New York Yankees right-hander Nathan Eovaldi likely is out through the end of the regular season.

General Manager Brian Cashman said that elbow inflammation will keep Eovaldi from throwing for two weeks, then the right-hander will need a two-week throwing program.

Eovaldi is 14-3 with a 4.20 earned-run average. Manager Joe Girardi said Adam Warren and Bryan Mitchell are candidates to start down the stretch in place of Eovaldi.

Girardi also said that first baseman Mark Teixeira isn't recovering quickly from a bone bruise in his right shin and there's no telling when he will play again.

Teixeira, who has a team-leading 31 home runs, has been on the disabled list since Aug. 27.

Marcus Stroman to start for Blue Jays on Saturday

Right-hander Marcus Stroman will make his first start this season when the Toronto Blue Jays face the Yankees on Saturday in New York.

Stroman, 24, had surgery in March for a torn knee ligament. He had been expected to sit out the season.

Stroman was 11-6 with a 3.65 ERA in 26 appearances, including 20 starts, as a rookie in 2014.
