Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia will have arthroscopic surgery Friday to repair a small meniscus tear in his right knee.

The Yankees said Wednesday that team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad will perform the procedure at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Sabathia is to begin his pre-spring training routine three to six weeks after the operation.

He was 21-7 with a 3.18 ERA in his second season with the Yankees, then was 2-0 with a 5.63 ERA in three postseason starts.
