Yankees place Masahiro Tanaka on disabled list

12 Août 2017

A day after CC Sabathia was placed on the 10-day disabled list with discomfort in the right knee, Masahiro Tanaka is joining him with right shoulder inflammation, the Yankees announced early Saturday afternoon.

Manager Joe Girardi said Tanaka has no structural damage to his shoulder and was simply placed on the DL as a result of fatigue, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

"We decided he needs a break", Girardi said. "From a strength standpoint he comes out fine", said Girardi before referring to a magnetic resonance imaging test.

"You can MRI every pitcher and you're gonna find some inflammation somewhere", Girardi added.

With depth NT Kyle Peko still recovering from a broken foot, the interior of the line was already a man short. He played 57.93 percent of all defensive snaps last season, a number that was expected to go up in 2017.

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. "I've had a tough time getting the soreness out of the area".

Tanaka's E.R.A. this season is the highest of his career by more than a run.

But Tanaka was having his best month in August, having allowed just three earned runs in 10 innings. Tanaka walked a career-high five batters in just four-plus innings on Wednesday night, an 11-5 Yankees win over the Blue Jays in Toronto. Brian Mitchell and Luis Cessa are options to temporarily replace him in the rotation.
