NEW YORK -- Yankees ace CC Sabathia will have his pitching elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews following inflammation that landed him on the disabled list in August.

An MRI showed a bone spur in the left elbow and the Yankees believe it has existed since he pitched for the Cleveland Indians from 2001-08.

"Yeah, you have to be concerned, because like I've said, I've never had any problems with the elbow before," Sabathia said outside Yankee Stadium on Saturday, according to the New York Daily News. "We have to wait and see ... It's something that I've not felt before, never had, so it's best to go get it checked out and go from there."

Also Saturday, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter had surgery to repair a broken left ankle. Dr. Robert Anderson operated in Charlotte, N.C., and the Yankees said complete recovery for their 38-year-old captain is expected to take four-to-five months.

Jeter was injured last Saturday in the 12th inning of Game 1 of the AL championship series against Detroit while trying to field a grounder. The Tigers went on to sweep the Yankees.
