Sabathia doesn’t expect to be far behind in Spring Training


Via Jorge Castillo: CC Sabathia doesn’t expect to be far behind his usual schedule in Spring Training following October surgery to remove a bone spur from his pitching elbow. “I don’t think I’ll be that far behind … Maybe just a bullpen session behind or a batting practice session that I might skip so we’ll see what happens when I get down there,” said the left-hander. Sabathia, 32, also said that he recently stretched out his long-toss program to 110-feet and doesn’t have any discomfort. Hooray for that.

  • Eddard: Back and better than never

    Guys like CC and Jeter rehab the right way. I really hope the younger guys on the club follow their lead and not A-Rod’s. I just hope A-Rod hasn’t infected Cano and Nunie like he has Cervelli. A-Rod even taught Cervelli how to make up BS excuses. Cut A-Rod, cut Cervelli. Do what the Giants did last year and send the cheaters home. The team will rally.

      ” I just hope A-Rod hasn’t infected Cano and Nunie like he has Cervelli”

      Is this a poorly deployed steroids jab or are you outing A-Rod?


      • Manny’s BanWagon (formerly Andy Pettitte’s Fibula)

        Maybe Cano will hold a press conference to deny he’s gay like Mike Piazza did back in the day.

        Michael Kay and LaGreca were just talking about the other day.

          I hereby deny that I am either gay or Dominican.

          Robinson Cano

          • Manny’s BanWagon (formerly Andy Pettitte’s Fibula)

            With a name like Cano, I thought he was Italian or more likely Sicilian.

      Oh, Eddard.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        Such a jokester, that Eddard, and, by “jokester,” I mean….

    • Evan3457

      The Giants didn’t send the cheater home until there was an actual positive test.

      • Ted Nelson

        And until MLB sent him home…

      I laughed out loud at a comment here for the first time in a while.

      Why stop there? Why not douse them with liquor and drive them off a cliff so they die in a flaming wreck?

    110′ is not “long toss”. This article makes me feel worse about Sabathia.

      I know nothing of usual rehab programs for any surgery, let alone his, so I’d be interested if you know something that leads you to believe that that’s a bad sign.

        I’m gonna venture the answer is no.
