New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia announced Monday that he plans to check into an alcohol rehabilitation center and will miss the postseason. “I love baseball and I love my teammates like brothers, and I am also fully aware that I am leaving at a time when we should all be coming together for one last push toward the World Series,” he wrote in a statement. “It hurts me deeply to do this now, but I owe it to myself and to my family to get myself right. I want to take control of my disease, and I want to be a better man, father and player.” The Yankees are set to play the Houston Astros in Tuesday night’s wild-card game.
