Yankees' CC Sabathia reports to spring training at 305 pounds
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia believes his weight loss in recent years had a bigger impact than he anticipated on his performance on the mound, according to the New York Daily News.

Sabathia trimmed his weight down and weight 275 pounds at the start of the 2014 season. He's now back up to 305 pounds, which is a weight Sabathia is happy to be at. When he won the Cy Young in 2007 with the Indians, Sabathia weighed over 300 pounds.

In 2013, Sabathia posted a 4.78 ERA in 32 games and in 2014. He managed a 5.28 ERA in just eight games, with his season cut short due to a knee injury that required surgery. Those numbers are far above his career ERA of 3.63.

Sabathia thinks adding the weight back on could help him get back to where he once was, even if his velocity isn't where it once was.

“I feel like this is a good weight,” Sabathia said. “I feel a little stronger. I feel my legs under me, being a lot stronger, and being able to push off the mound.”

Yankees' Sabathia still taking PRP shots to treat 'degenerative' knee
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia told reporters that he's still taking PRP injections to treat his "degenerative" knee condition, according to Newsday. Sabathia, who has received three shots leading into camp, revealed that his surgically-repaired knee feels good and that he's ready to do "everything," per MLB.com.

"It feels good," Sabathia said. "It's something that I'm excited about -- just playing catch, long-toss, everything. I'm able to go 100 percent and not feel anything."

Sabathia said that as long as he regularly ices his knee to keep the swelling down, he shouldn't need another injection until the end of the first half.

Sabathia, 34, pitched just 46 innings in 2014, posting a 3-4 record with 48 strikeouts. His season was cut short on May 10 in Milwaukee, and as a result, he opted for surgery in July. 

"Not being able to play last year, and performing horribly in 2013, I have a lot to prove," Sabathia said. "I have to try to help this staff and help this team get back to the playoffs."

Rothschild: Yankees pondering using a sixth starter in April and May
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Wednesday the team is considering using a sixth starter at times in April and May to help reduce a potential early strain on their rotation, per MLB.com. The Yankees have a stretch of 30 games in 31 days beginning April 17.

"It's a result of some of the stuff that's gone on over the last few years, not just here, but everywhere," Rothschild said. "We're aware of situations here and early in the season, we need to get these guys through these stretches. Being that possibly early in the spring, some of them aren't going to be able to throw a lot, we're going to need to build them up too and give them the extra days when we can."

CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi and Chris Capuano are expected to make up the team's five-man rotation. However, Tanaka, Sabathia and Pineda were all injured last season, as the Yankees used 13 starting pitchers.

Bryan MitchellEsmil RogersAdam Warren and Chase Whitley are some of the other pitchers that will be stretched out this spring.

"It'd be nice to go through a season with five starters, but there's a good chance we're not going to," Rothschild said. "There's a good chance every team in baseball won't, so it doesn't hurt to see who might fit in as a sixth starter."

Yankees' Rothschild not sure what to expect from Sabathia in '15
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia told ESPN on Monday that he wants to make 30 starts in 2015 after being limited to eight starts in 2014 due to a knee injury. However, Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild isn't ready to put any expectations on the veteran left-handed hurler, who is coming off July knee surgery.

“I really don’t know right now,” Rothschild said of what to expect from Sabathia, per the New York Post. “He’s coming off the knee [surgery], and that seems to be good. Throwing-wise, the arm is good, so it’s just hard to tell. I know he needs to pitch this spring. Even if it’s [simulated] games. He needs to be on the mound as much as we can do without pushing him into any kind of trauma.

“He hasn’t pitched much the last two years, so you’ve got to watch his arm, too. There’s a lot we have to pay attention to. He’s got… [to] know how his body feels.”

Yankees SP CC Sabathia looking to make 30 starts in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia hopes to make at least 30 starts in 2015 after being limited to eight starts in 2014 due to a right knee injury. He underwent season-ending surgery in July.

"That was the shortest year, having my year cut short by injury last year," Sabathia told ESPN. "Hopefully this year I can go out and try to make 30 starts and just be healthy and try to help the team win."
