Marc Carig from the Star-Ledger is reporting that the Yankees have acquired Derek Lowe. Looks like he could be the temporary starter in place of Sabathia.

UPDATE, 6:22 p.m.: Lowe will pitch out of the bullpen for the Yankees, which makes David Phelps the almost certain starter on Monday. The Yankees are expected to temporarily call-up Ryota Igarashi to provide a bullpen arm for tomorrow’s game.

UPDATE, 6:25 p.m.: A Yankees source has confirmed that Phelps will start Monday.

UPDATE, 6:40 p.m: Lowe actually had a 3.06 ERA after his start on June 1. At that point he was 7-3 and looking like a valuable part of the Indians rotation. Since June 1, Lowe is 1-7 with an 8.77 ERA, more walks than strikeouts and an opponents’ slash line of .350/.418/.502
