning, while his final run surrendered came on a solo home run in the sixth.
Sabathia has posted a 5.45 ERA and 29:8 K:BB ratio in 38 innings while delivering just two quality starts in his six outings. He's scheduled to face the Rays Monday.
|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.
