CC Sabathia was placed on the 10-day DL due to right hip discomfort. It doesn’t look like the injury is too serious, but better safe that sorry. Also, they need the roster spot. As for Brandon Drury, well, um, he’s out indefinitely. Apparently Drury has been dealing with migraines for years now. These migraines have been impairing his vision. While Drury has been trying to get through it, he will undergo tests tomorrow to figure out what’s wrong. Here’s hoping they get to the root of the problem.

Newsday | Brian Heyman: As the saying goes, with injury comes opportunity. I’m not 100% if that’s the saying, but close enough. With Drury out for a while, Miguel Andujar will get a chance to show what he can do. As you well know, Andujar is one of the Yankees’ top prospects. He has had a bit of a slow start to the season, but we’re also only nine games into it.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: Tyler Austin is going to attempt and make the most of his opportunity with Greg Bird recovering. One thing he wants to do is tell his story of how he overcame testicular cancer at a young age. April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month and Austin wants to make sure that he gets the word out to get it checked before it spreads. It is absolutely something not to mess around with.

Cut4 | Jessica Kleinschmidt: Well all know that it was a long, long, LONG night for the Yankees on Friday. It was probably even longer for Aaron Boone, considering the loss, the injuries, and the 14 innings. Boone decided to forego the trip home and just sleep at the stadium. Who can blame him really? The question is, where did he sleep? The office? The conference room? In Cashman’s office? More on this story as it develops.
