CC Sabathia Injury Update: Yankees Ace Will Pitch Friday

New York Yankees left-handed pitcher CC Sabathia has stated that he will be pitching against the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. Sabathia was placed on the disabled list with stiffness in his left elbow back on Aug. 11.

After pitching in two bullpen sessions over a four-day span, the staff ace feels confident about his return.

Via The New York Daily News:

"It's a big relief that I can go out and throw all my pitches, not be hindered by anything or feel like I can't throw this pitch because it might hurt," Sabathia said. "I have none of that and today just confirmed that. I feel good about going out there on Friday."

Manager Joe Girardi confirmed Wednesday that Sabathia will start Friday against the Cleveland Indians.

CC Sabathia Injury: Yankees Pitcher Lands On 15-Day DL With Elbow Stiffness

CC Sabathia is headed to the 15-day disabled list due to stiffness and inflammation in his left elbow, according to reports. The New York Yankees initially called the injury "a low-level concern," but now it appears that the issue is a bit more serious. Manager Joe Girardi called the measure "preventive," but he appeared concerned nonetheless.

"If it's September I'm not sure, if it's October, I'm not sure what we do here," Girardi said. "I think he makes his start. But the fact that it came back is a little concerning, and we want to wipe it out."

Sabathia missed three weeks earlier this season with a groin injury. His latest issue cropped up on Aug. 3 against the Seattle Mariners. An MRI after the game revealed no structural damage, but the stiffness returned Wednesday against the Detroit Tigers. Sabathia is 12-3 this season with a 3.56 ERA.
