Tanaka on 10-day DL
The New York Yankees have put right-hander Masahiro Tanaka on the 10-day disabled list because of shoulder inflammation.
The Yankees made the move Saturday before hosting the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox. Righty Giovanny Gallegos was recalled from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Tanaka issued a career-high five walks in four-plus innings at Toronto on Wednesday. After the game, Tanaka told the team he was ailing.
“We decided he needs a break,” Manager Joe Girardi said.
Girardi said there is nothing structurally wrong with Tanaka. Rather, he’ll rest and strengthen his shoulder, and is expected back soon.
