Sergio Mitre woke up with some stiffness in his left side on Sunday. He told the Yankees about it, and they decided to shut him down for a few days. He’s hoping to throw again later this week.
The problem is in a similar but not identical spot as the oblique injury that put him in the disabled list last year. This is on his back, last year’s injury was closer to his stomach.
Mitre said he does not believe this will
impact his chances of making the rotation. He said the Yankees have seen him and know what he can do.
