CC Sabathia SP NYY 6 days ago

Sabathia wasn't at his best Tuesday, allowing six runs in 4.2 innings against the Phillies.

Sabathia allowed two home runs and struck out just four in his start. The veteran lefty has had another tough season in 2014, holding a 5.65 ERA in 15 starts. He'll try to lower that figure when he takes the mound against the Astros this weekend.

Sabathia gave up three runs and struck out seven over six innings Thursday against the Marlins. He allowed five hits and didn't walk a batter in the no-decision.

This was essentially Sabathia at his best at this point, and the results were only modest gains for fantasy owners. The 34-year-old is already well separated from his prime days, and he isn't having a good time at Yankee Stadium, having given up 23 runs (22 earned) in 25 innings at home. He'll host the Phillies on Tuesday.

Sabathia struck out three and did not walk a batter while giving up four run on eight hits over five innings in a no-decision against Baltimore on Saturday.

The long ball continues to be a big part of the current version of Sabathia, as the Orioles homered twice against him in Saturday's game raising his season total to 14 homers allowed in just 77 innings. At this point, it's difficult to rely on Sabathia as more than a source of strikeouts, as he's carrying an ERA north of 5.00 (5.38) with an ugly 1.442 WHIP.

Sabathia (3-7) notched the win in his start Sunday against the Angels, despite being ejected following a double play to end the sixth inning. He gave up two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven batters.

Both Sabathia and manager Joe Girardi were ran from the game for arguing balls and strikes, obscuring what had been one of the lefty's better starts of the season. He surrendered two homers in the outing and still owns an ERA north of 5.00, so it's difficult to put much hope in him reemerging as an innings-eating stud for the Yankees. Sabathia is in line to make his next turn Sunday in Baltimore.

Sabathia will have his start moved up from Tuesday to Sunday, Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times reports.

The Yankees are at an odd point in the schedule with off days, so they'll reshuffle the rotation and move Sabathia up as Michael Pineda will have his scheduled start skipped to limited his workload. As a result, Sabathia will go Sunday, followed by Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday, Nathan Eovaldi on Wednesday and Pineda on Friday.

Sabathia didn't factor into the decision as he allowed two runs with six strikeouts over 5.2 innings in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Sabathia was able to right the ship a little bit after consecutive outings allowing at least five runs, but he still struggled to keep runners off the bases (nine hits) and to get deep into the game. He'll make another attempt at his third win Tuesday against the Nationals.

Sabathia allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out four in six innings against the A's on Thursday.

Sabathia was cruising with a 3-0 lead in the fifth inning before Billy Burns homered to start Oakland's comeback. In the sixth, Brett Lawrie hit a two-run home run that tied the game, and in the seventh, Josh Phegley and Mark Canha reached base with no one out to knock Sabathia out of the game. David Carpenter came on in relief and gave up a bases-loaded walk to Ben Zobrist and a sac fly to Billy Butler to make the game 5-3. Sabathia (2-7) was credited with both runs and picked up his 7th loss of the season. He'll look to bounce back in his next scheduled start Tuesday at Seattle.

Sabathia got shelled for six runs on seven hits and a walk in just 2.1 innings Saturday. He struck out four.

After a couple of good outings the wheels came right back off for Sabathia, who saw his ERA inflate back up to 5.47. He'll look for a better performance on Thursday, on the road in Oakland.

Sabathia won his second straight start on Saturday, giving up just one run on six hits in seven innings, striking out five.

It's nice to see him get the W's after he lost five of his first six starts on the season, and his 43:10 K:BB ratio is pretty good, but Sabathia's 4.67 ERA and eight home runs allowed in 52 innings are still warning signs that he's a risky asset. His next start will come on Saturday, at home to the Rangers.

Sabathia earned his first win of the season Monday, striking out nine Rays in seven innings and only allowing three earned runs.

Sabathia had gotten off to an awful start to the season, going 0-5 in his first six starts. In his past three starts, he had given up five home runs and four walks, and was allowing right-handed batters to hit .341 off of him. His next scheduled start is Saturday against the Royals.
