The Yankees have activated LHP CC Sabathia off the disabled list to make Thursday night's start against the Blue Jays, and placed RHP Luis Cessa on the 10-day DL (retroactive to April 18) due to a left oblique strain.
Sabathia had hit the 10-day DL after suffering a right hip strain that forced an early exit in his last start against the Orioles. He was hit hard in that outing as he allowed three homers on 58 pitches before being pulled after the fourth inning.
An MRI revealed no structural damage to Sabathia's hip. The 37-year-old has dealt with injuries in the past, especially with his right knee that he had arthroscopic surgery on in 2016. With bone-on-bone arthritis in that knee, a replacement is likely to happen in the future.
