CC Sabathia throws for the first time since knee surgery

9 Comments

Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia played catch this afternoon, throwing for the first time since undergoing knee surgery in mid-July.

Sabathia has now had a pair of stem cell treatments on his knee and is hoping to be healthy by spring training, but the 34-year-old former Cy Young winner is a major question mark at this point.

Before being shut down he posted a 5.28 ERA in 46 innings and dating back to last season Sabathia has a 4.87 ERA with 38 homers allowed in 40 starts. He’s owed $23 million in 2015, $25 million in 2016, and $25 million or a $5 million buyout for 2017.
