Brian Cashman informed the media via a teleconference earlier today that catcher Francisco Cervelli had a "stress reaction" to his right elbow and has been shut down for at least two weeks.
Cervelli was placed on the DL after he suffered a broken hand courtesy of a Rajai Davis foul ball on April 26. He had been making good progress and was expected to be one of the first Yankees to return from the DL.
Cashman said the source of the problem was an old stress fracture Cervelli had suffered.
The Yankees continue to get catch a break...literally.
