CC Sabathia left today's game in the second inning with what was originally called "biceps tightness." Later we learned via PeteAbe that CC actually has "biceps tendinitis," however CC plans to make his next start (Friday against the Mets). Apparently this has bothered CC between starts for years and he asked to remain in the game. PeteAbe says CC will recieve treatment in Atlanta on Monday, throw a bullpen session on Wednesday, and start Friday. Hopefully CC will be fine and ready for Friday, otherwise the Yanks may have a big hole to fill, a hole which I don't see Phil Hughes filling on his own. If CC's out for an extended period of time I think a call to Ben Sheets would be in order.
