Sabathia will take the hill for Friday's series opener in Kansas City, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Sabathia will just have his start pushed back two days following Wednesday's postponement. Luis Severino and Sonny Gray will follow Sabathia against the Royals. Through seven starts this season, Sabathia has logged a 2.23 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with a 28:5 K:BB.

Sabathia will not make a start Wednesday as the Yankees' game against Washington has been postponed due to inclement weather, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday's scheduled contest, as well as the conclusion of Tuesday's suspended game, will be made up June 18. It seems likely that Sabathia will get his start pushed back to Friday for the series opener in Kansas City, but the club will likely announce their upcoming rotation in the near future.

Sabathia intends to retire if the Yankees win the World Series this year, the New York Post reports. "I want one more parade and pretty sure that will be it,'' Sabathia told The Post. "I thought I had it last year.''

EDGE Analysis

This news obviously only affects Sabathia owners in dynasty leagues. Even there, it's hardly surprising to hear that a 37-year-old might call it quits. The veteran has accomplished quite a lot in his 18-year career. Since his debut in 2001, Sabathia ranks first among all pitchers in wins (239), starts (515), innings pitched (3349.1) and strikeouts (2869). He won one World Series title with the Yankees back in 2009.

Sabathia (2-0) earned the win Sunday, allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out four over seven innings against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

At 37 years old, Sabathia isn't the overpowering pitcher he once was -- and that's reflected in his 5.5 K/9 and the fact that the four punch outs tied a season high -- but he's still found a way to be a successful pitcher in the latter stages of his career. The one run was his first earned run allowed in three starts, as he lowered his ERA to a minuscule 1.71. Though the strikeouts probably won't come back, pitching in front of the highest scoring offense in the league should provide plenty of opportunities for the lefty to rack up wins. He'll look to stay sharp next time out, Friday against the Indians.

Sabathia (1-0) allowed two hits while walking one and striking out four across six scoreless innings to record the win Tuesday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia put together both his best and longest outing of the season, needing only 82 pitches to work six strong innings. It was his second start since returning from a hip injury, and after being limited to only 71 pitches in his previous start, it was encouraging to see him stretched out a bit further. With little strikeout upside, he'll need to consistently pitch deep into games to maintain fantasy value.

Sabathia allowed two runs (none earned) on four hits while walking one and striking out one Thursday against the Blue Jays. He did not factor in the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia returned from a hip injury that placed him on the disabled list and the Yankees seemed to take a cautious approach with him as a result. He threw only 71 pitches and was pulled after allowing a single and subsequent passed ball in the fifth inning, spoiling his chance for a win. Sabathia has yet to pitch deeper than five innings into a game this season, but that should change if he can remain healthy.

Sabathia (hip) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list and start Thursday's game against Toronto, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees have yet to make the move official, but Sabathia is on the lineup card for the series opener. He wound up missing the past two weeks due to a right hip strain after being removed from his second start of the season with the injury. Over nine innings of work this season, Sabathia has logged a 4.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with a 7:2 K:BB.

Sabathia (hip) is now expected to return from the disabled list Thursday against the Blue Jays, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was originally expected to come off the disabled list Tuesday against the Marlins, but after Sunday's postponement, his start will now be pushed back a game. Sabathia posted a 6.23 ERA over 21.2 innings against the Blue Jays last season.

Sabathia (hip) is expected to return from the disabled list Tuesday in order to start against the Marlins on that day, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty left his previous start with hip strain, but it appears that the issue has largely subsided. If he is able to make this scheduled start, he would likely face off with fellow southpaw Jarlin Garcia. If Sabathia isn't ready though, look for Luis Cessa to stay in the rotation for another turn.

Sabathia was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with a right hip strain.

EDGE Analysis

He left Friday's start after four innings with the ailment. It is unclear how long he will be sidelined. Domingo German and Luis Cessa were recalled from Triple-A, and one of the two figures to slot into Sabathia's spot in the rotation. Both German and Cessa will also be available to pitch in Saturday's game if needed, as the Yankees won't need a fifth starter until Thursday.
