Sabathia into alcohol rehab, no playoffs

NEW YORK (AP) CC Sabathia walked into manager Joe Girardi's office in Baltimore on Sunday and made a stunning admission: He has an alcohol problem.

"The first thing he said is, `I need help,'" Girardi said Monday during a workout at Yankee Stadium for the AL wild-card game. "I was shocked."

Sabathia surprised many in the Yankees organization by revealing his problem. And with the team's help, the burly left-hander is checking into a rehab center and will miss the postseason, a setback to the pitching staff the day before New York meets Houston in the AL wild-card game.
