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.
