As if the last place Yankees don't have enough problems, starter CC Sabathia is joining Alex Rodriguez on the disabled list. Sabathia has a strained left groin. Sabathia pitched his best game of the year on Wednesday, throwing seven scoreless innings against the Orioles to snap a six-game Yankee losing streak. Sabathia will likely be replaced by Ivan Nova in the rotation. Reliever Phil Coke is being called up from Triple-A.
