It’s the final off-day of the Yankees regular season (and possibly for 2013), so let’s go over some quick notes that happened today.
— CC Sabathia‘s dismal 2013 season has come to an end due to–can you guess–an injury. He has a Grade 2 left hamstring strain, which he obtained during his last start. The recovery time will be about eight weeks, so it’s time for Sabathia to set his sights on how to become an ace for the 2014 season. Honestly, the way this team is…I wouldn’t be surprised if everyone was injured the last game of the season.
— Brian Cashman will not try to contact Andy Pettitte this offseason to see if he wants to return for the 2014 season. He believes that Pettitte has made up his mind, and there would be no convincing him to return like in the past.
— The Yankees are technically alive in the Wild Card race, however their run to the postseason seems unlikely with every step they take. The Yankees are four back in the Wild Card race with six games remaining and three teams ahead of them.
