CC Sabathia will not pitch again for the New York Yankees this season because of a strained left hamstring.

The Yankees said Monday that Sabathia was hurt Friday in his last start, when they beat the San Francisco Giants. They said the left-hander has a Grade 2 strain and would need approximately eight weeks to recover.

The Yankees are four games out of a wild-card spot entering the final week of the season.

Sabathia will finish with a 14-13 record and 4.78 ERA in 32 starts.
