TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - CC Sabathia is feeling stronger after dropping 25 pounds during the offseason.

The New York Yankees ace reported to spring training at 290 pounds after surgery in October to repair a minor tear in his right knee.

After warming up on a bullpen mound, Sabathia threw 25 pitches during his first batting practice session Thursday.

Sabathia, who went 21-7 with a 3.18 ERA in 34 starts last year, has had no problems with his knee since throwing off a mound at spring training last week.
