Sabathia to return at end of the rotation
C.C. Sabathia is slated to return from the disabled list soon after the All-Star game this coming Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean that you should expect to see him immediately following the break. Instead, Sabathia will return at the back end of the team’s first turn through the rotation, according to Brian Cashman. He would be slated to start in the Yankees second series of the second half, against the Toronto Blue Jays. That would give Sabathia 3-4 more days to heal his strained groin, while allowing the Yankees to continue to carry 14 position players for a few extra days as well.
