NEW YORK (AP) - Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has had surgery on his troublesome right knee.

New York head team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad performed the arthroscopic procedure Tuesday at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. The team described it as “a routine cleanup” and said Sabathia is expected to be ready for spring training.

A 36-year-old left-hander, Sabathia pitched with a brace on the knee this year and went 9-12 with a 3.91 ERA, his lowest ERA since 2012.

He is due $25 million next year, the final season of his contract.
