Sabathia (4-2) allowed two runs -- one earned -- on four hits and a walk while striking out six batters over five innings during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia has now won consecutive starts and allowed just a single earned run through 11.2 innings. He has a career-worst 1.9 K/BB rate and 4.90 FIP for the season, though, so expectations should remain in check going forward. It's also probably best to only utilize Sabathia in favorable matchups. The veteran lefty lines up for a home start against the Athletics next.

Sabathia (3-2) fired 6.2 scoreless innings Tuesday, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out four, in a 7-1 win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

As has been the case for a lot of pitchers this season, facing the Kansas City offense was just what Sabathia needed to turn things around after coughing up 22 runs in 20.2 innings over his last four starts. The veteran lefty still has a 4.93 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the year, but will look to build some momentum in his next start Sunday on the road against the Rays.

Sabathia (2-2) gave up five runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

All five runs came home in the second inning, when Sabathia -- sitting on a 2-0 lead -- gave up a seemingly unstoppable parade of singles. While he recovered to pitch six innings, Sabathia has still given up an atrocious 22 runs (all earned) over his last 20.2 innings. It's hard to expect much out of the 36-year-old lefty in fantasy, and those owners who are forced to lean on him had best pick their spots carefully.

Sabathia allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out five batters in a no-decision during Wednesday's win over Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

After a promising start to the season (1.47 ERA through three outings), Sabathia has allowed 17 runs through 14.2 innings over his past three starts, including five home runs. His 10.43 ERA and 2.11 WHIP during that span are crippling ratios, and it's difficult to rely on Sabathia at this stage of the game. He has a tough road start against the Reds on deck, too.

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.
