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
Ahmad Brooks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Brooks is going through the league’s post-concussion protocol this week, which could create more opportunities for Tank Carradine to showcase his skills as an outside pass rusher. The main subs for Brooks on Sunday is rookie Eli Harold, who is ready for the increased workload, however Cory Lemonier and Tank Carradine will be ready to go if needed. Analysis: Dom Murtha
