Yanks' Sabathia says he 'flipped out' in Toronto street mess

NEW YORK (AP) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia says he ''flipped out'' and made a ''bad decision'' for getting involved in a shouting match outside a Toronto nightclub over the weekend.

TMZ posted video Monday showing Sabathia hollering in a crowd of people early Saturday. The AL East-leading Yankees had started a series at Toronto several hours earlier.

Sabathia's scheduled start at Yankee Stadium on Monday night was pushed back a day, with Bryan Mitchell pitching in his place. Manager Joe Girardi said the team had already planned to alter their rotation before he became aware of the incident and that it had no effect on the switch.

Police were called to the scene. Sabathia left in a taxi and wasn't detained.

Girardi said he had no comment on whether Sabathia would be disciplined by the team.
