The most alarming news has to be Sabathia, who appears to be having some trouble with his surgically repaired right knee again. We don’t yet know the severity, but CC has had flare-ups in the past which required rest and DL-stints, so hopefully he’ll need just the 10 days before he’s eligible to be reinstated on Aug. 24 in Baltimore.
Torreyes has raked in Scranton this season, hitting .323 in 24 games. With Giancarlo Stanton nursing a hamstring injury and playing primarily as a DH going forward, the Yankees are opting to go with Neil Walker in RF. Torreyes provides versatility, and can bounce around the diamond unlike Voit who was basically anchored at first base.
Kontos, 33, who actually made his MLB debut with the Yankees back in 2011, will likely just be a placeholder as depth in the bullpen.
