In my post about CC Sabathia‘s first rehab start, I speculated Sabathia could of had his next start on Thursday for Double-A Trenton due to the Thunder promoting tickets for that specific game. In a media session today, Brian Cashman confirmed my speculation: Sabathia will make his next start on Thursday with Double-A Trenton to stay closer to the New York Yankees.
Cashman said Sabathia will throw 50 pitches in this rehab start. In Sabathia’s first start, he gave up two runs on three hits in 2.1 innings. If all goes well with this start, Sabathia could possibly throw 70 pitches in his next rehab start, but that’s just logical speculation. Sabathia is still on track to return by July 27th.
