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.
