The Yankees have announced the date and the expected recovery time for CC Sabathia’s knee surgery.
Sabathia has a small meniscus tear in his right knee. He will undergo arthroscopic surgery on Friday. It will be performed by Dr. Christopher Ahmad at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Sabathia will begin therapy immediately after the surgery, and within three to six weeks, he is expected to begin his regular routine in preparation for spring training.
Assuming no complications, the surgery should do very little to change Sabathia’s offseason routine. Most pitchers don’t begin throwing until after Christmas anyway.
