Report: CC Sabathia Likely Only To Miss One Start

August 17, 2018 - 4:31 pm


CC Sabathia went to the 10-day DL on Monday with right knee inflammation. WFAN's Sweeny Murti is reporting that Sabathia threw a bullpen session Friday and his knee feels good, and he should only miss one turn in the rotation. 

“I think it’s only going to be one start. I told (manager Aaron Boone) I probably could have made my next start and pushed through, but the next one I probably would have been down, so I’m just trying to listen to my body and listen to my knee this time. Not try to push it at a time when I really don’t need to," said Sabathia.

Luis Cessa started Wednesday and pitched poorly. Sabathia should make a return to the rotation sometime next week. The Yankees will gladly have him and his 7-4 record and 3.32 ERA back in the rotation.
