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
Antonio Smith may sit out practice this week.
Smith is the subject of a child abuse investigation in Texas. The case has been dragging on for some time now, with the DA sifting through the report from the Fort Bend County Sheriff since February. Even if the case is ultimately dropped by the prosecutor, Smith could still face discipline from the league as part of its effort to improve its public image, as part of the personal conduct policy under the CBA between the players union and the league.

Avisail Garcia left Monday's game with a knee injury.
Garcia left after less than two innings of action on Monday. He was coming off a knee issue that held him out two games before playing again on Sunday, where he went 1-for-2 with a strikeout. A problem significant to force him from the game, occurring with the same body part that sidelined him last week is of concern, so stay tuned for an update on his situation. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
