Yankees Prepared to Lose CC Sabathia for Season

New York Post—August 24, 2015

The New York Post reports that New York Yankees' CC Sabathia experienced pain in his right knee, on which he underwent arthroscopic surgery in July 2014. So far this season, Sabathia had his knee drained twice as well as received a cortisone shot that did not alleviate discomfort in his knee.

Hospital for Special Surgery's Joshua S. Dines, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and the assistant team physician for the Mets, commented that the next steps beyond another clean-out procedure could be microfracture surgery.

"According to the reports I read last year, that was discussed," said Dines, who isn’t treating Sabathia and hasn’t seen the test results. "Clearly there is some arthritis there."
