For the second time in as many seasons, Jonathan Lucroy is on the move before the trade deadline.
The Rangers shipped the struggling catcher to the Rockies Sunday for a player to be named later.
But Sabathia’s arthritic knee probably has changed that after he left Tuesday’s start, though a midweek scan showed no new damage.
I want to see CC [Friday] before we make the decision, Girardi said of the move to Montgomery. But my inkling is that he came out of the game in a substantial amount of pain. Maybe the medicine is working, but let’s see.
Meantime, the Red Sox altered their rotation so Cy Young favorite Chris Sale will face the Yankees in each of the remaining three series between the teams.

Beyond chasing the Red Sox, the Yankees are being chased by six teams that are within four games of them in the wild-card standings, closer than they are to the AL East-leading Red Sox entering Friday’s games.
I’m not going to lie. Disappointment is a little bit of an understatement, Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel told reporters prior to Tuesday’s game.

The Yankees added Sonny Gray, the Dodgers added Yu Darvish and the Diamondbacks added J.D. Martinez 鈥?all moves that should result in more wins than the team would have had without them.
The Astros added Francisco Liriano, whose ERA is hovering around 6.00. Keuchel’s displeasure is understandable.
We obviously believe in ourselves and believe we’re good enough to win now and get to the World Series, Keuchel said. It’s just good teams can always be great and great teams can always be legendary, so at the end of the year we want to be the only ones left, but it’s just a little disappointing for sure.
