Sox to miss injured Sabathia on Friday


Sox to miss injured Sabathia on Friday

C.C. Sabathia has faced the White Sox 31 times in his career, holding Chicago hitters to a .703 OPS with a 3.63 ERA. He was scheduled to make start No. 32 against the Sox on Friday, but won't get that chance as the Yankees placed him on a 15-day disabled list with a strained groin.

The White Sox were scheduled to face Freddy Garcia, but the right-hander appeared in Wednesday's Yankees-Indians game as a reliever. After Wednesday's game -- a 5-4 Yankees win -- the team revealed right-hander Adam Warren will make his major-league debut on Friday.

Warren, 24, has spent the last two seasons with Triple-A ScrantonWilkes-Barre, compiling a 3.70 ERA with 80 walks, 170 strikeouts and 22 home runs allowed. He was a fourth-round pick of the Yankees in the 2009 MLB Draft out of UNC.

What's Freddy up to?

Garcia entered Wednesday with a 6.91 ERA in 28 23 innings this season covering four starts and nine relief appearances. The 35-year-old Garcia re-emerged as a dependable starter with the Sox in 2010, making 28 starts with a 4.64 ERA after missing most of the previous three seasons.

Garcia left for New York in 2011 and compiled a 3.58 ERA in 25 starts despite less-than-stellar stuff. But he's crashed hard in 2012 and hasn't started a game since April 28. In four starts, Garcia allowed 20 runs and 25 hits with five walks, 13 strikeouts and three home runs allowed over 13 23 innings.

The Sox are scheduled to face Ivan Nova on Thursday and Hiroki Kuroda on Saturday. The Yankees have not announced a Sunday starter.
