Yankees setup man Rafael Soriano is going to be examined by renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews after having a second MRI on his sore right elbow.

The Yankees would not reveal the results of the exam until he sees Andrews and the club's doctors on Wednesday.

The team said Soriano was given a contrast MRI on Tuesday after the right-hander was shut down a day earlier when he felt soreness in his elbow while throwing on flat ground.

Soriano had an MRI on May 11 and has not pitched since May 13.

The AL saves leader last season for Tampa Bay has struggled with New York after signing a three-year, $35 million deal in the offseason. He is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA.
