Tanaka on 10-day DL

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BASEBALL -

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.
