After rolling his left ankle during practice, CC Sabathia wants everyone to calm down. There is nothing to worry about.
"It was during PFPs [pitchers fielding practice] and I was fielding a ball," he told The Post's George A. King III. "I am good now."
Sabathia was seen with wrap around his rolled ankle, though, which begged the question of whether or not it was really ok. He just said head trainer Steve Donohue loves practicing his work at Spring Training too.
"Because Steve likes to put wraps on," Sabathia said jokingly.
It is natural for the media to ask about the 37-year-old lefty when they see something that looks like an injury. He has been injury prone recently with his knee being the major issue. GM Brian Cashman brought him back this season on a one-year, $10 million deal that includes $2 million in performance bonuses.
Sabathia pitched to a surprising 14-5 record with a 3.68 ERA in 27 starts, and his postseason play was outstanding especially in Game 5 of the ALDS with the Indians.
His health is a top priority this season, as the Yankees want to keep their middle man in the rotation on the mound. Cashman, though, backs Sabathia in the ankle not being anything to worry about.
"Not a concern," he said.
