Yankees' Sabathia to make spring debut on Friday

The SportsXchange

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia threw 50 pitches in a four-inning simulated game Sunday morning and is scheduled to make his first spring-training appearance in a game on Friday, multiple media outlets reported.

Sabathia had surgery to remove a bone spur in his left elbow last October.

He is expected to throw about 65 pitches in Friday's game, when the Yankees face the Miami Marlins.

"Felt good today, no problems. I felt strong. I'm ready to go," Sabathia said, according to "I'm working pretty hard and trying to throw all my pitches and make it as game-like as possible. I'm getting good work out of it."

His left elbow hasn't bothered him during his last two throwing sessions.

Sabathia went 15-6 with 3.38 ERA last season for the Yankees.
