Yankees | CC Sabathia lacks velocity

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia didn't crank his fastball consistently past 91 mph during his opening day start Monday, April 1, and he allowed four runs in the second inning and had 102 pitches by the fifth inning. He allowed four runs and eight hits while walking four and striking out five in five frames on the day against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: The low velocity shouldn't be a red flag unless it continues to be a problem after his next couple of starts. Remember, he is coming off surgery to clean up his throwing elbow, so he may be slow out of the gates.
