Game 80: Sunday Night Rubber Match

Michael Pineda officially began his rehab program yesterday, and it sounds like it went as well as could be expected. And CC Sabathia made his first rehab start yesterday, and he "couldn't be happier with the way [he] felt physically." His fastball was in the 87 to 89 MPH range, which is ... to be expected, I suppose. Both are, for the time being, on-track to return in time for the postseason. In the meantime, the Yankees look to take advantage of the Orioles and Blue Jays losing this afternoon, as old friend John Lackey toes the rubber for the Red Sox.
