Yankees SP CC Sabathia rules out surgery, could see bullpen role


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/25/2015) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia will not need surgery on his right knee, according to The New York Post.

“It went good — no surgery,’’ said Sabathia, who hopes rest will allow him to return to the Yankees this season. “I will start the rehab process, and I feel like if I get enough rest I can come back and be healthy enough to pitch.’’

Sabathia saw a doctor on Tuesday and his diagnosis was good enough that he felt encouraged to maybe see the mound again this season.

“I feel like maybe after the 15 days, as long as I keep my arm sharp throwing in the chair like I did last year. We will wait and see what the Yankees have planned,’’ Sabathia said. “I was happy it was good news and not whatever else. I didn’t know what the diagnosis was going to be or what Dr. Allen would say. It was good to hear him say the same thing that [the Yankees’] Dr. [Chris] Ahmad said.’’

The Yankees, who instituted a six-man rotation before Sabathia went down, could opt to use the 35-year-old in the bullpen once he's healthy, something Sabathia says he would welcome.

“Helping this team anyway I can is what I am here to do,’’ Sabathia said. “If that means pitching out of the bullpen, it is what it is. I am not here to make that decision, that’s not for me to make. If I am healthy I know I can start on any team.’’


Yankees SP CC Sabathia on DL; may be done for season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2015) Yankees veteran left-hander CC Sabathia might not just be out for just 15 days after his placement on the disabled list Monday with knee inflammation. He could be done for the season.

"It's a possibility," Joe Girardi conceded to ESPN.

Sabathia has struggled through the worst season of his career. He compiled a 4-9 record and 5.27 ERA before leaving his Sunday start against Cleveland in the third inning. He suffers from a degenerative condision in his knee that nearly resulted in career-ending surgery a year ago.


GM: Yankees SP CC Sabathia (knee) destined for DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman expects veteran left-hander CC Sabathia to be placed on the disabled list after leaving his start Sunday with a knee injury, ESPN has reported.

"I'm guessing it's a DL off the bat just because he walked off the field without even throwing another poitch," Cashman said. "That seems to imply that it's something serious and CC's tough. He's been pitching through a lot of stuff over a number of years, so I'm just assuming we're looking at a disabled list instead of having him here for another start."

Sabathia, who has had problems with the knee this season but has not been on the DL, was removed in the third inning after taking a pounding by Cleveland that lifted his ERA on the year to 5.27.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Sabathia is not hurt. The move was made to push back the rotation and give everyone extra rest during this stretch of 16 games in 16 days.

Mitchell hasn't pitched since Aug. 11. He has been inconsistent since his last promotion on July 30 and owns a 3.72 ERA on the year with 20 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings.


Yankees SP CC Sabathia pitches well, but absorbs loss


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Sabathia allowed nine hits and two runs in his six innings, tying a season-high by throwing 110 pitches. He kept the ball down, registering 12 ground-ball outs, while striking out two and walking a pair. 

Over his last 10 starts, Sabathia is 1-2 with seven no-decisions, alternating several good starts with shaky ones, as his ERA has fluctured around the 5.00 mark for each of the last three months.


Yankees' CC Sabathia allows one run, gets no-decision Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/6/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia was solid in his outing against the Red Sox on Thursday. The big left-hander went six innings, allowing just one run on three hits. He walked three and struckout eight, but did not factor in the decision.

Sabathia was given a 1-0 lead in the third inning, but he allowed the tying run to score in the fifth. He left the game with the scored tied 1-1, but the Yankees pushed ahead the winning run in the seventh, earning the 2-1 win.

Sabathia was in need of a quality start like this. He came into the game having given up five earned runs in each of his previous two outings. The strong performance on Thursday knocked his ERA down 20 points to 5.34 on the year.


Yankees' CC Sabathia gives up three home runs in no-decision


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia struggled in his outing against the Rangers on Thursday. The big left-hander allowed five runs on nine hits over five innings. He walked one and struck out three, needing 80 pitches to get through five. He was left with a no-decision however, as he left the game with the score tied 5-5. The Rangers would win the game 7-6.

Sabathia was bitten by the longball in this one, as all five runs he allowed came on homers. Josh Hamilton's was the biggest blow, a three run shot in the very first inning. Shin-Soo Choo followed with a solo blast in the second, and then Ryan Rua knocked an inside-the-park home run in the fourth.

Sabathia has had a rough go of it so far in 2015. Over his last seven starts, the veteran is 1-1 with a 6.09 ERA. He has allowed nine home runs over that stretch as well. 

