CC Sabathia’s postseason availability suddenly in jeopardy

NEW YORK – CC Sabathia hopes the final pitch he threw in the third inning of Friday’s 8-2 loss to Oakland won’t be his last in pinstripes.

Once again, Sabathia’s balky right knee flared up to the point that he could not continue after just three frames, leaving Sabathia, who is set to retire after the Yankees’ season ends, is in a race against the clock.

The plan is to have Sabathia’s knee drained and receive a cortisone shot on Saturday, and then the 39-year-old will have roughly a month to be ready for the postseason.

The Yankees will surely try to give Sabathia every chance to prove he’s healthy, but if that knee isn’t right, and with diminished stuff, it could be a tall task.

Not the way one wants a career to end- but, quite often, the way it does….

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to undergo MRI after leaving game vs. Mariners

Toronto Blue Jays rookie sensation Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will undergo an MRI after leaving Saturday’s game against the Seattle Mariners, manager Charlie Montoyo revealed to reporters post-game.

“He felt a little tweak in his knee so we took him out just in case. So he’s going to get an MRI to make sure he’s fine. I’ll know more about it tomorrow,” Montoyo said.

Montoyo added that he would pull anyone that complains about an injury as a precautionary measure, especially considering where the team is at this juncture of the season.

I have to wonder- is it his build that seems to be making him susceptible to injury, or something else?

Braves lose standout rookie to knee injury after weight room mishap

The Atlanta Braves have been holding strong atop the National League East despite injuries to key hitters Nick Markakis and Dansby Swanson.

Now their injured list is adding a standout rookie after slugging outfielder Austin Riley suffered a right knee injury Tuesday as the result of a weight room mishap.

...

According to Braves manager Brian Snitker, Riley was warming up in the visitor’s weight room at Target Field before Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Twins when he felt something unusual in his knee.

Riley did not appear in Tuesday’s 12-7 win against Minnesota, but was considered available because there seemed to be no lingering effects. That changed Wednesday when the knee stiffened up overnight.

You know, there might be a good reason why, traditionally, players were reluctant to lift weights….

Dustin Pedroia undergoes a “knee joint preservation” procedure

The Boston Red Sox announced this afternoon that Dustin Pedroia underwent a “left knee joint preservation surgery.”  Bill Koch of the Providence Journal tweeted out an article about that procedure from the Cleveland Clinic that said the surgery is an alternative to knee replacement. Pedroia is going to attempt to rehab the knee after recovering from surgery, so it made sense that he’d choose the less-invasive procedure, but the fact that that is the choice he’s facing suggests his knee is in super bad shape.
