TORONTO (AP) Injured Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka is being sent back to New York because of general soreness in his right arm, a setback in his bid to rejoin the rotation this season.

"There's obviously concern, but I think we play it out this week to see where we're at," manager Joe Girardi said before Friday night's game at Toronto.

The Japanese star is 12-4 with a 2.51 ERA in his first season in the majors. He hasn't pitched since July 8 as he recovers from a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, and the Yankees hope he can return for a playoff push.
