BY foxsports • October 5, 2016

NEW YORK (AP) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia will have surgery on his troublesome right knee.

New York general manager Brian Cashman described the procedure as a ''cleanup'' and ''it's not something of concern.'' Cashman said Wednesday the operation will take place in the next week.

Sabathia, a 36-year-old left-hander, pitched with a brace on the knee this year. He went 9-12 with a 3.91 ERA, his lowest ERA since 2012.
