CC Sabathia‘s road to recovery continues and he’s ready to face live hitters.
Sabathia threw a 36-pitch bullpen session today and said his knee feels strong. He’ll take the next step and fly out to Tampa to throw live batting practice on Tuesday while the Yankees are in Toronto. If all goes well, he could see himself in a game on Saturday. He doesn’t know when he’s going to return to the Yankees rotation, but he did say there was a huge difference in his knee from when he had the knee procedure to today.
