Yankees hope CC Sabathia can be asset for middle of the rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) While the Yankees are optimistic about starting pitcher CC Sabathia bouncing back from knee surgery, general manager Brian Cashman is also realistic about the expectations moving forward for the 34-year-old hurler.

"We look forward to him in spring training," Cashman told NBC New York, per NJ.com. "He's rehabbing right now. He had the knee surgery. I don't think the velocity is ever going to return, but I do think that you're going to see a guy that can pitch in the middle of our rotation and give us the innings that we obviously desperately need. So he'll be an asset, we hope, for us as we move forward. But until he's back there every five days, doing what we're used to seeing him do, there's a little bit of a question mark there."


Yankees' Sabathia confident he can return to being 200-inning pitcher


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia continues to deliver positive updates coming off July knee surgery.

"The knee, I have no complaints," Sabathia told YES Network. "I’m able to do all of my workouts. … I’m changing a few things. Not as much pounding and running. I’m in the pool a lot, on different machines to get cardio, (on the) bike. Just adding a few different things to get some cardio in."

Despite coming off surgery and being limited to eight starts (46 innings) in 2014, Sabathia feels he can get back to being a 30-start, 200-inning pitcher in 2015.

"Yeah, for sure," he said. "I feel like I can. If you asked me that a couple of months ago, I would have said, ‘I don’t know,’ but the way I’m feeling now and being able to work out, definitely."


Yankees clear four from 60-day disabled list


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2014) The Yankees have cleared CC Sabathia, Slade Heathcott, Ivan Nova and Martin Prado from the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Sabathia had knee surgery in July, but has been throwing since September. Nova had Tommy John surgery in April, and is in the process of recovery. Prado had an appendectomy in September. 


Yankees SP CC Sabathia nearly '100 percent'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia said Tuesday that he feels "pretty much back to 100 percent" and expects a full 200-inning workload in 2015, MLB.com reports.

"It's definitely a huge relief," Sabathia said. "I feel good enough to do all my workouts, to play catch and kind of have a normal offseason."

Sabathia, who underwent season-ending knee surgery in July, starting throwing off flat ground in late September and plans to report to spring training early.


CC Sabathia throwing for first the time since surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia threw for the first time since having knee surgery, ESPN New York reports Monday. Sabathia had season-ending surgery in late July before receiving a stem cell injection in early August. He should be fully recovered by spring training.

CC Sabathia has bone spur removed during surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia revealed Tuesday that he had a bone spur shaved off while undergoing surgery on his injured knee last week, MLB.com reports.

"[The bone spur] was something we didn't know," Sabathia said. "[Dr. Neal ElAttrache] got in there and saw it, and was able to shave that out of there. I think that was good -- having him go in there and at least get a scope in there and see what is going on, try and put a plan together going forward."

Sabathia is set to have a stem-cell injection in the knee, and he should have a normal rest period before beginning preparation for spring training. He will continue to have pain in the knee moving forward, as he has no cartilege remaining between the bones, but it's something he and the team will manage.


CC Sabathia's surgery goes 'as planned'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) The Yankees announced that pitcher CC Sabathia's knee surgery Wednesday went "as planned," reports the New York Daily News. The 34-year-old lefty aims to be back for the start of spring training.

CC Sabathia avoiding microfracture surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Though his season is over due to knee surgery, Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia actually avoided a worst-case scenario, after Dr. Neal ElAttrache confirmed he will avoid a microfracture surgery. 

"He feels good about it and I do, too," Sabathia told MLB.com Saturday. "[NBA star] Russell Westbrook had the same surgery and was able to come back and be fine. Obviously, you have to deal with a little bit of swelling here and there, but that's something I have to deal with.

Sabathia will instead undergo and athroscopic debridement procedure in his right knee to clear out damage. He is aiming to be back by the start of spring training, after tossing a career-low 46 innings this season, with a 5.28 ERA.

Sabathia did note that the surgery he has opted for could leave him vulnerable to further issues down the road, but allows the straightest path to pitching again. He will be able to resume physical activities in six to eight weeks.

