Yankees place Masahiro Tanaka on disabled list

Righty Giovanny Gallegos was recalled from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre as the corresponding move.

A day earlier, the playoff-contending Yankees put starter CC Sabathia on the DL because of inflammation in his right knee. "So we decided he just needs a break". 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.

Girardi said there is nothing structurally wrong with Tanaka. "I'm not looking to be away for a long time".

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.

With an 8-10 record and 4.92 ERA on the year, our models project the 28-year-old for a 4-2 record and 4.13 ERA in 56-plus innings the rest of the way this season.

Girardi said that Bryan Mitchell and Luis Cessa are the likely candidates to take Tanaka's next turn Monday against the Mets. Jordan Montgomery, who is 7-6 with a 4.05 ERA in 21 starts for the Yankees this year, was recently recalled from Triple-A and set to pitch Sunday night against Red Sox ace Chris Sale.
