Earlier it was discovered that Yankees pitcher, Cesar Cabral, suffered a "significant" elbow injury. Mark Feinsand is now reporting via Twitter that Cabral's injury is a stress fracture at the tip of his elbow.

Feinsand went on to tweet that Cabral has been put in a splint, without a timetable or treatment plan in place. Because of Cabral's injury, it's likely that Clay Rapada will make the big league club.
Cabral was acquired from the Red Sox via the Rule 5 draft. The 23 year old had some really good years in the Red Sox system, sustaining K rates near 10/9. He pitched 38.1 innings in double A last season, saving one game and winning two, with a K/9 of 10.80.
