NEW YORK — The New York Yankees placed left-hander CC Sabathia and third baseman Brandon Drury on the 10-day disabled list.
The moves Saturday came a day after New York lost to Baltimore 7-3, with Pedro Alvarez hitting a grand slam in the 14th-inning in a game lasting 5 hours, 20 minutes.
Sabathia left Friday’s game with a sore right hip after throwing just 58 pitches over four innings. The move to the disabled list for the 37-year-old pitcher came despite a clean MRI.
Drury has been dealing with severe migraines for some time. He already has seen a doctor and is set for more tests Monday.
Jonathan Holder, who served up Alvarez’s slam, was optioned to Triple-A.
To fill the vacancies, the Yankees recalled right-handers Luis Cessa and Domingo German from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and signed utility man Jace Peterson to a major league contract.
Sabathia, a six-time All-Star, threw just 58 pitches.
The health issues do not end there. Infielder Tyler Wade was pulled from Friday’s game with flu-like symptoms. He had fever, shakes and dry heaving. He was administered IV treatment and was feeling ill before Saturday’s game.
Catcher Gary Sanchez was in better shape after limping off the field with leg cramps late in the game.
