EDGE Analysis

Sabathia missed the ALDS with shoulder soreness, but will be available out of the bullpen against the Astros in the ALCS.

Sabathia won't be available out of the bullpen Saturday or Sunday in order to rest, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sabathia was expected to make one more relief appearance this weekend, but the Yankees will instead provide him a little extra rest and have him throw a simulated game Tuesday or Wednesday. The veteran southpaw has dealt with chronic knee issues throughout the season, so it's no surprise to see the team being cautious heading into the playoffs. Sabathia has made one appearance out of the bullpen so far and according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, manager Aaron Boone said he's "probably" on the ALDS roster.

Sabathia will pitch in relief next week to prepare for a bullpen role in the postseason, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

We knew Sabathia's start Wednesday was his last at Yankee Stadium; as it turns out, it was the last of his (likely) Hall of Fame career. He will pitch out of the bullpen once against Tampa Bay next week and once against the Rangers next weekend. Sabathia finishes with a 4.99 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 106.1 innings as a starter this season.
