Yanks notes: CC Sabatbia to throw soon

CC to throw soon

CC Sabathia is planning to resume throwing while standing later this week.

Sabathia, who went on the disabled list May 11 with right knee inflammation, had a cortisone and stem-cell injection in the knee soon after. He has been walking on a low-impact treadmill for several days and throwing from a chair.

"Were just taking it further each day with more and more stuff and trying to see if its going to swell up," Sabathia said Monday. "I have no pain so far, so hopefully start throwing some time this week and go from there."

Sabathia, who said he got some advice from Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire who has had a similar procedure is scheduled to return near the beginning of July.

Teix gets good news

There was some good news on Mark Teixeira (inflamed right wrist) following Monday nights loss.

Joe Girardi said doctors gave "pretty good news" on Teixeira but the manager wouldnt commit on whether the first baseman would return tonight.

Teixeira, who received a cortisone shot in the surgically repaired wrist Saturday after leaving a game with lingering pain, was hoping to see improvement today. If he doesnt, there could be cause for concern.
