    Sabathia Headed to James Andrews, Elbow Surgery Likely

    New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia will visit with Dr. James Andrews soon to have his left elbow examined, general manager Brian Cashman confirmed Saturday.

    "We are going to have his elbow checked out," Cashman said.

    Sabathia has had a bone spur in his elbow since his days with the Cleveland Indians, a source said, and likely just needs the spur cleaned out.

    Sabathia had his elbow checked in August after he experienced stiffness and was placed on the disabled list. All of his ligaments were fine then, the source said, so the expectation is this is not a serious issue.

    However, Sabathia told reporters outside Yankee Stadium on Saturday that he's "a little bit" concerned.

    Damn, that's unheard of for CC with how much of a workhorse he's been in his career. His body and all those innings are catching up to him I guess..

    This. It seems like surgery for pitchers is just becoming a normal thing now, though.

    Probably because they are getting less risky over time.

    I love CC as a player and it really sucks to see a guy have to deal with this if he does in fact need Tommy John. At least science has improved to the point that its almost beneficial for some of these guys to get the surgery.

    On the other hand, I really do hate the Yankees so seeing them lose an ace for the whole year would be mildly amusing. A little torn on this one tbh.

    Thats terrible but his workload is insane even for such a big guy. They gotta scale that back.

    Yup. Hopefully it's just that and he will have the offseason to fully recover.

    Its really funny how it seems that every 5 years the Yankees are old and unhealthy, but also have roster flexibility somewhere that gets them a little younger here or there.

    For instance, they have some pretty nice trade chips in Mason Williams, Angel Gumbs, Tyler Austin, and so on....Pineda will be in the rotation next year and will be what...24?...they have about 40 million or so to spend on FAs...

    Yeah hoping that lower level prospects pan out was not the Yankee way, maybe it's becoming that way more now that George is dead but i still need to see it to believe it. (Not to forget Gary Sanchez too)

    The still look like trade bait to me honestly but i digress.

    Either way the Yankees won't have 40 million to spend this offseason when they are going to re-sign Rivera and Pettitte (if he doesnt retire). Not to mention the decision they need to make on Kuroda.

    Their payroll was at 198 million this year, if they want to stay under the luxury tax they aren't going to have a whole lot of money to spend.

    They are only most likely going to lose Swisher, Martin, maybe Kuroda as big money FA (that's 27.5 million dollars but they also have other backup position players to make decisions on).

    Either way don't expect them to have that much wiggle room with their payroll probably already being 170+ million dollars going into next season if they re-sign Kuroda, Rivera, and Pettitte (the last 2 they certainly will)

    How?

    When they will most likely re-sign Pettitte at a raise, Rivera at 15+million, Kuroda at nearly 10 (if they do re-sign him), and Ichiro?

    They are only guaranteed to lose Martin, Swisher, Feliciano, and Soriano who make 33 million between them?

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/0...k-yankees.html

    And Baseball prospectus's contracts have their payroll at closer to 210 million with AJ Burnett still on the books for 2013

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...Hc&output=html

    Their major bench players like Ibanez, Jones, Chavez only make 4 million between them.

    Ah, so the luxury tax of 189 is for 2014...even better for them. Youre also adding payroll that isnt there right now, which assumes a whole lot. You realize the those links say they have ~120 committed for next year? Plenty of room to work and no superstars to hand a mega contract to except maaaaaaybe Hamilton.
