Update: Brian Cashman says CC Sabathia (knee) not expected back until July, at the earliest.
Another blow to both the Yankees and Sabathia owners hoping for a comeback. Maybe things will turn around for him in the second half, but you'll simply have to stash him and wait it out. Meanwhile, the Yankees are trudging through with David Phelps and Chase Whitley to help them get through these troubled times. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
