CC Sabathia serves up two homers in loss to Red Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia took another step back, as he served up a pair of home runs and was pegged with his second loss of the season Friday night against Boston.

Sabathia (1-2) surrendered a solo home run to Jonny Gomes and a three-run shot to Grady Sizemore in the sixth inning for his only damage of the night. He was charged with four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven innings pitched.

Sabathia has allowed four-plus runs in each of his first three starts. He is expected to make his next start Thursday against the Rays in Tampa.

CC Sabathia rebounds from horrible debut to earn first win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia rebounded from a horrible season debut to pick up his first win during a 6-4 victory Sunday at Toronto. Although, Sabathia still was hardly far from flawless Sunday.

The left-handed hurler was charged with four runs on seven hits in six innings. He struck out six.

Sabathia (1-1) pitched well for most of the afternoon. He gave up a leadoff home run to Melky Cabrera in the bottom of the first, but he kept Toronto off the scoreboard again until running into some trouble in the sixth inning. With two outs, Sabathia allowed an RBI double to Dioner Navarro and a two-RBI single to Erik Kratz before working out of the jam.

The veteran lefty, who has a 7.50 ERA through two starts, is expected to make his next start Friday against the Red Sox. Sabathia was 2-2 with a 7.22 ERA in five starts against Boston last season.


CC Sabathia surrenders six runs in season debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia gave up six earned runs on eight hits and one walk in six innings while striking out six and serving up two home runs in his team's 6-2 loss to the Astros in Tuesday's opener.

Sabathia gave up four runs in the first inning and two in the second but settled down the rest of the way. However, the damage was already done, as the Yankee offense had problems scoring off Astros starter Scott Feldman. Sabathia brings an 0-1 record into Sunday's matchup with the Blue Jays.


CC Sabathia completes spring with scoreless outing


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia finished spring with a scoreless outing against the Pirates Thursday.

Sabathia tossed four innings, giving up three hits. He did not record any strikeouts, and did not issue any walks. Sabathia was expected to throw between 45 and 50 pitches, which is why he was pulled after just four innings. He's expected to be the team's opening day starter.


CC Sabathia expected to throw 45-50 pitches in final start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is expected to throw between 45 and 50 pitches during his last spring start Thursday, according to ESPN.

That doesn't seem like a lot considering it's Sabathia last start before the regular season. At the same time, Sabathia has always been able to handle large workloads. Sabathia may not be pushed past 100 pitches in his first start, but will likely ramp up to speed shortly after the start of the year. He'll take on the Pirates Thursday.


Yankees line up rotation plans for start of season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said his rotation plans for the season-opening series at Houston will be CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda and Ivan Nova. Girardi said Masahiro Tanaka will start the fourth game of the season at Toronto.

As for the team's fifth starter, Girardi said he has made his decision, but he wants to let the players know first before he announces it to the media. Michael Pineda and David Phelps have been the two top candidates this spring for the final spot in the rotation.


CC Sabathia tosses seven scoreless innings vs. Pirates


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia allowed four hits and one walk in seven scoreless innings while striking out seven in Friday's 4-0 win over the Pirates.

Aside from giving up three runs on March 11, Sabathia has been outstanding this spring. He owns a 1.59 ERA and 16:3 K:BB ratio in 17 innings.


CC Sabathia perfect over five innings Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) Yankees starter CC Sabathia tossed five perfect innings Sunday against the Marlins.

Sabathia gave up a line drive out to Giancarlo Stanton, but was otherwise untouched. Adeiny Hechavarria actually did reach against Sabathia, but it was due to an error. Sabathia managed to strike out five hitters during the start. He posted a 4.78 ERA in 211 innings last year.


Yankees president not worried about CC Sabathia


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia is off to a slow start this spring, going 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through two starts. Despite the high ERA and WHIP, another concern is Sabathia hasn't exceeded 90 mph much during the exhibition schedule, per The Star-Ledger.

Although Sabathia's struggles are following a drop in velocity last season, Yankees president Randy Levine is not worried about the veteran left-handed hurler.

"CC Sabathia is great," Levine said. "I saw him (Friday) night and he said he’s feeling as healthy as he’s ever felt. He’s an All-Star and he knows how to use spring training to get ready. I think he’ll be fine. He actually looks great and he said he felt great."


CC Sabathia surrenders three runs vs. Nationals Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia gave up three earned runs on four hits and two walks in three innings while striking out three in his team's 3-2 loss to the Nationals Tuesday.

Sabathia threw two scoreless innings in his debut on March 1 but was knocked around a bit in this one, thanks in part to walking the leadoff batters of each of the first two innings, with both coming around to score.

Sabathia is no stranger to slow Marchs, however, as he's posted a 5.00 ERA or worse in three of the last four exhibition seasons. He's looking for a rebound season after posting a career-worst 4.78 ERA in 2013.


CC Sabathia learning a cutter


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Yankees starter CC Sabathia is working on a cutter during his spring bullpen sessions, according to Newsday. 

Sabathia is learning the pitch from former Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte. Sabathia said he had success throwing the cutter Thursday, and added that he's anxious to use it in a game. Sabathia believes adding a cutter will help him succeed despite his diminishing velocity. 

Sabathia posted a 4.78 ERA in 211 innings last year.


