Sabathia (2-1) got hammered for seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six over 5,2 innings but escaped with a no-decision in Friday's 14-11 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty's ERA has almost tripled over his last two starts as the inevitable correction in his stat line occurred. Sabathia's 4.34 ERA and 1.34 WHIP are still useful in deeper AL-only formats, but in shallower leagues there's little reason to continue rostering him. He'll next take the mound Wednesday at home against the Blue Jays.

Sabathia (2-1) allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three across five innings to take the loss Friday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia gave up all four runs in the first two innings before settling down, but the Yankees offense was unable to give him much run support, leading to his first loss of the season. Despite the rough outing, this was the first time in four starts that he's allowed more than two earned runs, and his ERA stands a respectable 2.70. The 36-year-old had a similar strong start to the 2016 season before tailing off as the season wore on, but for now he's still worthy of a weekly spot in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Red Sox.

Sabathia (2-0) allowed a single run on three hits and a walk while striking out six batters over 7.1 innings during Saturday's win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty is having a throwback start to the campaign with two wins already and a minuscule 1.47 ERA. It's also encouraging that Sabathia showed an uptick in the strikeout department with six punchouts Saturday. You'll want to keep expectations in check, but Sabathia could continue to provide sneaky fantasy results, and he should be on your radar.

Sabathia (1-0) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and four walks across six innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Orioles. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia yielded a couple of runs in the second inning as four men reached base, but he settled down thereafter and was only scored upon again after Adam Jones reached second base on a passed ball before Mark Trumbo's fifth-inning single. He struggled with his command at times, throwing just 59 percent of his pitches for strikes, but the damage was mitigated by the fact that the O's did not muster a single extra-base hit. Sabathia will take a winning record and a 1.64 ERA into Friday's matchup with the Cardinals.

Sabathia (1-0) scattered three hits and two walks while striking out two over five scoreless innings to pick up the win in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

It was an outstanding start to the season for the veteran lefty, who threw 55 of 85 pitches for strikes and was comfortably sitting at 91-92 mph with his fastball. Sabathia hasn't shown that kind of velocity on a regular basis since 2013, but if he has found a little more juice on his heater this season he could put together a surprisingly productive campaign.

Sabathia will start the second game of the season on April 4 against the Rays, manager Joe Girardi announced on Friday, Anthony Rieber of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

At 36 years old, it's quite a turnaround for Sabathia, who had to battle for a rotation spot last spring after finishing the 2014 and 2015 seasons with 5.28 and 4.73 ERAs, respectively. Though he did see some improvement in 2016 on the way to curtailing his HR/9 rate and posting his first sub-4.00 ERA since 2012, it might say more of the state of the Yankees' current rotation options than anything else that he's this high up in the pecking order. The veteran lefty won't likely regain his mid-career form, but he should still be a solid innings eater capable of posting decent strikeout numbers.

Sabathia threw two simulated innings on Thursday and is expected to make his first start of spring next Tuesday, Meredith Marakovits of YESnetwork.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 36-year-old was pleased with the two-inning simulated game went Thursday, saying afterwards that he felt he was game ready. He'll continue to progress through spring without any further restrictions, and will look to build on his bounce-back season last year, where he posted his best ERA (3.91) since 2012.

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.
