New York Sends Two Pitchers To Disabled List

New York Sends Two Pitchers To Disabled List”

The left-handed starter C. C. Sabathia was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Friday because of inflammation in his degenerating right knee, and the right-hander Michael Pineda, who had Tommy John surgery in July, is on the 60-day disabled list.

The Yankees made the move Saturday before hosting the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox.

Having gone just four innings while issuing five free passes in his last start, it's clear that this issue has come up just recently for Tanaka.

The Yankees recalled right-hander Giovanny Gallegos to replace him. "From a strength standpoint he comes out fine", said Girardi before referring to a magnetic resonance imaging test. "So we decided he just needs a break". Rather, Tanaka was feeling more tired. "I'm not looking to be away for a long time".

Tanaka has struggled this season, going 8-10 with a 4.92 ERA and 141 strikeouts in 23 starts. The 28-year-old was scheduled to start Monday night when the New York Mets play at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees starting rotation has suddenly become a MASH unit.

Girardi said Bryan Mitchell and Luis Cessa are candidates to pitch in Tanaka's place.
