    CC Sabathia progressing well...

    Standing at his locker after a 36-pitch bullpen this morning, CC Sabathia was sweating. This was not playing catch. This was not tossing a few fastballs nice and easy. This was his normal pregame warmup, throwing all of his pitches, pitching as if getting ready to make a start.

    “I got after it a little bit, and I have been in the bullpens,” he said. “This is the time to test it, and I will when I’m down there in Tampa. It’s not just like rehabbing, I really do need to test it to see if I can do it. I feel like I feel pretty good.”

    Working his way back from a stem-cell injection meant to help repair some degenerative damage in his right knee. He’s wearing a brace and said he feels a noticeable difference from the way he felt earlier this season. He’s planning to fly to Tampa tomorrow, face hitters in live batting practice on Tuesday, and he plans to pitch in some sort of minor league game on Saturday.

    “I feel good,” Sabathia said. “I’m optimistic. I feel like I’ll be able to go. If I didn’t I would be out there trying to put us through this, because I know how much it affected me, how good it didn’t feel. Just putting the team in a bad spot. But I feel good.”

    Joe Girardi said the Yankees are “encouraged” by Sabathia’s progress. The Yankees have previously said Sabathia’s not likely to be back until after the All-Star break, which is three weeks from Tuesday. Sabathia said he doesn’t have an exact time table for his return, but he’s hoping he needs fewer than five rehab starts (a number he seemed to pluck out of the air, just saying he felt he might not need too many minor league games before being big league ready).

    “I’ve been sitting around here just feeling sorry for myself, just watching the team grind,” Sabathia said. “It’s tough. You want to be out there helping these guys, so I feel better that I do have a little light where I can see hopefully getting out there, helping.”

    Much rather have him than Nuno. Even a terrible CC at least provides some length. Nuno sucks.




    I miss fat CC!!!

    It's sad that I don't really care. He is better than nuno I guess but so is almost any other pitcher

    Lets check this out...if Fatso CC and Pineda do come back, should Phelps and Whitney be taken out of rotation, providing they are still doing a good job?

    One of them will replace Nuno. The other will probably replace Whitley considering he will be on an innings limit this year. He's a converted reliever who's career high in IP was 91 in 2011.

    Whitley's been great, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't wear down in August or so. He's just never pitched this much. I would replace Nuno first obviously, but I would say move Whitley to the long man role or something in August if Pineda or CC comes back then.

    Who knows with Pineda, CC will probably be back first. Pineda still has slight inflammation in his back. He may throw next Saturday.

    They'll both go undefeated after the break.

    Pineda won't be back till September, IMO. They'll be very careful with him. That might be a good thing because he can really give the team a shot in the arm down the stretch if the Yanks are still in the race, which I expect them to be. Unlike guys like Whitley and Phelps, who have both had their moments, Pineda has shut down type stuff.

    There is no guarantee if and when they do come back that they, especially CC might still have problems pitching. Don't forget the Yankees went thru this with him last year and you always get the same response "I feel good better than ever" and he still has the one big bad inning. I say, pay the difference and get rid of him.
