New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has been placed on the 10-day injured list with right knee inflammation.
The team announced it Thursday before the finale of the four-game series against the Baltimore Orioles. Sabathia pitched five innings against on Wednesday night and complained about knee soreness afterward.
He earned the victory despite allowing five runs and six hits. After the game, the 38-year-old Sabathia described it as “a shooting pain goes through every time that I land.”
Sabathia has started eight games, going 3-1 with a 3.48 ERA, striking out 34 in 41 1/3 innings.
He joins a list of prominent Yankees on the IL, including Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Didi Gregorius, Dellin Betances and Troy Tulowitzki.
