Sabathia (knee) has been confirmed as Saturday's starter against the Red Sox.
He will come off the DL, but the expectation is that his knee pain could linger for the foreseeable future, so it's possible there could be skipped starts or even another DL stint in his immediate future. Sabathia had given up 12 runs in 13.1 innings over his last three starts before landing on the DL, so he is a pretty risky fantasy option against Boston.
Gomes is out of Saturday's lineup against the Royals, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports.
He just barely plays enough to be considered the starting catcher, but it's essentially a pretty even time share. Gomes has six RBI and four hits in his last two games (eight at-bats). Roberto Perez will start behind the dish and hit ninth.
Darvish was placed on the 10-day disabled list with back tightness, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Darvish's back tightened up during his last start -- which could help explain his career-worst two strikeouts -- and the 32-year-old will require a brief stint on the DL to get over the issue. The good news is manager Dave Roberts said the issue isn't a serious one, and the team expects him to miss just one start while on the shelf, according to Alanna Rizzo of SportsNet LA. This lines him up to return to action against the Brewers on Aug. 27. In the meantime, Edward Paredes was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take his place on the roster, while Brock Stewart is expected to fill in for Darvish in the rotation while he's sidelined.
Zimmer is out of Saturday's lineup against the Royals, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports.
He snapped out of his horrific slump, going 3-for-10 with three strikeouts in his last two games, but the Indians will opt for more of a righty-heavy lineup against lefty Jason Vargas. Brandon Guyer starts in left field while Austin Jackson slides over to patrol center.
Moreland is out of Saturday's lineup against the Yankees, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.
With lefty CC Sabathia on the hill or the Yankees, Moreland will take his customary place on the bench as the Red Sox opt for more of a righty-heavy lineup. Hanley Ramirez will start at first base while Chris Young gets the start as the DH.
