NEW YORK (AP) -- CC Sabathia could be on the New York Yankees' roster for the AL Championship Series after missing the previous round with an achy left shoulder.

The left-hander sat out New York's three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins in the AL Division Series, but manager Aaron Boone says Sabathia is feeling "considerably better."

The 39-year-old Sabathia impressed Boone while throwing a bullpen session Wednesday. Boone says Sabathia is an option for the ALCS, but the Yankees haven't decided on their roster. The 19-year veteran plans to retire after the season.

Relief pitchers Aroldis Chapman and Zack Britton are expected to be 100% for the ALCS.

Boone also says outfielder Aaron Hicks has recovered from a right elbow flexor strain. Hicks is healthy enough to play, but Boone says there is "trepidation" about activating him because he hasn't played in a game since Aug. 3.
