Bad, but not terrible news for Yankees fans.
CC Sabathia was diagnosed with a minor meniscus tear of the right knee that will require surgery, The Post has learned.
The NY Post is reporting he’ll need just three weeks to fully recover from the surgery, leaving him plenty of time to get ready for spring training.
Still, the news is somewhat troubling because we rarely hear injury news surrounding Sabathia. Only once in his 10-year career has he started less than 30 games. In the past four seasons he’s started at least 34 games. He’s definitely one of the most durable pitchers in the game.
Will this affect how hard the Yankees go after Cliff Lee? Probably not.
