The Yankees have signed right-handed pitcher Derek Lowe, reports Marc Carig of The Star-Leger. The 39-year-old was released by the Cleveland Indians earlier this week. Lowe has a 5.52 ERA in 21 starts (8-10) for the Indians this season, including an 8.80 ERA in his last dozen starts. Lowe has agreed to pitch out of the bullpen.
Because the Indians flat out released him, the Yankees will only owe the veteran right-hander the pro-rated portion of the league minimum.

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...
So apparently a lot happened while I was eating an early dinner....
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.
