Cashman: Sabathia to undergo season-ending surgery on right knee July 23. Not the micro fracture surgery, but a “cleanup” procedure

I guess this is the better scenario than trying the microfracture procedure, but either way it’s not good for CC or the Yankees. The big guy is set to go under the knife for the third time on his right knee next Wednesday and his season is over. It doesn’t sound like there is any time table set for his return, so who knows if he’ll be ready to start the 2015 season on time.
There’s a report out from YES saying the surgery IS microfracture, but all the other reports coming from the beat crew say otherwise. If that changes or if more comes out, we’ll update the post as needed.
