The New York Yankees have placed pitcher Masahiro Tanaka on the 10-day disabled list with hamstring strains in both legs.

Tanaka suffered the injury while scoring on a sacrifice fly in Friday's victory over the New York Mets.

This is the second time in four years that Tanaka was hurt while running the bases. He suffered a similar strain in 2015 while attempting to beat out a ground ball at Citi Field.

When asked about the injury, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said it could be "weeks" before Tanaka returns.

The Japanese right-hander has struggled to start the season, positing a 4.58 ERA in 13 starts. However, Tanaka is 7-2 on the season.

The move allowed the Yankees to recall infielder Ronald Torreyes from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
