Sabathia will toe the rubber for Game 7 against the Astros on Saturday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was terrific for the Yankees in his Game 3 start, pitching six scoreless innings while striking out five and allowing just three hits and four walks. He will once again oppose Charlie Morton in the series-deciding contest, but this time he will be the one pitching in a hostile environment at Minute Maid Park.

Sabathia is set to start Game 3 against the Astros on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

This will place Sabathia right on schedule for normal rest following his outing against the Indians on Wednesday. The veteran has been a reliable presence that the club desperately needs, and will follow Masahiro Tanaka and Luis Severino, respectively, in the rotation for the ALCS, with Sonny Gray slated for Game 4. If this series winds up going the distance, it's likely that Sabathia will be back on the mound for a decisive Game 7 on Saturday.

Sabathia would start Game 5 of the ALDS against the Indians if necessary, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia will make his second start of the postseason if the Yankees are able to even the series Monday and force a decisive Game 5. The big southpaw allowed four runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out five batters in his first start of the postseason.

Sabathia will start Game 2 of the ALDS on Friday against the Indians, Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM 1100 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia will face off against Indians ace Corey Kluber. The big southpaw compiled a 3.62 ERA and 24:5 K:BB through five September starts (27.1 innings). Sonny Gray will start Game 1 for the Yankees, with Masahiro Tanaka getting the ball for Game 3.

Sabathia (14-5) earned the win over the Blue Jays on Saturday, allowing four hits over 5.2 scoreless innings. He struck out six and did not issue a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Given the ball over Jaime Garcia with the AL East still up for grabs entering play Saturday, Sabathia maximized his 75 pitches and came away with his 14th win (most since 2013). The 37-year-old allowed three runs or fewer in seven of his last eight starts to close the regular season and possibly his career with the Yankees. A free agent this winter, he would presumably only make another start if the Yankees were to advance to the ALCS.

Sabathia is starting Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Pete Caldera of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was a late call by the Yankees, just hours before first pitch, as Jaime Garcia had been listed as the confirmed starter earlier in the day. Sabathia has a 4.57 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 21.2 innings over four starts this month. He is a worthwhile option for owners chasing wins and strikeouts in the final days of the regular season.

Sabathia (13-5) picked up the win after allowing three runs on six hits and a walk in six innings Monday against the Royals. He struck out four batters.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia cruised through the first six innings in just 72 pitches before running into trouble in the seventh frame. He allowed a leadoff single before back-to-back homers by Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas forced him out of the game. The southpaw still managed to notch a quality start, his second straight and fifth in his last seven outings. He'll carry a 3.84 ERA into his final start of the regular season, which is scheduled for Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Sabathia (12-5) threw six innings of two-run ball to get the win Tuesday against the Twins, allowing six hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia allowed a run after loading the bases in the first inning and allowed a solo home run in the third. He limited baserunners to great effect after the early stages and received the run support necessary to nab his first victory of September. Sabathia bounced back after a shortened outing in his previous start and has now allowed two runs or fewer five times in his last six starts ahead of Monday's turn against the Royals.

Sabathia will have his next start pushed back to Tuesday against the Twins, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees want to keep Sabathia off Toronto's turf next weekend, so they'll push his spot in the rotation back by a couple of days, moving Sonny Gray up to pitch in his place Sunday. The 37-year-old lefty owns a 3.85 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 131 innings this season.

Sabathia allowed one run on six hits and two walks across 4.2 innings in a no-decision Monday against the Rays. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia threw 68 percent of his pitches for strikes as he battled through a couple of minor jams in the early frames, but he put two men on before his removal with one out in the fifth. He was once again victimized by some infield hits, but good strikeout stuff and five groundball outs helped him mitigate the damage. Though the lefty would've liked to go deeper into the game, he has now allowed two runs or fewer in four of his last five starts to lower his ERA to 3.85. Sabathia will look to do just that Saturday against the Orioles.
