Sabathia Says He'll Pitch on Friday

From George King:
CC Sabathia will throw his first bullpen session since going on the disabled list today and said he believes he will return Friday in Cleveland.

While manager Joe Girardi would certainly welcome the Yankees’ staff ace back to the rotation the first day Sabathia is eligible, he is waiting to see how the big left-hander does during workouts .

“I will do a bullpen [session today], be off [tomorrow], play catch Monday, another bullpen Tuesday and pitch Friday,’’ Sabathia said following a flat-ground throwing program yesterday afternoon. “I feel good.’’
Girardi also said in the article that he doesn't have a date set for CC's return and is waiting to see how his bullpen goes, but assuming all goes well we'll see Sabathia on Friday or Saturday.
