New York Yankees Rotation Thins Out Quickly
Earlier today the Yankees found out that they would be sending C.C. Sabathia to the DL for 15 days with a strained groin. After that news broke, Andy Pettitte took the mound against the Cleveland Indians. In the midst of throwing a gem, Pettitte took a line drive off of his ankle. He threw one more pitch before being pulled from the game and being diagnosed with a fractured ankle. Pettitte will miss at least six weeks.
A rotation that lost Michael Pineda before the season now has two serious holes to fill, hopefully only temporary. Adam Warren will take Sabathia's spot in the rotation and Freddy Garcia will take Pettitte's spot. If either were to falter, David Phelps and D.J. Mitchell are waiting in the wings. The Yankees also had scouts at Zack Grienke's start for the Brewers today, so take that as you will.
