Davidoff: Sabathia shut down for knee surgery — and it might get worse

Here comes debridement.

CC Sabathia will undergo season-ending arthroscopic surgery to repair his right knee, Brian Cashman said Friday. The Yankees general manager made clear that the big left-hander is not yet out of the woods in terms of needing the more invasive microfracture procedure that would jeopardize his career…

As Cashman put it, Sabathia, who last pitched for the Yankees on May 10, tried the path of least resistance by rehabilitating the knee, a process that failed when Sabathia woke up the morning of July 3 (after pitching the night before for the Yankees’ Double-A Trenton affiliate) with pain.

Now he’ll try the path of middle resistance, with the most drastic option still looming in the microfracture surgery.

If the debridement accomplishes its mission, Sabathia should be fully rehabilitated for spring training next year.

Cashman: CC Sabathia out until July

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia’s knee injury is likely to keep him out of action until July 1 and possibly longer, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Speaking on ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney’s podcast, Cashman said Sabathia has some breakdown of cartilage in his right knee, which caused the pain, swelling and fluid buildup that sent him to the disabled list on May 11, the day after he allowed three long home runs in a 5-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Sabathia visited noted orthopedic surgeon James Andrews last week and was given a stem-cell injection in his knee, a painful procedure that left the 33-year-old left-hander on crutches.

“It’s an unpredictable time frame,” Cashman said. “I’d say you’re talking at least six weeks until you see him on a major league mound again.”

Cashman said Sabathia would need to keep weight off his knee for a period of time and would begin with exercises in a pool to reduce the strain on his knee. He would gradually progress through strengthening exercises and eventually a return to pitching.
