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. 

Sabathia went six innings - tying the longest start he's made since May 16 - and allowed three earned runs on five hits. More impressively, Sabathia struck out seven while walking none, the second straight start in which he did not issue a free pass. 

Sabathia remains at 3-7 on the year, though he did lower his ERA to 5.31. 


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


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia labored in a no-decision on Saturday against the Orioles. Sabathia needed 93 pitches to get through five innings. 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.


Yankees' Girardi expecting to change rotation plans for O's series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) The Yankees current rotation alignment for a weekend series at Baltimore is Michael Pineda on Friday, Adam Warren on Saturday and CC Sabathia on Sunday. However, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that will probably change, per The Journal News

Although, Girardi did not indicate what the changes might be.


Yankees P CC Sabathia ejected after arguing balls and strikes


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia was ejected from Sunday's game in the middle of the sixth inning against the Angels.

Sabathia looked to be arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Dan Bellino before getting tossed. Yankees manager Joe Girardi then came onto the field to argue and he was tossed from the game too. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, Sabathia had to be physically restrained from Bellino

Sabathia's day ends with two earned runs allowed on five hits. He struck out seven batters and walked one on 87 pitches. Sabathia now has a 5.25 ERA this season. 


Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia settles with no-decision vs. Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia turned in a dominant outing, but was outdueled by rookie Mike Montgomery and settled for a no-decision against Seattle on Tuesday.

Sabathia surrendered a run-scoring single to Nelson Cruz in the third and a run-scoring double to Austin Jackson in the sixth for his only blemishes of the evening. He permitted two earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings of work. Of his 94 pitches, 62 were strikes.

Sabathia has allowed seven earned runs over his last two starts (11 2/3 innings). He owns a 5.45 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP over 66 innings pitched this season. His next start will come Tuesday at home against the Nationals.


Yankees' CC Sabathia surrenders four runs in loss vs. A's


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia took the loss on Thursday, giving up four earned runs on eight hits and one walk in six-plus innings while striking out four in his team's 5-4 defeat against the A's.

Sabathia (2-7) cruised through four scoreless innings before serving up a solo home run in the fifth. He followed that by allowing a two-run homer in the next inning, and was pulled in the seventh after surrendering a single and a walk to open the frame. Two runs would score in the inning, with one being charged to the starter.

Sabathia owns a 5.67 ERA and 51:12 K:BB ratio in 60 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Mariners in Seattle on Tuesday.


Yankees SP CC Sabathia clobbered Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) 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
(5/16/2015) 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
(5/11/2015) 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
(5/10/2015) 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
(5/6/2015) 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.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/1/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia pitched six strong innings Friday, allowing two runs on seven hits for a no-decision against the Red Sox.

Yankees GM on Sabathia: 'Overall, his performance has been pretty good'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia is 0-4 with a 5.96 ERA heading into his fifth start of the season Friday against the Red Sox.

The veteran lefty particularly had a rough outing in his last start against the Mets, allowing seven runs in five innings, but general manager Brian Cashman is optimistic it was a one-game setback for Sabathia.

“He’s 0-4, but those other three games we lost for other reasons besides him,’’ Cashman told the New York Post. “Overall, his performance has been pretty good. Obviously, the last one wasn’t, but hopefully has a bounce-back start.”


Yankees starter CC Sabathia allows seven runs, falls to 0-4 on Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/25/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia (0-4) gave up seven runs on nine hits in five innings on Saturday to suffer the loss against the Mets.

Sabathia was tagged for three home runs in the contest, including the first career long ball from Mets propsect and 2012 first-round draft pick Kevin Plawecki.

"It sucks. I just want to try to help the team win and I haven't been able to do that my three of four times out," Sabathia said. "This one stings a little more because I didn't give us a chance at all."

Sabathia was in control until a four-run fourth inning for the Mets broke open the game.

"I was getting ahead but just not with quality pitches," Sabathia said.

It's the first time in his career that Sabathia's started a season 0-4.

Sabathia's next start is scheduled for Friday in Boston.


Yankees' CC Sabathia takes hard-luck loss, falls to 0-3 on Monday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia (0-3) allowed two runs on seven hits in eight innings on Monday but was outdueled by the Tigers' Alfredo Simon and was stuck with the loss. 

Sabathia, who faced the minimum through six innings, carried a shutout into the seventh but gave up RBI singles to J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes in the frame.

"It's frustrating," Sabathia said after the game, per MLB.com. "Especially with a 1-0, tight game, you kind of want to shut it down and get us back in the dugout."

Sabathia struck out five and remains winless on the season. 

Sabathia gets credit for a complete game (38th for career) in the loss, the first in the American League this season.

"CC pitched great," Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury said. "We played great defense behind him. He pitched tremendous. It would have been nice to get this win, but he looked great out there."

He'll look again for his first win of 2015 Saturday at home against the Mets.


Yankees encouraged by CC Sabathia despite rough start


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia has struggled in his first two starts of the season. 

Sabathia is 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA, but despite the results, the Yankees are encouraged by what they've seen. 

"The amount of ground balls that he’s getting, the amount of strikeouts that he’s getting," manager Joe Girardi said, per the Journal News. "They have not centered him up a whole lot during the course of his first two starts. I think it’s really important against a lineup like this because they have the ability to hit the ball out of the ballpark."


CC Sabathia drops second straight for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Yankees starter CC Sabathia lost his second straight start, Tuesday against the Orioles. 

Sabathia gave up four runs in seven innings. He allowed seven hits, including a home run, and walked one, while striking out seven. 

Sabathia threw 91 pitches, 63 for strikes, and finished the game with a 5.68 ERA. 

"I was commanding the ball pretty good," Sabathia said, per the New York Times. "I just need to tighten up a few things, especially late in the game."

Sabathia next pitches on Monday against Detroit and Alfredo Simon. 


Yankees' CC Sabathia struggles, loses season debut versus Jays


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia lost his season debut on Thursday by a score of 6-3 to the Blue Jays.

Sabathia allowed five runs, four earned, on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings pitched. He was able to strike out eight without walking a single batter. Additionally, he left the game without having any issues with his right knee.

“One bad inning got away from us,” Sabathia said regarding a second inning where he gave up three earned runs. “I wish I could have stopped the bleeding there, reports the New York Post.”

At one point Sabathia had retired eight consecutive batters heading into the fifth inning, striking out seven.

“It was something to build on,” Sabathia said. “No walks. Not a lot of good contact. We threw the ball pretty good. It was just bad luck.”

Sabathia will look to gain his first victory of the year in his next start against the Orioles in Baltimore.
