Masahiro Tanaka's up and down season takes another down turn on Saturday
The Yankees starting rotation has suddenly become a MASH unit. Today it looks like they might not have enough. Rather, Tanaka was feeling more tired.
NY does have depth in their rotation after adding Sonny Gray and Jamie Garcia at the trade deadline, but had sent Montgomery to the minors in an effort to limit his innings.
But Tanaka was having his best month in August, having allowed just three earned runs in 10 innings.
The Yankees made the move Saturday before hosting the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox. "From a strength standpoint he comes out fine", said Girardi before referring to a magnetic resonance imaging test.
Tanaka is in the fourth year of a seven-year $155 million contract that permits him to "opt-out" after this season.
Broncos sign rookie to replace IR-bound Winn
He was released by the Steelers last week when the team signed cornerback JaCorey Shepherd to bolster its secondary. Winn, a sixth-year pro from Boise State, played in all 16 games last season in his first year in Denver.
Tanaka is the second Yankees pitcher to go on the disabled list this week, after CC Sabathia was placed on Friday.
Tanaka has struggled this season, going 8-10 with a 4.92 ERA and 141 strikeouts in 23 starts.
Tanaka's latest injury is not believed to be related to the partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow that he sustained in July 2014. Bryan Mitchell and Luis Cessa are options to slot in for Tanaka's rotation spot. That does not count the final two weeks of last season when he was shut down because of a strained right forearm.
Tanaka won't throw for five days and said he then plans to resume his throwing program.
"It's obviously frustrating to miss time, especially this time and where we're at making the playoff push", Tanaka said.
