FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: C.C. SABBATHIA HITTING THE DL EXTENDS LEASH ON LUIS SEVERINO

In a surprising move, the New York Yankees placed SP C.C., Sabbathia on the 15-day disabled list Friday with what the team is calling a groin injury.  We say surprise because Sabbathia was coming off his best start of the season with seven scoreless innings against the Baltimore Orioles to temporarily halt a long losing streak by the Yanks and there was no word of any physical issue afterwards when he met with reporters.  Be that as it may, the rough back nine to Sabbathia's career continues as not only has his stuff betrayed him but his health also.  As a result, Ivan Nova goes into the rotation where he has some AL-only value or some appeal in very deep mixed formats.  Nova outpitched Sabbathia this past spring training but the lefty got the nod for the fifth starter's spot in the rotation.  Also as a result of Sabbathia's injury, the leash likely got longer for Luis Severino who has been horrendous this season in trying to build off a terrific 2015 debut.  While we would not start Severino in any league until he starts to show signs of turning it around, at least he likely will be staying around for awhile longer.  Either way you really want to steer clear of all three of these guys based on their performances this season.
