Explaining some of CC Sabathia’s elbow soreness, without creating concern about a long-term problem, the Yankees expected their ace to have a bone spur removed by Dr. James Andrews in the coming days.

General manager Brian Cashman confirmed that Sabathia will visit Dr. Andrews, but would not comment on the bone spur. A Yankees official, however, confirmed that the team believes Sabathia has a bone spur that will be removed. That could explain the elbow soreness that led to a brief stint on the disabled list this season.

That said, a bone spur is relatively good news. It’s a fairly common injury, easily fixed, and comes without the long-term concerns of ligament damage.
