Chad Jennings of LoHud says Rumbelow was placed on the 15-day disabled list and that it was caused from warming up before the start of the fifth innings last night.
The 24-year-old pitched in 17 games to a 4.02 earned run average in his first season in the Bronx. He was battling for one of the bullpen spots out of spring training but lost out late in camp. It is a tough blow to the Yankees bullpen depth and to Rumbelow, who is a promising young pitcher with a big arm.
