New York Yankees: Significant Reasons Why You Should Remain Optimistic

CC Sabathia Has Re-Invented Himself

CC Sabathia’s standard numbers don’t reflect how good the big lefty has been.

Despite his 5.06 ERA, Sabathia has finally adjusted to his decreased velocity that sat in mostly in 80’s his last time out, but he followed up his first win against the Detroit Tigers with four innings of no-run ball against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

Manager Joe Girardi believed he had enough to win the game, and it’s hard not to agree with him. His cutter has been running in and eating up righties while his slider and changeup have been effective on lefties.

Through his first two starts of 2016, the former CY-Young award winner has proven that he’s capable of going six innings while keeping his team in the ballgame.

From a number five starter, that’s just what the Yankees need.
