New York Yankees
Masahiro Tanaka, was placed on the fifteen-day disable list. From MLB.com's Bryan Hoch:
Now the Yankees must cross their fingers, hold their breath and try every other trick in the book to rally for good luck. Masahiro Tanaka has been diagnosed with inflammation in his right elbow, sending him to the 15-day disabled list.
... With team physician Christopher Ahmad in Seattle for a conference of the nation's top orthopedic surgeons, the Yankees are taking the unusual step of sending Tanaka across the country for an in-person evaluation. Tanaka could board another flight as soon as Thursday.

From the New York Post's George A. King III:
Their fingers firmly crossed ace pitcher Masahiro Tanaka's right elbow soreness doesn't lead to Tommy John surgery, the Yankees are awaiting the examination of arguably the most important hinge in team history.
Tanaka was sent to New York on Wednesday for an afternoon MRI exam. However, Tanaka will go to Seattle, possibly Thursday, to be examined by team doctor Chris Ahmad, who prefers to examine patients in person as well as look at an MRI. Ahmad is in Seattle for an orthopedics conference. The Yankees are trying to be proactive, and if Tanaka needs to be seen by another expert, most of the world's top orthopedists are in Seattle.
... According to Girardi, Tanaka told the trainers late Tuesday night he was experiencing soreness after absorbing a 5-3 loss to the Indians in which he allowed five earned runs and 10 hits in 6.2 innings.
