Yankees activate C.C. Sabathia from injured list

The Yankees activated left-hander CC Sabathia from the 10-day injured list on Saturday, and he is scheduled to start the afternoon game against the Chicago White Sox.

Sabathia, a 38-year-old lefty, hasn't pitched yet in 2019 as he continued his recovery from offseason knee surgery and angioplasty.

He was on the active roster earlier in the season to serve a five-game suspension - a holdover from last season.

An 18-year veteran, Sabathia has announced this will be his final season.

In a corresponding move, the Yankees sent left-handed reliever Stephen Tarpley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

Tarpley, 26, had pitched three innings over four games for the Yankees this season, giving up two earned runs and striking out three.
