After throwing from flat ground Wednesday, CC Sabathia (knee) may be able to get back on a mound next week.
Although this was a step in the right direction, Sabathia is still not expected to be back in the Yankees starting rotation before July. The Yankees big lefty went 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through his first eight starts before landing on the disabled list with a knee injury, so until he proves himself worthy again, fantasy owners should use him cautiously once back in the mix.

Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
