New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia had arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur in his left elbow on Thursday and is expected to be ready for spring training. So Sabathia, the Yankees’ ace, had arthroscopic surgery on Thursday to remove the spur and clean out the elbow. "They found a small bone spur," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. Sabathia received a diagnosis of inflammation of his left elbow in August, doctors felt that a bone spur, which had existed in the joint since before he became a Yankee in 2009, had finally surfaced to cause trouble. "He hadn't given us any complaints on the elbow, but we were going to have it checked either way," Cashman said. Sabathia went 15-6 with a 3.38 ERA in 28 starts and posted a 1.53 ERA in two AL Division Series wins over the Orioles before a rough outing against the Tigers in the final game of the ALCS.When C. C.
