With some late night New York Yankees baseball, wake up this morning to the latest news with the Bomber Buzz.
Grab your cup of Joe (no, not Girardi) and settle in. We’ve got your New York Yankees news for this morning all in one place.
Let’s start with current staff ace CC Sabathia. In the beginning of the season, fans were concerned that an aging Sabathia did not fit into the Yankees rotation.
Well, after a 7-2 start, everyone changed their tune. And now, Sabathia has succumbed to injury, after earning praise from the entire Yankees organization.
The Yankees released further information about Sabathia’s injury and it certainly does not look good.
#Yankees say CC Sabathia has a grade 2 hamstring strain. That's a DL for sure. Rotation spot still TBD.

So, Sabathia is likely headed towards the disabled list. Just as he was putting up elite numbers for this hot Yankees squad. What did we do to deserve this?
The Yankees still haven’t announced who would take his place for his next scheduled start on Sunday, but the chances of Chad Green coming back out to the mound are pretty good.
In preparation for Sabathia’s imminent trip to the DL, the Yankees have already started making roster moves.

When it comes to the MLB Draft, the Yankees decided to stock up big-time…on pitchers.
In the first 22 rounds of the Draft this year, the Yankees selected 16 RHPs and one LHP. I guess it’s safe to say that they have confidence in their offense for several years to come.
To end the Buzz on a great note, let’s look at Rob Refsnyder. During his first at-bat in last night’s game, Ref found himself on third base with a stand-up triple.
Impressive by itself, Ref also got that hit with his friends and family watching him play in the ballpark he grew up near.
What a cool moment for Rob Refsnyder. Hits a triple with family and friends watching in the stands.

I’m not crying. I just have something in my eye. But good for you, Refsnyder, taking advantage of a rare starting opportunity.
