Before the Yankees completed a 3-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians yesterday the news broke that ace CC Sabathia was headed for the 15-DL. And if that wasn’t enough to swallow during the 5th inning, veteran southpaw Andy Pettitte took a line drive off his left lower leg; and everyone in Yankee Stadium froze. Pettitte threw just one more pitch; a perfect strike but the 40-year old southpaw would have to leave the game immediately following. And now the Yankees will be sans Pettitte for a minimum of 6 weeks as he fractured his left fibula. So in less than 24-hours, the Yankees lost not one but two aces in their starting rotation. What does this mean for the Yankees? As Skipper Joe Girardi so eloquently put it in the postgame, “Guys are going to have to step it up.” And I could not agree more with Girardi’s statement, as I do believe that this team has the talent to brave this storm; and a few weeks ago my sentiments would have been different.(...)Read the rest of New York Yankees: C...

Pettitte Leaves Game After Taking Grounder Off Leg

Andy Pettitte was forced to leave today’s game vs the Indians in the fifth inning after getting hit on the lower left leg by a hard grounder.

With CC now headed for the DL, the last thing this team can afford is to lose another one of their top starters. Check back here for updates...

3 things Yankees fans need to worry about regarding CC’s injury

English: CC Sabathia (Photo credit: Wikipedia) At the start of the 2012 season, I asked my father, ‘what could be the worst thing to happen to the New York Yankees this season?’ He responded without even taking a breath, “CC Sabathia getting injured.” So when the news broke, prior to today’s third and final afternoon romp with the Cleveland Indians, that CC Sabathia was...

Yankees Game 74 Lineup: 06/27/12

The Yankees look to sweep the Tribe this afternoon as they send Andy Pettitte to the mound.

New York Yankees Lose Sabathia, Pettitte

Remember at the beginning of spring training when the New York Yankees had more rotation depth than any team in baseball? A lot can change in five months and the Yankees went from having a wealth of rotation depth to the equivalent of one of those houses the two guys from American Pickersvisit on the routine basis — rundown and shattered. Big CC will be on the shelf for two weeks...

New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation and pain in his elbow.

New York Yankees' left-hander CC Sabathia was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left adductor muscle. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sabathia is likely to return after the All-Star break and would miss only two starts. An MRI revealed a Grade 1 strain.

C.C. Sabathia and Andy Pettite Go Down With Injury, Red Sox Look to Take Advantage

Losing one All-Star pitcher is difficult enough. Losing two in the same day? That just seems unfair. On Wednesday the New York Yankees learned that they would be without the services of ace C.C. Sabathia for at least two turns in the rotation due to a pulled leg muscle, and will also lose Andy Pettite for at least six weeks after taking a Casey Kotchman liner off his leg. If you...

Sabathia, Pettitte Latest Victims of ALE Injury Bug

Pitchers get hurt all the time, but I think we can all agree that CC Sabathia was on the short list of guys who we would expect to make every start in a given season. He’s been a workhorse of the first order for the last decade, but yesterday a twinge in his left groin sent him to the disabled list for the third time in his career and first time since 2006. The Yankees insist that...

Yanks call up Warren to start for injured Sabathia

The New York Yankees have purchased the contract of right-hander Adam Warren from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre, and he'll take ace CC Sabathia's turn in the rotation Friday for his first big league start.
