New York Yankees starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia was back on the mound Saturday for the first time since his surgery. The left hander threw off the mound for 29 pitches in his first action since having surgery in October to remove a bone spur in his left elbow.
Sabathia told reporters that he thought the session went well. “No problems. Probably didn’t throw a strike, but that’s normal for my first bullpen. I got a little nervous when I first got up there. Hadn’t been up there. Didn’t know how I was going to feel, but I immediately felt good and I felt comfortable.”
Sabathia had two stints on the disabled list last season while dealing with a strained groin and then later in the year, an inflamed elbow on his pitching arm. He managed to post a 15-6 record with a 3.38 ERA despite his production falling off in the second half of the regular season.
The New York Yankees are planning to ease Sabathia back into the lineup and he will not make a spring training start until early March according to reports.

Unlike the past decade, or since the infamous Core Four, the Yankee brass wants to depend on the farm system to produce the team’s future stars. The last homegrown star to come up was Brett Gardner back in 2008.

the rotation if they are going to remain competitive in the vastly improved AL
East. The Associated Press reports that C.C. Sabathia, 32, threw off a mound on

Nobody is more excited to return to baseball than Derek Jeter.
Last season came to a crushing end for the Yankees captain, who fractured his ankle in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series in October, and Jeter says the ensuing offseason has been a nightmare.
“My offseason was terrible,” he told reporters Sunday. “Absolutely terrible.”
Jeter was reportedly unable...
Before fracturing his ankle in game one of the ALCS against the Tigers last October, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was told he had a stress fracture in his foot. Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that the team only knew about a bone bruise, and manager Joe Girardi agreed with that statement. But during a media session on Sunday, Jeter came out with the revelation of the stress fracture...
New York Yankees’ star shortstop
Derek Jeter has arrived at Yankees’ Spring Training camp in Tampa, Florida.
Jeter will work out with the team, but he will not participate in the Yankees’
initial Spring Training games, which begin on February 23. Instead, he will
wait until at least early March to test his surgically repaired ankle in
full-speed game action.
New York Yankee fans need to relax, big time!

Kevin Youkilis might play for the Yankees, but he will forever be a Boston Red Sox in my mind.
So earlier this week when Youkilis told ESPN New York, “I’ll always be a Red Sox,” personally, I found it refreshingly honest.
The problem is a majority of Yankees Universe did not.
Matthew McGough: "I grew up a huge fan of the New York Yankees..."
Although he might not appear in any New York Yankees spring training games, veteran shortstop Derek Jeter hopes to be ready for Opening Day.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter could start running on
the field in the next couple days for the first time since ankle
surgery and still expects to be ready for opening day.
Legendary New York Yankees reliever Mariano Rivera told ESPN’s Buster Olney that there’s “a good chance” he would have retired had he returned to pitch in last autumn’s playoffs. The 43-year-old Rivera, who has amassed a record 608 saves, 76 … Continue reading →

You can deny it all you want, jump up and down, throw a tantrum, or just ignore the facts – the choice is yours. But when you look at the evidence, there is no denying that David Wright has practically mirrored Derek Jeter in terms of overall production and value to the team during the regular season. In fact, Wright outproduced Jeter over a broad array of offensive...
