Peter Abraham of The Journal News reported that CC Sabathia threw 28 pitches in a simulated game to Kevin Cash and Hideki Matsui, who alternated at-bats.
Sabathia makes his spring debut Friday night against the Tigers at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
“It was the first time throwing to guys without a screen up and it felt good,” Sabathia said.
According to Abraham’s report, Sabathia was working on getting his cutter down in the strike zone, which he added is usually the last pitch to come around in the spring. Judging by the hitters’ reaction, Sabathia’s fastball was where it needed to be.
