CC Sabathia will start on Friday night instead of David Phelps.

Phelps is not injured. In fact, from his perspective he wasn't even scratched. He knew he wasn't starting Friday and would go on Saturday. According to the players, Sabathia was always supposed to start Friday.

The reason for the confusion was due to a miscommunication between pitching coach Larry Rothschild and the media relations department on the order of the rotation.
