The veteran righty lasted three innings on Tuesday night before exiting with right shoulder tightness.

New York Yankees pitcher Corey Kluber will miss two months with a shoulder strain, manager Aaron Boone said during his Wednesday press conference.

James Wagner of The New York Times reported Kluber strained the subscapularis muscle and would not throw for four weeks.

Boone also added that given the timeline, Kluber would need another four weeks to get back into game shape. This would put his return in mid-July.

Meanwhile, Bryan Hoch of reported a corresponding move that most Yankees fans should like.
