Yan­kees pitcher CC Sa­bathia has had surgery on his trou­ble­some right knee.

New York head team physi­cian Dr. Christo­pher Ah­mad per­formed the arthro­scopic pro­ce­dure Tues­day at New York-Pres­by­te­rian Hos­pi­tal.

The team de­scribed it as “a rou­tine cleanup” and said Sa­bathia is ex­pected to be ready for spring training.

A 36-year-old left-han­der, Sa­bathia pitched with a brace on the knee this year and went 9-12 with a 3.91 ERA, his low­est ERA since 2012.

He is due $25 mil­lion next year, the fi­nal sea­son of his con­tract.
