Analysis: Manager Joe Girardi said Thursday that an MRI test on Cervelli revealed a stress reaction in his right elbow. He has been shut down from activity for two weeks. Girardi said the injury arose in the last few days and acknowledged the 27-year-old probably won't return to the Yankees until August. A stress reaction is the precursor to a stress fracture.
