Yankees’ Sabathia Allows Two Runs in First Outing Since Surgery

March 15 (Bloomberg) -- New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia allowed two runs in five innings in his first spring-training appearance after offseason elbow surgery.

Sabathia allowed three hits and his only walk in the first inning of a 7-3 win today against the Miami Marlins. He left after giving up eight hits and striking out two while throwing 64 pitches at Tampa, Florida.

The 32-year-old left-hander had arthroscopic surgery to remove a small bone spur from his pitching elbow in October after going 15-6 with a 3.38 earned run average in 2012.

The Yankees are counting on Sabathia’s health at the start of the season to overcome injuries. First baseman Mark Teixeira, outfielder Curtis Granderson and pitcher Phil Hughes all could miss at least the first month of the campaign. Teixeira has a strained tendon in his wrist, Granderson a broken forearm and Hughes a bulging disk in his upper back. Third baseman Alex Rodriguez is out until midseason following hip surgery.

The Yankees open their season at home on April 1 against the Boston Red Sox.
