The latest from around the AL East.

New York placed CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain, the club announced Friday.

An MRI revealed a Grade 1 strain, according to ESPN's Wallace Matthews, and as a result, Manager Joe Girardi is expecting Sabathia to be out for longer.

The injury appeared to occur when in the fourth inning of New York's 7-0 win over the Orioles, Girardi told Matthews.

Ivan Nova is set to replace Sabathia in the rotation, but it will likely remain a blow to the Yankees' pitching staff.

More from around the AL East:

  • Jacoby Ellsbury left Friday's Red Sox-Yankees with what seemed to be a lower body injury.
  • Boston optioned Henry Owens to Triple-A and recalled Sean O'Sullivan. In order to make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox transferred Pablo Sandoval on the 60-day DL.
  • Adam Jones hasn't been the same since suffering from an oblique injury.
  • Tampa Bay has had difficult hitting righties. Is it time to panic?
  • The Red Sox's offense has been productive, but it hasn't had much success against left-handed pitchers.
  • Is it time for Hyun-Soo Kim to receive more playing time?
