C.C. Sabathia's season is over and maybe even his career.
The veteran starting pitcher will have season-ending surgery on his right knee, which has a degenerative condition in his meniscus and could be career-threatening.
Sabathia hasn't pitched since May 10 and he re-injured the knee during his second rehab start with Trenton. The 34-year-old helped the Yankees win the 2009 World Series and was one of the best pitchers in baseball from 2009-2012 before injuries began to take its toll on his 6'7, 285-pound frame.
Sabathia was just 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA this season in what was supposed to be a bounce back year from 2013 when he finished 14-13 with a 4.78 ERA. Sabathia has a career record of 208-119 with a 3.63 ERA with 2,437 strikeouts in 2,821.1 innings in stops in Cleveland, Milwaukee and New York.
