Analysis: Manager Joe Girardi said Friday "that's about fair to say" Sabathia's season is over. The six-time All-Star left-hander has been out with a degenerative cartilage problem in his right knee. After making his second rehab start Wednesday, Sabathia experienced swelling the next morning.

Sabathia gave up two runs, three hits, walked one and struck out two for Single-A Tampa against Dunedin in a Florida State League game on Saturday night. He threw 36 pitches.
Analysis: The Yankees placed Sabathia on the 15-day DL May 11 because of inflammation in his right knee. It was later determined that he has a degenerative cartilage problem in the knee. Sabathia is 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA this season, with opponents hitting .301 off him. He is expected to need at least two rehab starts.

Sabathia says he had ''no issues'' during his 34-pitch outing Tuesday at the Yankees' minor league complex. He's scheduled to pitch in a rookie-level Gulf Coast League game on Saturday.
Analysis: The Yankees placed Sabathia on the 15-day DL May 11 because of inflammation in his right knee. Sabathia is 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA this season, with opponents hitting .301 off him.

Analysis: The left-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 11. He was examined by Dr. James Andrews last week and had his knee drained. Sabathia also received a cortisone and stem cell injection Thursday to treat a degenerative cartilage condition. The team confirmed Monday that the procedure means Sabathia likely will remain sidelined through at least the end of June, maybe longer. The 2007 AL Cy Young Award winner is 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA in eight starts.
|May 5 12:51 PM PT1:51 PM MT2:51 PM CT3:51 PM ET15:51 ET19:51 GMT3:51 12:51 PM MST2:51 PM EST3:21 PM VEN23:51 UAE2:51 PM CT-Sabathia struggled again Sunday and was chased in the fourth inning of a 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Sabathia (3-4) gave up 10 hits and five runs in 3 2-3 innings, his shortest start since lasting 2 2-3 innings on Oct. 2, 2009, at Tampa Bay. Consecutive defeats have swelled his ERA to 5.75 following a subpar season last year when his velocity dropped off.

Analysis: Sabathia struck out eight while allowing two runs on three hits in six innings. Anybody can pitch with this kind of run support but credit Sabathia for the win nevertheless. He faces the M's and old foe Robinson Cano next.
|Apr. 18 3:14 PM PT4:14 PM MT5:14 PM CT6:14 PM ET18:14 ET22:14 GMT6:14 3:14 PM MST5:14 PM EST5:44 PM VEN2:14 UAE (+1)5:14 PM CT-Sabathia pitched seven innings for a rare win at Tropicana Field, leading the New York Yankees past David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays 10-2 on Thursday night in a matchup of former AL Cy Young Award winners.
Analysis: Sabathia (2-2) allowed two runs and seven hits, improving to 2-7 with a 4.44 ERA in his 12 starts at Tropicana Field since joining the Yankees in 2009. He lowered his season ERA to 5.19.
|Apr. 12 2:04 PM PT3:04 PM MT4:04 PM CT5:04 PM ET17:04 ET21:04 GMT5:04 2:04 PM MST4:04 PM EST4:34 PM VEN1:04 UAE (+1)4:04 PM CT-Sabathia was shaky in Friday's loss to Boston, yielding four runs and six hits over seven innings, though he struck out nine.
Analysis: All four runs allowed came on home runs from Grady Sizemore and Jonny Gomes. He's allowed five home runs over 19 innings in three starts thus far.
|Apr. 7 12:42 PM PT1:42 PM MT2:42 PM CT3:42 PM ET15:42 ET19:42 GMT3:42 12:42 PM MST2:42 PM EST3:12 PM VEN23:42 UAE2:42 PM CT-Sabathia earned his first win Sunday.
Analysis: Sabathia allowed four runs and seven hits, walked none and struck out six, bouncing back from Tuesday's opening day loss at Houston, when he allowed six runs and eight hits, including two home runs, in six innings.
|Apr. 2 1:00 PM PT2:00 PM MT3:00 PM CT4:00 PM ET16:00 ET20:00 GMT4:00 1:00 PM MST3:00 PM EST3:30 PM VEN0:00 UAE (+1)3:00 PM CT-Sabathia was rocked in his fantasy opener Tuesday.
Analysis: Sabathia was tagged for six runs over six innings, with all the scoring coming in the first two. He was known for serving up gopher balls a year ago and Astros unknowns Jesus Guzman and L.J. Hoes went deep off him in an ominous sign.
|Feb. 14 11:47 AM PT12:47 PM MT1:47 PM CT2:47 PM ET14:47 ET19:47 GMT3:47 12:47 PM MST2:47 PM EST3:17 PM VEN23:47 UAE1:47 PM CT-Sabathia has reported to spring training at a slimmed-down 275 pounds, 40 below his high.
Analysis: The 33-year-old left-hander was 14-13 last year and set career highs for ERA at 4.78 and home runs allowed with 28. He gave up 122 runs, the most in the major leagues. Sabathia said Friday he decided to lose the weight after a cousin, Demetrius Davis, died of a heart attack at age 45 in December 2012. Sabathia dropped most of the pounds last year plus an additional 5 during the offseason

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.
