New York Yankees ace left-hander C.C. Sabathia is in track in his recovery from elbow surgery to return for spring training.
Sabathia, 32, underwent surgery in late October to remove bone spurs from the elbow. He was wearing a brace Wednesday in Yankee Stadium while assisting with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, according to ESPN.
"I feel pretty good," Sabathia told ESPN. "The flexibility is coming back. I expect there to be no delays up until spring training so I should be ready to go."
Sabathia anticipates being able to start throwing after Christmas.
He finished the 2012 season with a 15-6 record and a 3.38 ERA in 200-plus innings.
