TAMPA, Fla. — New York Yankees left-hander Justin Wilson won’t throw for several days and will receive oral anti-inflammatory medication in an effort to alleviate tightness in his pitching shoulder.

Wilson left Monday night’s exhibition against Philadelphia while facing his fourth batter.

New York said Wilson had an MRI Tuesday that was compared to an MRI from a physical as part of the pitcher’s signing last month and “there was nothing actionable from those images.”
