CC Sabathia: Sabathia has been sidelined due to right knee pain, an injury that has hampered the left-hander in the past. As he looks to make a return to the mound, the Yankees anticipate that the veteran will throw a bullpen session at some point this weekend.

Luis Severino is still scheduled to throw off a mound on Friday in Toronto. He told me he is expected to in between 20-30 pitches (fastball and change). #yankees
The 25-year-old has once again started throwing breaking pitches. He is expected to throw a bullpen session on Friday in Toronto. If all goes well, Severino will throw another bullpen session on Monday.
Giancarlo Stanton: Stanton does not appear close to a return, but is making progress towards more strenuous baseball activities.
Giancarlo Stanton was able to throw and hit off a tee. He’s been running on the anti-gravity treadmill, too.
Torres has been dealing with “core issues” as of late. Prior to Wednesday’s game, it appeared as if the 22-year-old was heading to the Injured List, as Thairo Estrada made an appearance in the Yankees clubhouse.
Gleyber Torres’ tests all came back negative, Aaron Boone said. An MRI showed no sports hernia or strains so Gleyber is now day-to-day and will travel to Toronto with the team.
