Tanaka is the second Yankees pitcher to go on the disabled list this week, after CC Sabathia was placed on Friday.

Tanaka came out of last Wednesday's start in Toronto after four innings where he allowed three runs and issued a career-high five walks. 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. "So we decided he just needs a break". Rather, Tanaka was feeling more worn out.

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. There has been no talk that Tanaka's shoulder was bothering him. Montgomery will pitch Sunday's series finale with the Red Sox in Sabathia's stead.

The former Japanese ace is 8-10 with a career-high 4.92 ERA in 23 starts during an up-and-down season.

Tanaka's latest injury is not believed to be related to the partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow that he sustained in July 2014. That does not count the final two weeks of last season when he was shut down because of a strained right forearm.

Tanaka won't throw for five days while doing strengthening exercises.

Girardi said Bryan Mitchell and Luis Cessa are candidates to pitch in Tanaka's place.

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