Manager Aaron Boone says 39-year-old CC left-hander CC Sabathia will not be included on the Division Series roster because of issues with his pitching shoulder. Sabathia, who is retiring after the postseason, made his first regular-season relief appearance last week, had a cortisone shot and did not respond well enough.
