MLB: NY Yankees' Pitcher C.C. Sabathia Gets 200th Career Win

Jul 4 2013, 12:59am CDT | by

New York Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia earned his 200th career win New York's 3-2 win over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.

Chalk up 200 career wins for the New York Yankees' C.C. Sabathia.

Sabathia was able to secure the milestone on Wednesday against the Minnesota Twins thanks to a three-run sixth inning that featured second baseman Robinson Cano's two-run double and first baseman Lyle Overbay's go-ahead sac fly which secured the 3-2 victory. 

MLB.com's Bryan Hoch points out Sabathia becomes the 27th pitcher and only the eighth since 1961 to win 200 games before reaching the age of 33. He joins the ranks of Don Drysdale, Catfish Hunter, Ferguson Jenkins, Greg Maddux, Juan Marichal, Jim Palmer and Tom Seaver.  

Prior to the four-game set against the Twins which saw the Yankees winning the first three, New York lost five in a row to close out the month of June. 

With the victory, Sabathia also extended his winning streak against Minnesota to almost six years. In the last 11 outings against the Twins, he has posted an 11-0 record with a 2.01 ERA. He also apparently didn't think too much of win No. 200. 

"It's hard not to be aware of it, but I don't know if it means anything right now. I'll be ready in five days to go again and just try to get No. 201."

Sabathia uncorked a season-high 121 pitches during the game. He says his fastball, which used to clock in the upper 90s, is a work in progress.

"I think it's still a work in progress. I think you're always trying to get better and trying to reinvent yourself. I've still got some work to do, but hopefully I can just keep getting better."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi certainly thinks Sabathia earned the accolade. 

"He's been huge. You think about all the wins that he's had, and I'm glad to get that out of the way for him. I don't like milestones. Players are going to think about it, and people are going to ask him about it. For C.C., I think it's great. He's been huge for this organization."

Sabathia's milestone comes just two days after 41-year-old teammate Andy Pettitte surpassed Whitey Ford as the Yankee's all-time career leader in strikeouts with 1,958.

Sabathia To Undergo Arthroscopic Surgery, Miss Rest Of Season

Jul 18 2014 4:09pm CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

JULY 18: Sabathia will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on July 18 and miss the rest of the season, Cashman told reporters, including Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (on Twitter). While it’s bad news for the Yankees, it’s not as bad as it could’ve been, as the arthroscopic surgery is less severe than microfracture surgery. Nonetheless, it’s tough to imagine the Yankees overcoming the loss of Sabathia, Ivan Nova and potentially Masahiro Tanaka fo ...

Is This the End for C.C. Sabathia?

Jul 13 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

The ride can't last forever, all things must come to an end, Father Time catches up to us all; these are just some of the clichés that come to mind when discussing the end of an athlete's run. In this case, it's New York Yankees starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia. No, he hasn't made any sort of retirement announcement. In fact, he might not for a couple more years. That said, after his worst season to date in 2013 and a premature end to 2014, the writing may ...

Though Byron Buxton has only played in six games this season due to a wrist injury, the Twins outfielder still sits atop Baseball America’s midseason ranking of the top 50 prospects in the sport.  Twenty-two of the 30 Major League teams have at least one player on the list, and the Cubs stand out with three players in the top seven — Kris Bryant at #2, the newly-acquired Addison Russell at #5 and Javier Baez at #7.
