In his first remarks to media since seeking treatment, Sabathia told ABC "it was just the time."
Analysis: An excerpt from the interview was posted Thursday ABC's website. The network says the interview will be broadcast Friday on "Good Morning America." Sabathia says "I know it was a bad time of the season, but there was no other option for me but to get help. And I understand where, you know, fans would be upset and people don't understand, but it's a disease." The 35-year-old left-hander was 6-10 with a 4.73 ERA this season, slowed by a chronic knee injury.

Sabathia, the 2007 AL Cy Young Award winner, said he took the step to receive the care he needs and become the kind of person ''I can be proud of.''

The team provided no other update.

Analysis: He struck out eight and walked none in 5 2-3 innings, allowing five runs. Looking past the numbers, the big lefty threw his fastball 88-90 mph but had good downward tilt on his slider. "He didn't give up any hard hits," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "They just found some holes."
