Sabathia reported his knee is "good, no problem at all" following offseason arthroscopic surgery in his right knee, George A. King of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The procedure was described as routine and minor in nature, so it appears the 36-year-old lefty is on schedule to move forward without any further restrictions. He'll pitch in two simulated games as part of his normal spring program before making an appearance in an exhibition game, as the veteran will look to build on last season's bounce-back campaign that featured his best ERA (3.91) since 2012 and a return to the 90 mph plateau on his fastball.

Sabathia (knee) has played catch at spring training, Matt Rourke of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia started a throwing program at the beginning of December, but there wasn't any word regarding the extent of said workouts heading into the Yankees' first day of spring training Tuesday. Fortunately, the 36-year-old is still expected to be in full health and take on the second or third spot in the rotation once the regular season rolls around.

Sabathia said Friday that his recovery from knee surgery is going well and he will begin a throwing program next week, the Boston Herald's Evan Drellich reports.

EDGE Analysis

He underwent a routine cleanup of his knee after the season, and is not expected to be limited heading into spring training. Sabathia is coming off his best year since 2012, as he managed a 3.91 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. However, his 4.28 FIP and 152:65 K:BB in 179.2 innings suggest he may be due for a bit of regression in 2017. His spot in the Yankees' rotation is safe heading into the final year of his contract.

The Yankees announced that Sabathia underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery for a routine cleanup Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was not dealing with any sort of serious knee injury, but with a few months to recover during the offseason, it was determined that he would go under the knife in order to fix whatever damage he was dealing with. The Yankees did not reveal how long Sabathia will need to recover from Tuesday's procedure, but the team does expect him to be ready for the beginning of spring training.

Sabathia will have a "routine cleanup" of his right knee this month but it will not affect his status for the 2017 season, the Bergen Record's Pete Caldera reports.

EDGE Analysis

He is coming off his best season since 2012, logging a 3.91 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 152 strikeouts in 179.2 innings. Those aren't exciting numbers, and his 4.28 FIP suggests it might not be completely sustainable, but at least he's back on the radar as a late-round innings eater heading into 2017.

Sabathia (9-12) allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out eight over 7.1 innings in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia threw a gem in his final start of the year, lasting a season-high 7.2 innings while dominating a dangerous Red Sox lineup. He won't get a chance to pitch in the postseason, as the Yankees were eliminated from playoff contention despite the victory. A strong finish helped the 36-year-old lefty lower his ERA to below 4.00 for the first time since 2012.

Sabathia fired seven innings of scoreless, four-hit ball in a Saturday no-decision versus the Blue Jays. He walked three and also recorded a pair of strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

The ageless southpaw was outstanding while shutting down one of the most potent lineups in baseball. Sabathia has now posted scoreless performances in two of his last three trips to the mound, but now has four straight no-decisions overall. He'll face off with the Red Sox next Thursday in his final start of the regular season.

Sabathia took a no-decision after allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks with five strikeouts in five-plus innings in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was cruising until the fifth, when he allowed a three-run homer to Hanley Ramirez. He came back out for the sixth, but was pulled after giving up three straight hits and allowing Boston to tie the game at 4-4. The 36-year-old lefty has pitched well down the stretch, helping New York stay in contention with a 3.09 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 35 innings over his last six starts. He'll face the slumping Blue Jays in another road start on Saturday.

Sabathia threw 6.1 scoreless innings Tuesday, allowing just three hits and a walk while striking out seven, but earning no decision against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran left-hander rebounded from his last start where he allowed three home runs, keeping the Dodgers off the scoreboard all night Tuesday. Sabathia would have been in line for the win had he finished the seventh inning, as the Yankees hit a pair of homers in the bottom of the seventh to take a lead they would never relinquish. Sabathia now has a 4.10 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the year.

Sabathia lasted just four innings Thursday against the Rays, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out four without a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was laboring all night, needing 87 pitches to retire 12 batters despite not issuing a single free pass. All three Rays runs came on solo homers, so at least the veteran did a good job of keeping his team in the game by limiting the damage caused by those long balls. His struggles in this excellent matchup against a bottom-10 offense don't bode well for Sabathia's chances in Tuesday's start against a more potent Dodgers lineup.
