Manager Joe Girardi said he would be "shocked" it CC Sabathia (knee) is back when his 15 day DL window is up. He is actually still on crutches.
This is looking like an injury that will keep the not-so-big-as-he-once-was fella on the sidelines for a while. He is dealing with what has been labeled "degenerative changes" to his knee, and has already taken a cortisone shot and will be receiving stem cell treatment as well. How his knee responds is the key, obviously, but I would not count out a return to respectability when he gets healthy, so don't just cut him.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
