Christopher Pasatieri/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — C.C. Sabathia already knows when he’ll be returning from the disabled list.

“August 24,” Sabathia said on Monday. “That’s the day I’m pitching.”

Yankees manager Joe Girardi isn’t worried about Sabathia coming off the DL because in reality it’s only two starts that he’ll miss.

“I think it could be good for him just because of what he’s had to throw the last five or six years,” Girardi said. “Cash and myself, we have to make decisions that we feel are good not just for tomorrow but down the road, next month. It’s not easy putting your ace on the DL.”

When asked if Sabathia would be able to go on August 24, Girardi was confident.

“CC would go out there with a broken body part if you let him,” Girardi said. “That’s what you want out of a player. It’s difficult not having him out there, but we’ve got to find a way.”

Sabathia is 12-3 this season with a 3.56 ERA.
