Found August 11, 2012 on Reading Between The Seams:

Well this is concerning news for Yankees fans.

Girardi said CC will go on the DL.

— Mark Feinsand (@BloggingBombers) August 11, 2012

It seems that CC Sabathia is having elbow inflammation, but Girardi isn’t really concerned. Watching the YES post-game interviews, to paraphrase Girardi said that if this were October, then CC would take the mound on Monday.

It seems the Yankees are just playing it safe. The team sits 21 games over .500, and leads the Baltimore Orioles by 6.0 games. They’re going to need Sabathia to come back at 100% to secure the AL East Division.

Girardi has yet to schedule a starter for Monday, but I assume it would be David Phelps. Phelps sports a 2.42 ERA this season in 52.0 innings pitched. The rest of the rotation will also have to pick it up in Sabathia’s absence.
