Sabathia feels good after bullpen session
KANSAS CITY -- CC Sabathia said he felt fine after throwing a bullpen session on Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium and is eyeing a July 17 return to the Yankees rotation.

Sabathia missed two starts before the All-Star break with a groin strain, but said he hasn't been bothered since the first week after he suffered the injury in a June 24 start against the Mets at Citi Field.

"I'll be ready. I feel pretty good," Sabathia said. "My arm feels great, I haven't felt the injury. I would assume that I'll go out and be ready to go."

Sabathia said that he expects to throw about 60 pitches in a simulated game on Friday at Yankee Stadium, which would put him in line to get back into the Yankees' starting five to face the Blue Jays in the Bronx.
