Yankees Injury Update: CC Sabathia plays catch for first time since surgery

By on 9/24/2014 06:00:00 AM

The New York Yankees entered Tuesday night's game with a record of 81-75, second in the American League East. The Yankees have struggled offensively, ranked 23rd in runs scored. A pitching staff with a respectable ERA of 3.69 have kept the Yankees slim playoff hopes alive. On the injury front, CC Sabathia, who has been out most of the season, played catch for the first time since knee surgery.

Sabathia, who has been on the disabled list since May 11, had season-ending knee surgery on July 23 to clean out inflammation and swelling in his right knee. Sabathia was fortunate that he did not need microfracture surgery, which most likely would have ended his career.

Stephen C. Lorenzo, who covers the Yankees for the NY Daily News, tweeted the following update on Sabathia,
Sabathia, in his 14th Major League season, finished 2014 with a record of 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA in eight starts.  The six-time All Star and 2007 American League Cy Young Award winner, has pitched for the Indians, Brewers and Yankees. Sabathia has a career record of 208-119 with an ERA of 3.63.
