The last few days have not been kind to Luis Cessa. The 25-year-old was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday afternoon only to be recalled on Tuesday when Tommy Kahnle landed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis. After just two innings of work in the Yankees 9-1 loss to the Marlins, he suffered an oblique strain and is headed to the DL as well.
Luis Cessa has an oblique strain and is headed for the DL, Brian Cashman said.
CC Sabathia is expected to return within the next two days which will fill the roster spot vacated by Cessa. Being down a bull pen arm, an additional move will need to be made if Aaron Boone wants to recall (most likely) Jonathan Holder.
After an off day Wednesday, the Blue Jays come to town for a three game set starting Thursday.
