After a rough outing against the Red Sox Saturday, the Yankees have placed CC Sabathia on the 10-day injury list with knee inflammation.
In a corresponding move, Tyler Wade was recalled from club's Triple-A affiliate.
It marks the second time Sabathia has had to go on the IL with knee inflammation in his surgically repaired knee – the first time occurred in May.
Sabathia, 39, was coming off a performance where he allowed five runs over the span of 4 1/3 innings at Fenway Park. It was his second outing in a row where he was subpar – against the Twins on July 22 he allowed seven runs in four innings.

Out of those 12 runs allowed in his last two starts, 11 were earned. The rough outings have boosted Sabathia's ERA to 4.78.
Despite his shaky last two performances, losing Sabathia is still a tough blow for the Yankees' rotation, which has contributed to their three-game losing streak.
Domingo German will take the mound Sunday to try and stop the Red Sox from sweeping the Yankees in their four-game series, and Chad Green is expected to pitch afterward.
With the trade deadline a couple of days away, New York could start looking at available pitchers if Sabathia's knee doesn't improve quickly.
