The Yankees will turn to CC Sabathia after a tough loss due to a depleted bullpen. To address the tired bullpen, David Phelps was activated. Phelps has not pitched in a major league game since July 4 in Minnesota. The Boston Red Sox will send Jon Lester to the mound. J.R. Murphy is getting his first start behind the plate to catch Sabathia.
