Yankees veteran Corey Kluber left Tuesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays after three innings with right shoulder tightness.

Manager Aaron Boone spoke to reporters on Wednesday, and gave an update on Kluber's MRI.

"Yeah we did, he's got a subscap strain," Boone said. "Within that diagnosis, it's four weeks of no throw. But he is going back to get another MRI with the arthrogram, the dye in there, just to rule anything else out. So as of now that's the diagnosis."

Boone went on to say the team will have to step up with Kulber's absence for the next month or so.

"We'll kind of, next man up," Boone said. "Obviously those are valuable innings we gotta make up for in the short-term at least, and we'll find a way to do that."

Kluber is 4-3 on the season over 10 starts with a 3.04 ERA and 55 strikeouts in 53.1 IP. He and the entire Yankees starting rotation has been strong as of late, going 37.1 consecutive innings without allowing a run. That streak ended on Tuesday night as Kluber let up a two-run homer in the top of the third inning.
