Sabathia says DL decision for knee was easy call

After trying to push through pain in his arthritic right knee a year ago, Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia said Tuesday he didn't want to make the same mistake this year and that's why he went on the 10-day disabled list Monday.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Gary Sánchez says he hasn't really felt pain from his groin injury since the week after he re-aggravated it on July 23. He still hasn't run with 100 percent effort on the field yet, nor has he hit on a field yet. While he says he's feeling good right now, he contends the real tests will come when he's actually in a game situations (i.e., having to beat out a ground ball).

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Of his DL stint, CC Sabathia says he told Aaron Boone he could've pushed through his next start, but he could tell he probably would've been down for the one that came after that. Feels this is good timing. The inflammation in his right knee really flared up in the past two starts, Sabathia said. Today, it feels better and the swelling is down. He'll likely play catch tomorrow.

Severino's struggles continue in Yankees' loss

Luis Severino's answer was a simple one after he dropped another game Monday night, this time to the Mets in a make-up of a game that was rained out at Yankee Stadium: He just has to get better.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Boone says CC Sabathia likely will miss just one start, and that he had to "kind of grind through" his outing Sunday. The Yankees haven't finalized anything, but Boone anticipates Luis Cessa will be called up to take Sabathia's turn in the rotation.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Boone on Luis Severino's recent struggles: "We gotta help him get to the bottom of this. We gotta get this righted."
