New York Yankees’ CC Sabathia to Undergo MRI on Knee After Experiencing Swelling Following Last Rehab Start

CC Sabathia's road back to the New York Yankees later this month has taken a possible turn for the worse and could put a damper on his future plans for this season.

After throwing 3.1 innings against the Class-AA Portland Sea Dogs for the Trenton Thunder, Sabathia will now go for an MRI on his knee after he woke up this morning with swelling in the knee, as Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reported.

The knee is the one that landed him on the disabled list back on May 11 with inflammation, but was then revealed that he had a degenerative knee condition that required stem cell treatment.

If all had go well, Sabathia could have been on track to return shortly after the All Star break in two weeks, but it looks like Sabathia may not be making it back if he has to be shut down so they don't further worsen the knee.

Sabathia was 3-4 with a 5.26 ERA before landing on the disabled list two months ago. If the Yankees aren't able to get Sabathia back this month, it will only enhance the Yankees need to make a deal for a starting pitcher, maybe even two now. The team has been rumored to several starters on the market before the July 31 trade deadline.
