CC Sabathia SP NYY 3 days ago

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.

Sabathia fell to 0-5 after allowing four runs on nine hits and two walks over 6.1 innings in Wednesday's loss to Toronto.

Two relatively decent starts have done little to take the edge off Sabathia's struggles to start this year, as he's been homer-prone and highly hittable despite a pretty strong 29:8 K:BB. Sabathia's fastball velocity is as low as it's ever been, but the Yankees are going to give the 34-year-old every opportunity to work it out. He'll face the Rays on Monday.

Sabathia gave up two earned runs on seven hits, walking two and striking out three in a road win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Sabathia earned the no decision on Friday in what was considered an impressive performance based on his early season struggles. Sabathia still holds a 5.40 ERA and continues to struggle with his velocity which has been way down over the last year or so. His next start will be against the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Sabathia got hammered on Saturday, coughing up seven runs on nine hits, including three home runs, in just five innings.

The drubbing dropped Sabathia's record on the season to 0-4, and inflated his ERA to 5.96. His 22:4 K:BB ratio through 25.2 innings is actually pretty good, but otherwise there hasn't been anything in Sabathia's performance so far in 2015 to indicate he deserves a spot on a fantasy roster.

Sabathia pitched well in a losing effort Monday, allowing two runs in eight innings of work against the Tigers.

This start was Sabathia's best of the season, despite walking three in the outing. The big lefty is trying to get his career back on track after a tough season in 2013 and an injury-plagued 2014 campaign. He'll be looking for his first win when he takes the mound against the Mets this weekend.

Sabathia gave up four earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven in seven innings Tuesday against the Orioles.

This outcome should not come as a surprise, as Sabathia is now 0-5 with a 5.48 ERA over his last seven starts against Baltimore, and he has been similarly bad against the rest of the league over that span too. While this was a slight improvement over his first start of the season since he was able to pitch a little deeper into the game, he continues to get hit hard. He has basically become the American League's version of Tim Lincecum -- a once dominant starter who can still get strikeouts and limit walks but just gives up too many hits to be successful over a long stretch.

Sabathia gave up five runs- four earned- while striking out eight and walking none in 5.2 innings Thursday against Toronto.

Sabathia was actually more impressive that his line indicates. Despite coming off knee surgery in July and pitching for the first time since May of last year, Sabathia had good control and was never hit hard in the loss. Sabathia will take the mound again Tuesday against the Orioles.

Sabathia (knee) will make his next Grapefruit League start Saturday and is unlikely to be the Opening Day start, LoHud.com reports.

Due to the Saturday start, Sabathia would either need to make his final spring start or first regular season appearance on short rest in order to be ready by Opening Day -- a scenario manager Joe Girardi said was unlikely. The lefty has started on Opening Day in all six seasons he's been with the Yankees, and though no official announcement has been made, it appears he'll now pass that torch to Masahiro Tanaka.
