Sabathia (9-3) held the Mariners to one run on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a victory Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia labored for this win, as he needed 98 pitches to get through just five frames. But he made the big pitches when he needed to, as Sabathia induced 12 swinging strikes and six ground balls to strand six of seven baserunners. For somebody many thought was washed up, Sabathia has been a powerful anchor for the Yankees rotation. Since May 16, Sabathia has allowed just nine earned runs in as many starts, good for a 1.62 ERA over 50 innings.

Sabathia (8-3) allowed just two hits and five walks while striking out three over the course of six shutout-innings during Sunday's win against Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia turned in another outstanding start, squashing the Red Sox during each jam that he faced throughout the first game of Sunday's doubleheader. Although the southpaw wasn't able to punch out many opposing hitters, he continuously escaped innings by inducing ground balls. This marked the third time in the last four starts that Sabathia hasn't allowed a run, with the only outlier coming during his return from the DL (hamstring) prior to the All-Star break. Sabathia will likely get an extra day of rest following this start, and projects to pitch next against the Mariners on Saturday.

Sabathia will start the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Red Sox,

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees will be looking to preserve their bullpen as much as possible following Friday's 16-inning marathon, and Sabathia, who was not scheduled to pitch this weekend, appeared to be the safer option over projected hurler Bryan Mitchell. The veteran southpaw has a penchant for going deep into ballgames and tossed eight shutout innings in his only other start against Boston this year, so he'll get an early start to the second half of the season. Sabathia owns a respectable 3.81 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 14 starts this year.

Sabathia is healthy, but the Yankees decided not to start him against the Red Sox in the upcoming series, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming out of the All-Star break, the Yankees had a chance to tinker with the rotation for their important four-game set against their first-place division rivals. Sabathia has a respectable 3.81 ERA in 14 starts this year but, despite his eight-inning shutout performance against Boston on June 7, the club probably didn't want to deploy the southpaw with the Green Monster in play by right-handed batters. Look for him to rejoin the rotation sometime in the middle or late portion of next week.

Sabathia (7-3) gave up four runs on three hits and three walks over 2.2 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Making his first start after a three-week DL trip due to a hamstring injury, Sabathia didn't look ready, as he barely missed any bats and ultimately imploded in the third inning. The 36-year-old lefty has had a surprisingly productive campaign, but he can't outpitch his subpar peripherals forever. It's wise to moderate expectations for Sabathia in the fantasy realm. He'll make his next start following the All-Star break, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Yankees shuffle their rotation to give him extra rest.

Sabathia (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and will start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

After it was initially feared Sabathia would miss around six weeks with the hamstring strain he suffered during a June 13 start, the lefty will return in about half of that timetable without even requiring a rehab start in the minors. Though he only covered three innings in a simulated game last week, Sabathia isn't expected to face any strict limitations with his pitch count during Tuesday's outing. Sabathia's return will likely result in Luis Cessa moving back to the bullpen.

Sabathia (hamstring) will likely start Tuesday against the Blue Jays barring any setbacks, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia felt good following his bullpen Saturday and should be able to make his next scheduled start this upcoming week. The left-hander also completed a three-inning simulated game Thursday, which prompted Sabathia to say that he was "ready to go" and wouldn't need any rehab assignments. The team will come out with an official announcement regarding whether or not Sabathia will be able to return in the coming days.

Sabathia (hamstring) will throw a bullpen session Saturday and could then rejoin the rotation next week, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia declared himself ready to go after pitching in a simulated game Thursday, but with the veteran lefty expected to forego a rehab assignment, the club added one more hurdle to ensure he's in game shape. An official announcement is likely to come after Saturday's session, and if he is activated, Sabathia will look to pick things up where he left off before getting hurt, as he had worked to a 0.99 ERA over his last six starts.

Sabathia (hamstring) said everything felt fine following Thursday's simulated game and he expects to rejoin the Yankees' rotation in the upcoming week, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While there has been no confirmation at this point, it appears Sabathia will return to the rotation to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays. The big southpaw was cruising before landing on the DL with a hamstring strain, compiling a 0.99 ERA and 35:7 K:BB ratio in his last six starts (36.1 innings).

Sabathia (hamstring) could rejoin the Yankees' rotation July 4 against the Blue Jays if Sabathia feels OK after the three-inning simulated game he threw Thursday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw is eligible to resurface from the 10-day disabled list Saturday, but New York wants to keep him on his normal schedule following his Thursday work. Sabathia might skip a minor-league rehab assignment if the team deems him ready. The hulking left-hander has experienced a bit of a correction following a sterling start to the season, but his 3.46 ERA still would be his best since 2012 (3.38), and his improved control is allowing his soft yet sharper stuff to play better in the strike zone.