CC Sabathia goes for two scoreless in debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Despite reportedly topping out around 88 miles-per-hour with his fastball, Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia had little trouble with the Phillies in his spring debut Saturday.

The newly svelte lefty pitched a pair of scoreless innings to open his exhibition schedule. He allowed a pair of singles, but stranded both runners while striking out one batters.

Sabathia had his first off season in years in 2013, posting a 4.78 ERA that represents his worst mark his 2005. The weight loss program he underwent in the offseason was done with the intention of recovering some of his lost velocity. 


CC Sabathia: Masahiro Tanaka 'filthy'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) A pitcher who followed CC Sabathia to the mound for the Yankees on Saturday particularly impressed him, per Newsday. That pitcher was newcomer Masahiro Tanaka, whose stuff Sabathia called "filthy" and whose split-finger he referred to as "dirty."

Sabathia does not necessarily believe Tanaka's overall stuff was better than his split finger despite the fact that filthy is dirtier than dirty.


Report: C.C. Sabathia fastball not too fast against Phillies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) The fastball of Yankees veteran southpaw CC Sabathia topped out at just 88 mph in the first inning of the game Saturday against Philadelphia, per NewJersey.com.

It is feared that both age and the massive loss of weight could take a toll on his velocity. The 33-year-old Sabathia lost a few miles an hour off his fastball last season, which he finished with a career-worst 4.78 ERA and 14 wins, his lowest total since 2006.


Yankees studs to throw Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Yankees pitchers CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka and Hiroki Kuroda will throw their first innings of spring training Saturday. 

Each pitcher will toss two innings, and will be capped at 35 pitches a piece. It will mark the first time Tanaka has pitched in a game since joining MLB. The Yankees will be taking on the Phillies.

Sabathia, who showed up to camp in much better shape, posted a 4.78 ERA in 211 innings last year.


CC Sabathia comes into camp at 275 pounds


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia came into camp a little lighter than normal, according to ESPN.

Sabathia's weight is down to 275, which is the lowest it has been since he was in Cleveland. Sabathia said he weighed 315 pounds two years ago, so the weight loss is significant. He added that he felt he lost some power last season, but feels stronger now.

Sabathia posted a 4.78 ERA in 211 innings last season.


Manager remains confident CC Sabathia will bounce back


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) Yankees manager Joe Girardi continues to exude confidence starting pitcher CC Sabathia will bounce back after having one of the worst seasons of his career in 2013.

"I think CC will come in and have a much better year this year," Girardi told the New York Post. "I think it’s a year where he’s been able to physically do the things that he needs to do in the offseason, and he has not been rehabbing, and I think that’s important. I think he’ll have a much better year."


CC Sabathia feeling 'pretty good' after bulking up


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia said losing 30 pounds during the offseason last year affected his pitching, so the goal this offseason was to add muscle, according to the New York Post. Sabathia had arguably one of the worst seasons of his career in 2013, going 14-13 with a 4.78 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.

"Last year, I lost a lot of weight, so I kind of lost a little bit of power," Sabathia said. "This year it’s all been strength building and worrying about getting better and stronger, so I feel pretty good."


CC Sabathia getting great results from conditioning program


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) A photo of Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia was recently posted on Instagram showing a noticeably slimmer Sabathia. However, Sabathia's trainer -- T.J. Lopez -- told The New York Post that the veteran left-handed pitcher hasn't lost any weight this offseason.

"He’s staying right around 270 or 275 [pounds], and that’s what he was this regular season," Lopez said. "But this offseason we really focused on putting on muscle, doing it the right way, focus on his diet, more protein in his diet. He obviously looks great, and hopefully it shows on the field."

Sabathia's 2013 season ended early because of a strained left hamstring, but it allowed him to get a jump on his offseason conditioning. Sabathia is determined to bounce back in 2014 after losing 13 games and posting a 4.78 ERA last season, which were both career worsts.

"Having the year he had last year, he’s coming back really with a vengeance and he wants to prove something now, that he can do it," Lopez said. "He’s been going full speed since before Halloween. This year he’s going to go into spring training in the best shape of his life. Not only with the [offseason] weight off -- because that was a big thing, in the past we were always worried about getting the weight off, and that was the Yankees’ No. 1 concern so it was my No. 1 concern and so it was his."


CC Sabathia joins Roc Nation


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has joined Jay-Z's agency, Roc Nation.

Sabathia joins his former teammate Robinson Cano, who also signed with Jay-Z recently. Sabathia is not set to be a free-agent until after the 2016 season at the earliest. He had been represented by the Legacy Agency prior to joining Roc Nation.


Manager expecting a 'really good' year from CC Sabathia


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said starting pitcher CC Sabathia has reported no setbacks this offseason, according to The Journal News. Sabathia finished the 2013 season on the disabled list because of a hamstring strain.

Sabathia won 14 games in '13, but his ERA rose to 4.78, which was a career worst for the veteran left-hander. But Girardi feels Sabathia will be in for a bounce-back season in 2014.

"I think we we’ll see a really good CC this year," Girardi said.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Sabathia missed the final week of the season with a hamstring strain and will, of course, be ready for spring training. Teixeira played in just 15 games this season due to a wrist injury that required surgery. He should be fine for the spring. Nix missed the final six weeks due to a fractured left hand.
