The Yankees starting rotation has suddenly become a MASH unit. Jordan Montgomery was recalled Friday to take Sabathia's turn in the rotation Sunday.

Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka, coming off a rocky start in his last outing, has been placed on the 10-day DL with shoulder inflammation, the team announced Saturday. Tanaka reportedly told the team that his arm simply feels exhausted and there is no structural damage the team is concerned about. Right-hander Giovanny Gallegos was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill Tanaka's spot on the roster.

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.

Sabathia is 9-5 with a 4.05 ERA and 80 strikeouts in 19 starts this season.
