Yankees' CC Sabathia placed on IL with knee inflammation

Yankees' CC Sabathia placed on IL with knee inflammation BALTIMORE — CC Sabathia's ailing right knee landed him on the 10-day injured list Thursday, although the New York Yankees don't expect the star lefty to be sidelined for long. Sabathia has right knee inflammation, a problem he's been dealing with for a long time. "This is something we know we're going to face at different times throughout the year with CC," manager Aaron Boone said, "so hopefully it's just something that we can knock out quickly and hopefully just miss a turn." Sabathia pitched five innings against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night and complained about knee soreness after allowing five runs and six hits. "It's just hard to land," he said.

NEW YORK — The Yankees have acquired veteran slugger Kendrys Morales from the Oakland Athletics.

New York is also getting $8,491,452 from Oakland to cover most of the $8,903,226 remaining in Morales' $12 million salary. That leaves the Yankees to pay $411,774, a prorated share of the $555,000 minimum.

As part of the deal announced Tuesday night, the Yankees will send Oakland a player to be named or cash.

Oakland acquired Morales from Toronto on March 27, and the Blue Jays agreed to send the A's $11,445,000 as part of that swap. The 13-year major league veteran appeared in 34 games. A switch-hitter, he batted .204 with one homer and seven RBIs before being designated for assignment Monday.

Yankees acquire Morales from A ' s . The Canadian Press. The A ' s acquired Morales from Toronto on March 27, and the 13-year major league veteran appeared in 34 games. The switch-hitter batted .204 with one homer and seven RBIs before being designated for assignment Monday.

Kendrys Morales , who was designated for assignment by the Oakland Athletics on Monday, didn't have to wait long to find a new team, as the A ' s traded him to the New York Yankees on Tuesday. The Yankees announced that they picked up the first baseman/designated hitter and cash considerations.

The Yankees added Morales a day after putting Miguel Andújar back on the injured list with a small labrum tear in his right shoulder. New York has 13 players on the IL, and Andújar had been the Yankees' best remaining fit at designated hitter.

Morales is in the final year of a $33 million, three-year contract.

Zero-emission transport trucks set to hit Alberta roads.
A new type of heavy transport truck will soon be on the road in Alberta and its drivers won't be fuelling up at gas stations. The truck will run on electricity powered by hydrogen — and produce zero emissions. Transport trucks are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, which are scientifically linked to contributing to climate change. So researchers and industry want to know if electric power can move the heavy vehicles — and how much. So they're running a pilot project, led by the Alberta Motor Transport Association, to see if the power from hydrogen fuel will be enough. It will be a first for Canada.
