New York Yankees Spring Training Notes 2/16

CC Sabathia threw his first bullpen session since having elbow surgery in the off season which consisted of 29 pitches, all fastballs and change ups. Sabathia said that he felt nervous when he started to throw but immediately felt good and comfortable after throwing a few pitches. Great news that he was pain and complication free because in a season that is going to be filled with question marks we need CC Sabathia to once again be the rock of the rotation.

Joe Girardi said that both CC Sabathia and Mariano Rivera will be skipped during the first time in the Yankees Spring Training rotation. Girardi said that neither are likely to throw their first Grapefruit League pitches until at least March.

Speaking of Mariano Rivera he threw roughly 30 pitches today in a bullpen side session. He also came through it pain and complication free so the Sandman looks to be healthy and back for the 2013 season after losing most of the 2012 season to an ACL surgery.
