Yankees manager Aaron Boone went on WFAN with Mike Francesa, and said LHP Jordan Montgomery has a flexor strain in his elbow. He is expected to be out 6-8 weeks.
The Yankees placed Montgomery, who didn't take the mound after the first inning Tuesday night, on the 10-day DL and recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre. To make room for Hale on the 40-man roster, OF Jacoby Ellsbury was transferred to the 60-day DL.
Montgomery will not be able to throw for two-to-three weeks, manager Aaron Boone said during his appearance.
