CC Sabathia gets on the mound

CC is back in action after some intestinal discomfort yesterday. He threw BP today. With exhibition games starting earlier this season, CC will not be in next week's rotation. The Yankees will hold Sabathia, Burnett, Wang and Pettitte back until late next week.

Posada, was impressed: "What I saw was just a heavy ball...The ball was coming good. I like the hesitation that he's got now in the middle of his windup; I think that helps him a little bit...I'm really excited."

CC threw fastballs, changeups and observers got a glimpse of his slider (which he perfected last season under the tutelage of formers Brewers pitching coach and brother of Greg Maddux, Mike Maddux). CC described the slider in his workout as "pretty good" which is always good for Feb 21st

The big guy can learn a lot from Pettitte and Posada about the winning culture from the teams that went all the way.