After his start, Sabathia went to a local hospital dealing with symptoms of dehydration. He is not expected to travel with the team to Chicago on Friday.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Yankees SP CC Sabathia does enough to get win Wednesday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/8/2015) 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
(7/3/2015) 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."


Cashman: CC Sabathia to remain in rotation for foreseeable future


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reiterated Tuesday the team has no intentions of removing veteran starting pitcher CC Sabathia from the rotation.

"That's not something that we're considering at this moment," Cashman told ESPNNewYork.com. "We're going to continue to give him every opportunity to work through this for the foreseeable future."

Sabathia dropped another game Monday against the Angels to fall to 3-8 through 16 starts. He has a 5.59 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, and he has allowed 19 home runs in 95 innings.

"The home runs are a big issue," Cashman said. "That's something that's new for him, in the last couple of years. If they're solo shots, they're not as painful.

"He's still competing and finding himself. I think early on he had not the best of luck or run support."


Yankees SP CC Sabathia allows four runs in Monday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia produced a solid outing Monday, but it was not enough as the Yankees lost 4-1 to the Angels. Sabathia allowed four runs on six hits over 7 1/3 innings of work. 

The long ball was not kind to Sabathia on Monday. He gave up a solo home run to Mike Trout in the third inning and another solo shot to C.J. Cron in the seventh inning. He also struck out five and walked one during the outing. He is now 3-8 with a 5.59 ERA on the season.

Sabathia is now winless in his last four starts and he has just one quality start over those starts. He has not pitched more than six innings in seven of his last eight starts.


Yankees' Girardi waiting until next off-day to finalize five-man rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said following Thursday's game against the Astros a final decision on who will be removed from the rotation won't be made until the team's next off-day Thursday, according to MLB.com.

With Ivan Nova returning from the disabled list, the Yankees have gone to a six-man rotation for the time being. Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia appear to have rotations spots secured, leaving Nova, Nathan Eovaldi and Adam Warren fighting for the final two spots.

Although, all signs seem to point to Adam Warren moving to the bullpen since he's had success in a relief role at the major-league level.

"He's pitched as well as anyone in our rotation," Girardi said before Thursday's game. "As I've said, we don't need to make a decision right now. I'm not worried about making a decision right now. I know there's a lot of people around here who want me to make a decision right now, but that's not going to happen.

"There are a lot of things that can happen between now and when we get back from Anaheim. There just is. Let's just see how guys are doing and we'll make a decision."


CC Sabathia gives up six in no-decision for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia gave up six runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against Philadelphia on Tuesday. 

Sabathia last gave up six runs on May 23. He walked two, struck out four and gave up two home runs. 

Sabathia's next start is Monday at the Angels. Manager Joe Girardi said that Sabathia will remain in the rotation, per the New York Post

"He's a starter for us. That's what he is," Girardi said, per MLB.com. "That's what we're paying him to do, and that's what he's going to do."


Yankees to use six-man rotation for one turn with Nova coming off DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced Monday that Ivan Nova (elbow) will be joining the rotation Wednesday against the Phillies, which means New York will go to a six-man rotation for at least one turn.

“The one thing that we have after this long streak is we have some off days (in early July),” Girardi said, per The Journal News. “I wouldn’t anticipate us doing it after we get home from Anaheim.”

Nova's activation off the disabled list means everyone will also get pushed back a day in the rotation. Adam Warren, who was supposed to start Wednesday, will now open up a four-game series at Houston on Thursday. He will be followed by Nathan Eovaldi, Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda, who is starting Monday vs. Philadelphia.

Nova's return also means CC Sabathia, who starts Tuesday, will get bumped from the Houston series and start next Monday against the Angels.


Yankees CC Sabathia solid, but earns no-decision


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/18/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia had one of his better outings on the season, but took his second consecutive no decision as New York scored late to defeat the Marlins on Thursday.

Yankees' CC Sabathia gives up four runs in no-decision Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

He allowed four runs on eight hits, while striking out three and walking none. All four runs given up by Sabathia came on a pair of two-run home runs.

Staked to an early 2-0 lead, Sabathia gave up a game-tying blast to Nolan Reimold in the third inning. Then Manny Machado unloaded another two-run shot in the fifth inning to take the lead.

But the Yankees offense was able to come back briefly, but enough to get Sabathia off the hook.

Sabathia now sports a 5.38 ERA, as he heads into his next start on Thursday at home against the Marlins.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
