Yankees' pitcher CC Sabathia won't be playing for the Yankees during the postseason playoffs after announcing that he is checking into rehab.

ESPN quoted a statement released by Sabathia, saying

Today I am checking myself into an alcohol rehabilitation center to receive the professional care and assistance needed to treat my disease... I love baseball and I love my teammates like brothers, and I am also fully aware that I am leaving at a time when we should all be coming together for one last push toward the World Series... It hurts me deeply to do this now, but I owe it to myself and to my family to get myself right. I want to take control of my disease, and I want to be a better man, father and player.

The Yankees are set to host the Astros on Tuesday for the AL wild-card game. Although he has been pitching better more recently, Sabathia has had the worst record of his 14-year career, pitching 6-10 in 29 starts. He has also given up 28 home runs this season, tying his own career worst record.

How do you think this affects the Yankees' chances in the postseason?
