Masahiro Tanaka's rough season hit another low point on Saturday as the Yankees' right-hander was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, the team announced. "I don't think it will be too long".
The Yankees recalled right-hander Giovanny Gallegos to replace him.
A day earlier, the playoff-contending Yankees put starter CC Sabathia on the DL because of inflammation in his right knee.

"We decided he needs a break", Girardi said. In his most recent start, Tanaka had allowed a leadoff home run to Jose Bautista and then a walk to Josh Donaldson, giving him a career-high five walks and prompting Girardi to remove him from the game. Rather, Tanaka was feeling more worn out.
Tanaka has struggled this season, going 8-10 with a 4.92 ERA and 141 strikeouts in 23 starts. Tanaka threw 88 pitches in the brief outing. Tanaka won't throw at all over the next five days and will miss a couple starts while he rests his exhausted pitching arm, putting him in line to return sometime when the Yankees face the Tigers between August 22 and August 24.
