As I blogged this past Thursday, CC Sabathia had arthroscopic surgery performed on his right knee to repair a minor meniscus tear. The surgery was performed at New York Presbyterian hospital by Yankees team physician, Dr. Chris Ahmad.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi revealed Friday what most in the media and fan base had already assumed: Sabathia's knee was an issue during the 2010 season. However, according to Girardi, "there was never a start that was in question because of [it]."
Sabathia is expected to begin rehabilitation immediately. If all goes as planned, he should be ready to workout in 3-6 weeks to prepare for Spring Training.

So, the Sabathia "knee watch" is officially on. Stay tuned...
