Sabathia's return date getting closer?

On Monday, Ian Begley of ESPN New York wrote that while injured starting pitchers CC Sabathia and Michael Pineda "are still 'a ways away' from returning to the mound, New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman doesn't see any options on the trade market to replace the two starters at the moment." But perhaps the team won't have to wait as long for Sabathia's return as they had feared.
