• Breaking: Yankees put Sabathia on DL

    Big news ahead of this afternoon’s finale with the Indians: the Yankees have announced that they’ve placed C.C. Sabathia on the 15 day disabled list with a strained left adductor muscle (in his upper leg). Sabathia indicated that he began feeling pain during his last start Sunday night at Citi Field, but didn’t say anything about it until after his bullpen session yesterday. The good news is that it’s merely a Grade I strain, and the plan according to Joe Girardi is for Sabathia to miss two starts and return after the All-Star break.
