Girardi just said on WFAN that Sabathia woke up today with fluid in knee and prob headed for MRI. Unsure what's next for him. #yankeesThat's the whole story as far as we know right now and it isn't good. After pitching on short rest and throwing 55 pitches in his second MiL rehab start last night, CC Sabathia woke up this morning with fluid in his surgically-repaired and recently stem cell/cortisone-injected degenerative right knee. He's going for an MRI to assess the level of damage and severity and as of right now his comeback plans are on hold.

More on this story as it comes out...
** 4:49 PM- Via multiple beat guys and gals, Girardi said there was "swelling" in CC's right knee as well. This doesn't sound at all like it's going to have a happy ending. **
