CC: Biceps tendinitis

CC Sabathia told reporters after the game that he was checked out by Dr. Dan Kanell and was told he had biceps tendinitis.

While that is potentially more serious that simple “biceps tightness” as the Yankees reported, Sabathia said it has bothered him before between starts over the years and that he wanted to stay in the game.

CC also said with conviction that he planned to make his next start. No tests are planned. He will get treatment tomorrow in Atlanta.

Meanwhile, the game was played under protest by Joe Girardi. The Marlins, he contends, made an illegal substitution in the eighth inning.

Relief pitcher Leo Nunez was placed in the first slot in the batting order. But Chris Coghlan, who was batting first, ran out to left field and was there for one pitch. That’s when Girardi went out to see the umpires.

The umpires made Florida take Coghlan out of the game. Girardi wanted Nunez taken out of the game.

The protest, in theory, could be upheld and cause the game to be replayed from that point.
