According to ESPN New York, the New York Yankees have placed CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list. He is diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain of the adductor muscle near his left leg. Sabathia will not be available for the All-Star Game. It is reported that he first felt the pain in the fourth inning of his last start on Sunday night. He didn’t tell anyone at the time and completed five and two-thirds of an inning worth of work. He received a no-decision, as the Yankees won the game against the New York Mets 6-5.
Freddy Garcia will replace the Yankees’ ace temporarily. Sabathia is currently 9-3 with a 3.45 ERA.