"It's something that I'm going to have to deal with probably for the rest of my life and eventually have a big surgery," Sabathia said. "Right now, the goal is to keep playing and this is the easiest way to do it."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

CC Sabathia to undergo knee examination Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is scheduled to have his injured right knee examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache Friday, the New York Post reports.

Sabathia cancelled his appointment with Dr. James Andrews, which was scheduled for Monday, and he's expected to receive opinions from Dr. ElAttrache and one other specialist. Manager Joe Girardi said earlier this month that Sabathia is likely done for the remainder of the season, but the pitcher has yet to be officially ruled out.

(7/11/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has cancelled his appointment with Dr. James Andrews, which was originally scheduled for Monday, MLB.com reports.

CC Sabathia to see Dr. James Andrews about knee


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia might require knee surgery that could end his season, but that will not be known until he meets with a specialist.

Sabathia is set to meet with Dr. James Andrews July 14 to determine the best course of action according to MLB.com, leaving his status moving forward in limbo for more than a week. Stanton suffered a setback with his right knee following a rehab start Wednesday, and manager Joe Girardi told MLB.com it is "probably fair to say" Sabathia could miss the rest of the season. Sabathia may even require microfracture surgery on the knee.

"That's always a possibility when you have a degenerative knee," Girardi said. "That could be one of the steps. That's a surgery that a lot of players don't want to hear that they need to have. It's a pretty long rehab."


Manager: CC Sabathia likely done for year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Joe Girardi admitted that Yankees veteran left-hander CC Sabathia is probably out for the season. Asked if that can be assumed if Sabathia is indeed destined for microfracture surgery on his knee, Girardi answered in the affirmative.

Sabathia has not pitched since May 10 and it is now feared that his career could be over.


Report: CC Sabathia could need microfracture surgery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Sabathia has been sidelined since May 10 with inflammation that has not subsided. His timetable for a return, even without surgery, remains unknown.


CC Sabathia to meet with Dr. James Andrews next week


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia will be shut down for at least a week in order to meet with Dr. James Andrews to determine how to proceed with his injured knee, the Star-Ledger reports.

An MRI on the knee Thursday revealed about the same level of swelling in the knee as it had when he was placed on the disabled list on May 11, which has the team concerned. Sabathia told the Yankees Thursday morning that his knee was swollen after making his second rehab start the previous night. He remains without a timetable for return until at least he has a chance to consult with Dr. Andrews.


CC Sabathia shut down indefinitely with inflammation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has been shut down indefinitely with inflammation in his injured knee, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

"We're waiting to see what the next step is," manager Joe Girardi said. "Can't tell you how long he's going to be shut down. He said nothing during the game about it, he woke up today, and that's the report I got. Today it was swollen, similar to what he's experienced before."

Sabathia experienced swelling in the knee Thursday morning after making his second rehab start Wednesday. He received another MRI on the knee Thursday, but the results have yet to be released. The team won't have an updated timetable until that happens.


CC Sabathia undergoes another MRI on knee


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has undergone another MRI on his injured knee after experiencing some swelling Thursday morning, the New York Daily News reports.

Sabathia has made two rehab starts as he attempts to return from the injury, with the most recent coming Wednesday, and it's possible the test will reveal that he's had a setback. He has been sidelined since May 10 with the injury.


CC Sabathia hit hard in second rehab start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia (knee) struggled in his first rehab start at Double-A Trenton, as he lasted just three-plus innings Wednesday.

Sabathia was limited to 55 pitched in his second rehab appearance in all, and he lasted just 3 2/3 innings as a result. He allowed five runs -- three earned -- on five hits and a walk, while hitting one batter and striking out two.

CC Sabathia now starting Wednesday in Double-A


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) The Yankees have moved CC Sabathia's second rehab outing up one day, as he continues to work his way back from a knee injury.

Sabathia will now take the mound for Double-A Trenton Wednesday, rather than Thursday. Manager Joe Girardi told MLB.com the decision was made as a result of Sabathia's light workload in his rehab debut.

"We drew out a schedule, talked about the days that he could possibly pitch, and because he didn't throw a ton of pitches the other day we could move him up a day, and we'll do that," Girardi said. "And then after that it'll be every five days."

Sabathia has been out since May 11, and will likely throw about 50 pitches Wednesday. He will likely need two or three more outings after that to get his pitch count up.
