C.C. Sabathia is being shut down for the remainder of the 2013 season – which included just six more regular season games – because of a Grade 2 hamstring strain, the Yankees announced Monday.

Barring a miracle that ends with the pinstripes in the postseason, it means C.C. will miss just one start in what is likely the final week of the season for the entire team.

The Yanks are four games back in the race for the second Wild Card spot with just six to play, and two teams in front of them.

Sabathia pitched seven innings of one run ball on Friday night in the Yankees’ 5-1 win when, it would seem, the strain occurred.

But, as noted in this story at, C.C. never mentioned the strain or any soreness after the game:

After the start, Sabathia gave no hints that he was injured, saying that his outing had been important to keep the Yankees alive in their chase of a playoff spot and that he intended to take the ball for his next turn.

“It means a lot, but I’ve got a start in five days and I’ll be ready for that one,” Sabathia said that night.

Sabathia ends the season with a 14-13 record and a 4.78 ERA, the highest of his 13-year career.
