This also probably ends any notion of the Yankees pushing Luis Severino back a day to get him to face the Sox next weekend in Boston.

Girardi said that no tests had been performed on Tanaka's shoulder, but that team doctors had determined there was no structural damage. Righty Giovanny Gallegos was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Having gone just four innings while issuing five free passes in his last start, it's clear that this issue has come up just recently for Tanaka.

Girardi said there is nothing structurally wrong with Tanaka. "So we decided he just needs a break".

Tanaka's E.R.A. this season is the highest of his career by more than a run. Tanaka threw 88 pitches in the brief outing.


"I think our plan right now is to rest it for a little bit", Tanaka said through a translator.

The former Japanese ace is 8-10 with a career-high 4.92 ERA in 23 starts during an up-and-down season. "I've had a tough time getting the soreness out of the area".

Tanaka, struggling through an uneven season with a 4.92 ERA, was scheduled to open the Subway Series against the Mets on Monday.

After the Yankees made trades for Sonny Gray and Jaime Garcia before the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline, the starting rotation was so crowded that Jordan Montgomery was sent to the minors on July 6.

Tanaka, who has battled elbow injuries over the past two years, is dealing with inflammation in his pitching shoulder, the Yankees said.
