Lady Loves Pinstripes:
The New York Yankees left Canada with a series win against a battered Toronto Blue Jays but lost their ace CC Sabathiato the 15-day DL with a sore left elbow.

This is the second time Sabathia has been injured in 2012, but the first time it was his groin, and not his throwing arm’s elbow.
You don’t need to be Einstein to figure out why Sabathia’s injury is worrisome, as he is a pitcher and it is his elbow.
So, what did the Yankees do?
What the Yankees always do, which is run and grab some washed-up veteran that no other team wants.
And this time it is pitcher Derek Lowe, who was just released from the Indians after he lost eight of his last 10 starts and posted an ERA just shy of 9.00.
GM Brian Cashman is once again banking on the nostalgia of the Yankee pinstripes to resurge a 39-year old player’s career; but in my opinion Lowe’s case is a long shot.
Point blank is that Lowe is done.
In case you for...
BEST OF MAXIM
After designating him for assignment last week, the Cleveland Indians announced Friday that they have released veteran Derek Lowe.
The 39-year-old was just 2-8 with an 8.80 ERA in 12 starts since May 26 after a hot start to the season for the regressing Tribe. The team had 10 days to trade or release him, with no real likelihood existing for him to accept an assignment to AAA Columbus...
From Dan Martin:
The Yankees made Derek Lowe’s signing official Monday and the veteran right-hander is expected to be added to the bullpen for the series opener against the Rangers in The Bronx.
Ryota Igarashi was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre to make room for Lowe on the roster.Lowe, who went 8-10 with a 5.52 ERA in 21 starts with the Indians, will be used...
The Yankees signed Derek Lowe to a major league contract on Monday and said they planned to use the right-hander in the bullpen.
Lowe, a 39-year-old sinkerballer, has spent time as a reliever, but mostly has pitched in the rotation for various teams, most recently the Indians. Cleveland designated him for assignment on Aug. 2 and released him on Friday.
Lowe has a 4.01 ERA in 655...

First, the Yankees announced that CC Sabathia is going on the 15-day DL with left elbow soreness. “As for our concern, it’s pretty low-level,” Joe Girardi said.
Sabathia had his left arm iced before today’s game, which is not overly unusual for a pitcher. Girardi said pregame that it was a non-issue...
Derek Lowe spent his weekend thinking about how exciting it was going to be to get back on a major league mound after agreeing to terms with the New York Yankees. On Monday, he got that chance. Lowe pitched four scoreless innings to close out the Yankees' 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers, picking up his first save since 2001. "You just keep going, and every inning, they...
Yankees Acquire Derek Lowe
The New York Yankees wasted no time finding another arm to pitch while C.C Sabathia is on the DL with elbow inflammation acquiring the 39 year old Derek Lowe.
Lowe was pitching for the Cleveland Indians before being designated for assignment on Saturday. He wasn’t pitching very well for the Indians in their rotation going 8-10 with...
New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia might miss his next start because of soreness in his left elbow. The New York Daily News reported that Sabathia's elbow has been sore since his last outing against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. He allowed five runs (three earned) and struck out seven batters over 6 2/3 innings in the win. Sabathia was seen with an ice pack on his left elbow...
Well this is concerning news for Yankees fans.
Girardi said CC will go on the DL.

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...
Yankees suffered another injury blow to the team as ace C.C Sabathia will be heading to the 15 day disabled list for the second time this season. Sabathia will be heading to the DL this time due to stiffness in his elbow. The elbow first started acting up in Seattle, and continued to give him [...]

With Yankees ace CC Sabathia placed on the DL with elbow inflammation, long-reliever rookie David Phelps slips into the Yankees rotation with a great shot of giving fantasy owners some spot starts while flashing a high K-rate and with an elite offense behind him.
