Sabathia off disabled list ... Trout to miss All-Star ... Miguel Montero heads to the Blue Jays
UNDATED (AP) — CC Sabathia (7-2, 3.46 ERA) comes off the disabled list for the banged-up Yankees to start against J.A. Happ (2-5, 3.71) and the Blue Jays.

Warren has been out since June 16 because of right shoulder inflammation.
