So that explains the former Cy Young winner’s suspect pitching this season? New York Yankees hurler CC Sabathia announced today (Oct. 5) that he will be checking into an alcohol rehab facility and will miss the playoffs.
“Today I am checking myself into an alcohol rehabilitation center to receive the professional care and assistance needed to treat my disease,” said Sabathia via a statement released through the Bronx Bombers. “I love baseball and I love my teammates like brothers, and I am also fully aware that I am leaving at a time when we should all be coming together for one last push toward the World Series.”
This season, Sabathia was hospitalized for dehydration after a loss in July and got into an argument outside of a Toronto bar in August.
Sabathia, who is represented by Roc Nation, finished the season 6-10 with a 4.73 ERA.
