In his roster announcements for the ALDS with the Red Sox, manager Aaron Boone said LHP CC Sabathia and LHP Stephen Tarpley will be added with Tyler Wade and Kyle Higashioka being replaced.
Sabathia had postseason success last year during the Yankees' improbable run. He owned a 3.72 ERA in two starts against the Indians, and a 0.96 ERA in two ALCS starts against the Astros.
Sabathia could work as the fourth starter if Boone wants to use him in that Game 4 situation if it comes down to it. Overall, his veteran presence on the roster is always good to have.
