Sabathia has surgery to remove bone spur

When it was announced that C.C. Sabathia would be seeing Dr. James Andrews to look at his pitching elbow, the “comforting” report was that there was no suspected structural damage in the elbow, and that it was thought to be a bone spur. And indeed, Sabathia had arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow today. Apparently everything went well, and all indications are that the Yankees’ ace should be ready to go by the time Spring Training rolls around.

  1. That's very good news. With 4 more years plus a relatively easy vesting option for the 2017 season the Yankees need CC at 100% for the next few years.

  2. Bone spurs are caused by abnormal bone growth or imperfect bone remodeling in response to pressure. Nice information you have shared. It is really going to help me a lot. Thanks for sharing this blog so clearly.
