Manager Joe Girardi said he would be "shocked" it CC Sabathia (knee) is back when his 15 day DL window is up. He is actually still on crutches.
This is looking like an injury that will keep the not-so-big-as-he-once-was fella on the sidelines for a while. He is dealing with what has been labeled "degenerative changes" to his knee, and has already taken a cortisone shot and will be receiving stem cell treatment as well. How his knee responds is the key, obviously, but I would not count out a return to respectability when he gets healthy, so don't just cut him.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
