Shoulder Newsbeat

CC Sabathia leaves possible last appearance with injury

CC Sabathia was taken out of the game in the eighth inning of ALCS Game 4 after suffering an apparent shoulder injury throwing to George Springer. He relieved struggling setup man Adam Ottavino and recorded two outs before being checked on by the team’s training staff.

If the injury is serious and the Astros, who are up 2-1, win the series, it may be Sabathia’s last pitch in pinstripes. The lefty, who won 251 games over the course of his career and went 134-88 in the Bronx, announced his retirement before the season began.

Astros stars Gerrit Cole and George Springer, who slammed a three-run home run against starter Masahiro Tanaka, came to the top step to applaud alongside the Yankee Stadium faithful, who sent him off with a standing ovation. Jonathan Loaisiga retired the final batter to escape the jam.

Sabathia had experienced shoulder trouble shortly before the season ended, which led to him being left off the ALDS roster. The 39-year-old attempted to stay in the game, throwing a warmup pitch mid-batter to test his shoulder. But it didn’t work, and Sabathia walked off the field for likely the final time.

A crying shame, if this is indeed the end.

LEADING OFF: Scherzer returns, Red Sox protest, Gallo out

A look at what’s happening around the majors Thursday:

BACK TO MAX

Nationals ace Max Scherzer is set to start against Colorado after recovering from inflammation under his right shoulder. The 34-year-old right-hander threw a bullpen Monday and felt ready to go.

An All-Star for the seventh straight season, Scherzer is 9-5 with a 2.30 ERA but has not pitched since July 6. He was 7-0 with a 0.87 ERA in his last seven starts.

I don’t know- if he threw the entire bullpen, that’s got to either do damage to his arm, or demonstrate that it is so strong he doesn’t need the time off….
