New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation and pain in his elbow.
Manager Joe Girardi announced the decision after New York beat the Blue Jays Saturday for their fourth consecutive win. Neither a corresponding roster move, nor a starter for Monday's game against Texas, has been announced.
Sabathia, 12-3 with a 3.56 ERA, missed 18 games earlier this season with a strained left groin.
Girardi said Sabathia, the 2007 AL Cy Young Award winner, felt stiff after his Aug. 3 start against Seattle but an MRI showed nothing. Sabathia felt stiff again after pitching at Detroit on Aug. 8. He threw on flat ground Friday rather than throwing his regular bullpen session.
