The Baltimore Sun

The Orioles will face New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia on Friday night instead of right-hander David Phelps, who had previously been listed as the starter.

Sabathia had been listed to pitch Saturday.

Sabathia is 8-5 with a 4.09 ERA in 16 starts this year. In two starts against the Orioles, he’s 1-0 and has allowed six runs (five earned) on 19 hits in 14 1/3 innings. He’s struck out 11 Orioles in the two starts.

For his career, Sabathia is 17-4 with a 3.12 ERA in 27 career starts against the Orioles. He’s shutout the Orioles twice, and his .810 winning percentage is the second-highest against any team he’s started against at least 10 times. He’s 18-4 against the Chicago White Sox.

This season, the Orioles are batting .273 against left-handed pitchers with 23 home runs and 99 runs scored.

Orioles left-hander T.J. McFarland is still scheduled to make his first career major league start Friday night.
