"It's no big deal," Sabathia told the Daily News in a text message. "I'll be ready to throw by December 1 like always."I know some of you are very concerned by this, but I'm not. It seems very minor. If he has another knee injury next season, then I'll start to worry. A lot.
Sabathia will begin therapy immediately after the surgery, according to the Yankees. The lefthander is scheduled to begin his regular routine in preparation for spring training between 3-6 weeks after the surgery, which goes with the timetable the pitcher described.
"It's been nagging me all year," Sabathia said. "It never affected me on the mound, just the days after my start."
