MILWAUKEE (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Yankees have placed struggling starter CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right knee.
Sunday’s comes a day after the left-hander allowed three home runs in a no-decision against the Brewers. Milwaukee won 5-4.
Sabathia is 3-4 with a 5.28 ERA. Opponents are hitting .301 off him this season.
Right-hander Matt Daley was called up from Triple-A Scranton to take Sabathia’s spot on the roster. Sabathia’s next start was to have been Thursday night against the Mets at Citi Field in the Subway Series.
The Yankees were wrapping up a three-game series with Milwaukee on Sunday.
The injury is the latest blow dealt to the Yankees’ rotation. Ivan Nova is out for the season after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last month. And Michael Pineda is on the DL with with a right shoulder injury. It’s unclear when he’ll return.
