Visit to Dr. James Andrews reveals no structural damage in Sabathia's knee

A recent visit to Dr. James Andrews revealed no structural damage in Yankees Pitcher CC Sabathia's knee, The Star-Ledgers's Jorge Castillo reports.

Sabathia, 33, suffered the injury some time during his last start in Milwaukee, where he surrendered 3 home runs in just 5.1 innings as the Bombers fell to his old team in competetive fashion, 5-4.

On Sunday, the Yanks put the lefty on the 15-Day DL, with #52 requesting the visit the same day. It was never meant to be taken too seriously, as Sabathia has never been legitimately hurt anywhere in his leg, but since he is owed $23 million this year I guess it wouldn't hurt anything to make sure he's healthy. 

The eighth-highest player in baseball has been very un-ace like for the Pinstripes so far this season, going just 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA in 8 starts. Among those eight starts, unbeknownst to some, Sabathia has put up a pair of high quality road performances in Boston and St. Pete, where he gave up just 2 earned runs in 6 innings and 1 earned run in 7 innings respectively.

The point of that last sentence: this guy can still pitch. Don't give up on him yet.
