NEW YORK (AP) - Any hopes the New York Yankees had of CC Sabathia returning to their ravaged rotation this year are over.
General manager Brian Cashman says Sabathia will have season-ending surgery on his right knee Wednesday. Cashman says indications are the left-hander will be ready for spring training next year, but there are no guarantees.
The team had all but ruled out Sabathia returning in 2014 after he had a setback early this month during his minor league rehab assignment.
One positive is that Sabathia will not have microfracture surgery, which would require a longer recovery. Cashman says the operation will be performed by Los Angeles Dodgers head physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache.
In other news, designated hitter Carlos Beltran has been activated from the seven-day concussion list. He is penciled in to bat sixth Friday night against Cincinnati.
