BREAKING NEWS: Eiland takes leave of absence

Before tonight's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced that pitching coach Dave Eiland is taking an indefinite leave of absence.  It is unknown why Eiland is taking the absence.  Girardi was really broad and only gave the following information.
“Dave Eiland took a personal leave of absence,” Girardi said. “He’ll be gone as long as he needs. That’s all I’m going to share.”
This could be killer to the Yankee pitching staff who have one of the best in the league.  Bullpen coach Mike Harkey will fill the void that Eiland is creating via his absence.

It is also unknown if Eiland traveled with the team to Canada.

Here's hoping for everything to be okay for Eiland and his family. We hope to see you out there soon Dave!
