Sabathia throws off the mound

  •  

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia has thrown off a mound for the first time since having had arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow last October.

The left-hander threw 29 pitches during the session on Saturday and said he felt good.

Sabathia had two trips to the disabled list last year - a strained left groin that kept him out from June 24 to July 17 and an inflamed left elbow that sidelined him from Aug. 8-24. The 32-year-old left-hander was 15-6 during the season last year and 2-1 in three playoff starts.

Also, closer Mariano Rivera, who had surgery last June 12 to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, had his second spring training bullpen session. Both are expected to ready for opening day.
