Minneapolis, MN ( - New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia could miss the rest of the season because of an ailing right knee.

Sabathia last started for the Yankees on May 10 and underwent an MRI exam on Thursday after swelling developed in his knee following a rehab start at Double-A Trenton on Wednesday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Friday that Sabathia is set to visit Dr. James Andrews on July 14 and that surgery is possible.

"The MRI didn't reveal anything new," said Girardi prior to Friday's game against Minnesota. "They've got to talk about it and decide what's best."

Sabathia has a degenerative knee condition and could need microfracture surgery, which involves a lengthy rehab process.

Asked if Sabathia's season was in jeopardy, Girardi responded that it was "probably fair to say."

Sabathia has struggled to a record of 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA in eight starts this season.
