NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees have put pitcher CC
Sabathia on the 10-day disabled list because of right knee inflammation.The
Yankees made a series of roster moves before hosting the New York Mets on Monday
night. Reliever George Kontos was promoted from Triple-A ,
infielder Ronald Torreyes rejoined the Yankees and first baseman Luke Voit was
sent to the minors.Sabathia was put on the DL a day after pitching six shutout
innings of one-hit ball against Texas. The 38-year-old left-hander is 7-4 with a
3.32 ERA in 22 starts.Sabathia has been bothered by knee trouble for several
seasons. Boosted by a brace, he’s been able to pitch effectively despite the
problem.“We knew it was part of the program that there was going to be times
during the season that he would need a timeout,” Yankees general manager Brian
Cashman said. “So postgame yesterday, he shared with us that he would be best
served by skipping a start ,
so that’s what we’re going to do.”“We knew it was part of managing his knee
throughout this particular year. He’s a pro and he’s made us aware and we
appreciate that, and it gives us a chance to deviate and allow him to
resuscitate and that’s all we’re going to do,” he said.Kontos made his big
league debut with the Yankees in 2011. The 33-year-old righty was a combined 2-3
with one save and a 4.68 ERA for Pittsburgh and Cleveland this season.The
25-year-old Torreyes hit .323 in 24 games for the Yankees before being sent to
Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Voit, acquired from St. Louis in a trade last
month Pedro

, hit .188 with two RBIs in five games for New
York.The Yankees also transferred left-hander Jordan Montgomery (elbow) to the
60-day disabled list. The Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros are the co-betting
favorites to win the 2018 MLB World Series with the postseason field locked in
ahead of the respective wild-card games.According to OddsShark, the Red Sox and
Astros are both +350 (bet $100 to win $350), with the Los Angeles Dodgers right
behind at +450.OddsShark OddsSharkUpdated odds to win the World Series heading

the most in MLB this season. If history is any indicator ,
then Boston will take part in this year's Fall Classic. The Red Sox's other
three 100-win teams all reached the World Series.Boston has the offense to go
all the way. Mookie Betts is the likely American League MVP, and the Sox are
first in weighted on-base average (.340), per FanGraphs.Likewise, the Astros are
essentially the same team that won a World Series title in 2017. One could argue
Houston is even better following the offseason addition of Gerrit Cole and Alex
Bregman's breakout.No team has successfully defended a championship since the
2000 New York Yankees won their third World Series in a row. The Astros have the
pieces to end that streak.Despite winning 12 fewer games in 2018 (92) compared
to a season ago Anthony

, the Dodgers are the logical betting favorite out
of the National League.Much of their struggles can be attributed to injuries,
most notably Clayton Kershaw and Justin Turner.Los Angeles' 5-2 win over the
Colorado Rockies on Monday secured the NL West title, which meant avoiding the
one-game playoff as well. And a National League Division Series with the Atlanta
Braves is arguably preferable to facing off with the Rockies or Chicago Cubs in
the NLDS.
