BREAKING: Jose Ramirez Called Up, Whitley has Sprain

UPDATE II: Whitley's MRI revealed a tear and Tommy John surgery is now likely although he will seek a second opinion, probably Dr. James Andrews.

UPDATE: Chase Whitley has been diagnosed with a sprain, not a strain, in his elbow and will be placed on the 15 day DL. For now, no Tommy John surgery so yay! for that. Jose Ramirez has been called up to take his place on the roster but that is presumably just to stopgap until his next start when Chris Capuano is expected to be activated and thrown to the wolves.

Chase Whitley has left the game tonight between the Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees in the second inning with an apparent injury. Whitley did not look especially sharp in the contest causing Joe Girardi and Steve Donahue to come out to the mound and remove the right hander. No word on what the injury is, we didn't see him wince in pain or complain of any problems or injuries so you will have to stay tuned.
