The New York Yankees, leading the American League East, will have to hold on to its advantage – for a little while, at least – without its ace, C.C. Sabathia.The left-handed pitcher was placed on the disabled list with stiffness in his pitching elbow. Not good.Sabathia was spotted icing his elbow in the trainer’s room before Saturday’s night against the Seattle Mariners. He first detected pain after pitching a complete game on August 3 at Yankee Stadium, manager Joe Giradi said.He had an MRI that came back clean, so Sabathia made his next start five days later in Detroit, but left after 6 1/3 innings and just 94 pitches.Girardi said the stiffness resurfaced after that start, but the decision to put Sabathia on the DL was not made until about 4 p.m. Saturday.“As far as our concern, it’s pretty low,” Girardi said. “It’s not like it got any worse. He wants to pitch on Monday, which I’m not surprised, because he said he’s dealt with it before. We just decided, let’s try to get it cleaned up now.”Girardi said Sabathia would see a doctor on Monday after the Yankees return to New York, but no further tests were scheduled.“It’s a tough decision,” Girardi said. “Do you let him pitch and try to fight through it, or is it enough of a concern that we have him maybe miss just two starts and we’ll get him back?”Sabathia missed three starts between June 28 and July 16 while sidelined with a left groin strain. After his return, Sabathia made five starts and won three; his record is 12-3 with a 3.56 ERA.“We’re going to deal with it; that’s the bottom line,” Girardi said. “We don’t want to, but we need to have him healthy. If we’re going to continue to move on, we’re going to need to have him healthy.”Girardi said no decision has been made on who will take Sabathia’s place in the rotation.

A San Diego Police officer responded to the call and as the officer was getting out of his patrol car, Denham ran up to the car and swung a four-foot long metal chain, striking the car.A release from the office detailed the incident “The officer got out of the car and ordered Denham to drop the chain. Denham refused and began walking towards the officer while aggressively swinging the chain. The officer deployed his Taser, which was ineffective. The officer continued to retreat from Denham for a block and a half to avoid being struck by the chain. For more than one minute, the officer continued to give commands to drop the weapon, get on the ground and warned he would be forced to shoot. As Denham ignored the officer’s commands and continued to close the distance between the two men, the officer fired two rounds, striking Denham. Denham was transported to the hospital where he later died.”Toxicology results showed Phencyclidine (PCP), Cannabinoids, and Methamphetamine in Denham’s system.

Daily dose of probiotics – live bacteria and yeasts – well known to be good for the digestive system, may however, be less effective when taken alongside a balanced diet and may impair certain aspects of memory, suggests a research.”If you’re eating poorly, then probiotics might be helpful. But if you’re already eating healthy, they may not be that beneficial,” said Margaret Morris, Professor at University of New South Wales in Australia.For the study, published in the journal ‘Molecular Psychiatry’, the team examined the impact of a commonly used probiotics on the gut health and cognitive function of rats, which were fed either a healthy diet or a “cafeteria diet” high in saturated fat and sugar.

Probiotics may offer a great opportunity to improve health so long as they are replacing the correct bacteria – the challenge is accurately determining which beneficial microbes are absent,” Morris added.
