Skinny CC Sabathia has been one of the most discussed topics at New York Yankees training camp this month, and deservedly so. Sabathia looks like he has lost a ton of weight, which is something he says he committed to doing after his cousin died young because of heart disease.
If you thought CC was barely recognizable in jeans and a hoodie, have a look at him in his baseball uniform. Sabathia has always been known to wear baggy clothes, but he sure did look slender while getting some work in on Friday.
Sabathia lost a lot of velocity on his fastball when he shed some weight heading into last season, but he said he did not go about the weight loss the way he should have. While it’s always nice to see such a big guy slim down a bit, Yankees fans are probably nervous about how Sabathia’s new body will respond on the mound.
