CC Sabathia will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with stiffness in his left elbow, Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters after Saturday's victory in Toronto. However, Girardi said the team's concern was "pretty low" for his long-term status, tweets Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger.

Earlier Saturday, the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand reported Sabathia was dealing with soreness in his elbow following Wednesday's start in Detroit and that the team was considering pushing back his next start, Monday against the Rangers. After the game, it was revealed that Sabathia first experienced the discomfort in his elbow following his previous start, Aug. 3 against the Mariners.

"Right now, it's a low-level concern," a source told Feinsand. "Long-term, it's not a big concern."

Sabathia is 12-3 with a 3.56 ERA in 20 starts and 141 2/3 innings. This is his second stint on the disabled list this season, the first for a groin injury that kept him out three weeks.

The team expects Sabathia to start the first day he is eligible to return from the disabled list, Aug. 24 in Cleveland.
