NEW YORK — Yankees ace CC Sabathia is heading to the disabled list with a strained muscle in his left leg. The left-hander will be out until after the All-Star break, but manager Joe Girardi said that if all goes right, Sabathia will only miss two turns in the rotation.
Sabathia did not want to go on the DL, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told him during a Wednesday morning meeting that the club would not take any chances with his health.
“Better safe than sorry,” Cashman said.
