Yankees | GM acknowledges lack of velocity for CC Sabathia

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said SP CC Sabathia usually has a lower velocity in April and suggested that he's probably still building arm strength. However, Cashman said his lack of velocity isn't related to the elbow surgery he had in the offseason. Cashman said it may take until May to increase the mph on his fastball.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia has habitually been a slow starter, so this shouldn't be too much of a surprise. However, if his lower velocity sticks around into May, you might want to start worrying. For now, continue starting him as you normally would.
