CC Sabathia with second straight poor outing

CC Sabathia allowed seven runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Orioles on Friday. Sabathia did strikeout six batters, but had two walks and created a lot of trouble with two outs. He has a 4.34 ERA this season and will face the Blue Jays on May 3.

Fantasy Impact

After opening the season with three consecutive quality starts, Sabathia has now allowed 11 runs in 10 2/3 innings over his last two starts. Sabathia has also allowed multiple home runs in back-to-back starts and has allowed five home runs in his last three starts after not allowing a home run in his first two starts. Current Blue Jays have a .620 OPS in 231 career at-bats against Sabathia, but Justin Smoak does have two home runs off of Sabathia.

CC Sabathia struggles through five innings

CC Sabathia allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings against the Pirates on Friday night. Sabathia, who was pulled for a pinch hitter in the top of the sixth, walked two batters and struck out three batters. He has a 2.70 ERA this season and will face the Red Sox in Boston in his next start.

Fantasy Impact

Sabathia posted three straight quality starts to open the season, but allowed two home runs in the first two innings and could never find his rhythm. His 2.70 ERA and 1.20 WHIP are still good, but his lack of strikeouts (14 in 23 1/3 innings) limits his fantasy value. Current Red Sox have a .657 OPS in 168 career at-bats against Sabathia.

CC Sabathia dominates Cardinals

CC Sabathia allowed one run on three hits in 7 1/3 innings on Saturday against the Cardinals, earning his second win of the season. Sabathia took a shutout into the 8th inning before Jedd Gyorko hit a solo home run and he struck out six batters while allowing only one walk. He has a 1.47 ERA this season and will face the Pirates in Pittsburgh on April 21.

Fantasy Impact

Sabathia has opened the season with three consecutive quality starts and is undoubtably the best starting pitcher for the surprising Yankees, now on a six-game winning streak. He finished the 2016 season with a 2.27 ERA in September, showing that Sabathia has taken his adjustments from the end of 2016 to 2017. Sabathia has only faced one Pirates batter in his career, David Freese is 1-for-4 with a double, and he is 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA at PNC Park in his career.

CC Sabathia with a quality start

CC Sabathia registered the first quality start for a New York Yankees pitcher this season, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits in six innings. Sabathia struck out three batters and walked two, throwing 98 pitches. He has a 1.64 ERA this season and will face the Cardinals on Friday in New York.

Fantasy Impact

Sabathia has been the best SP for the Yankees this season and has a great run of performances since the end of the 2016 season. While he will not record double-digit strikeouts again like he did in the past, his ability to keep batters off the mark have made him a fantasy target once again. Current Cardinals batters only have 31 at-bats against Sabathia, but Jhonny Peralta is 1-for-17 with a double and Dexter Fowler is 2-for-5 with two doubles.

CC Sabathia shuts down Rays

CC Sabathia pitched five shutout innings against the Rays on Tuesday, allowing only three hits against Tampa Bay. Sabathia struck out two batters and walked two, providing a good bounce back after Masahiro Tanaka allowed seven runs on Opening Day. He will face the Orioles in Baltimore on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Sabathia controlled the strikezone and really was not in trouble at any point. While his strikeouts are down, Sabathia pitched well at the end of 2016 and now has put up a great performance to open the season. Orioles hitters have a career .748 OPS against Sabathia in 293 career at-bats, with Adam Jones posting a .929 OPS in 70 at-bats against the left-hander.
