Yankees make quartet of roster moves Friday night

The Yankees are in Oakland for the second game of a four-game set Friday night, but will be doing so with a different looking lineup and roster.

The team announced Friday that RHP Adam Warren has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, RHP Giovanny Gallegos was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, catcher Kyle Higashioka and outfielder Mason Williams were recalled from Triple-A and closer Aroldis Chapman has been transferred to Double-A Trenton amid his rehab assignment.

Warren, 29, had experienced soreness in his right trapezius muscle earlier in the week, Joe Girardi explained following Thursday's game. Warren has made 24 appearances for the Yankees this season, going 2-1 with a 2.23 ERA over 32 1/3 innings of work. Over that span he struck out 30 batters and walked 9, while posting a WHIP of 0.804.

Gallegos, 25, finished Thursday's game for the Yankees and surrendered 2 earned runs over 2/3 of an inning, and owns a 7.15 ERA over 9 appearances in relief this season.

In place of Aaron Hicks (Achilles) and Gary Sanchez (abductor muscle), who are day-to-day after suffering injuries Thursday night, the Yankees called up Higashioka and Williams, the latter of whom is batting 9th in the starting lineup Friday.

Higashioka, 27, made 9 appearances earlier in the year and failed to register a hit, though he scored a pair of runs while with the big league club. In Triple-A, Higashioka is slashing .326/.383/.558 with 2 HRs and 11 RBIs over 11 games.

Williams, 25, played 20 games over the last 2 seasons for the Yankees, however injuries have plagued his time in the organization. This season with the Triple-A RailRiders, he's slashing .243/.289/.275 with 22 runs and 18 RBIs over 59 games.

Chapman, 29, will pitch the 1st inning for the Double-A Trenton Thunder Friday night, and has been sidelined since May 13th with left shoulder inflammation. Prior to his placement on the D.L., Chapman converted 7 saves and posted an ERA of 3.55 with 21 strikeouts and 6 walks.

The Yankees look to halt a 3-game losing skid Friday in Oakland, as Luis Severino takes the hill looking to continue his impressive start to the year. First pitch is scheduled for 9:35 pm EST.

Yankees make four roster moves prior to Thursday's game in Oakland

Sabathia sent to DL, 2 pitchers called up as part of shuffle

Ronald Herrera is headed back to Double-A after one outing with the Yankees.(

The New York Yankees made a handful of roster moves prior to Thursday's series opener in Oakland.

Added to the team were right-handers Luis Cessa and Domingo German, who were both recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. To make room on the roster, lefty CC Sabathia was officially placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 14th, with a left hamstring strain, and righty Ronald Herrera was optioned to Double-A Trenton.

Also, the Yankees returned 1st baseman Greg Bird from his injury rehab assignment at Triple-A with a right knee contusion, re-setting his rehab clock.

Cessa has spent most of this season at Triple-A, going 3-6 with a 4.15 ERA in 11 games (10 starts), but he did have 1 stint with the Yankees last month, pitching the final 3 1/3 innings and allowing 2 runs in the team's 7-1 loss to Toronto on May 1st.

Likewise, German has also spent almost the entire season in the Minors, going 3-5 with a 3.34 ERA in 10 games (9 starts) between Scranton and Trenton. He also has 1e day as a Yankee, though, having been called up last Sunday; he made his major-league debut that day, pitching the final 2 2/3 innings in the Yankees' 14-3 win over Baltimore, before being optioned back to Triple-A that night.

Either Cessa or German are expected to start this coming Sunday in place of Sabathia, who left Tuesday's game in Anaheim after pitching 4 innings. The lefty, who is 7-2 with a 3.46 ERA in 13 starts this season, departed after feeling his left hamstring grab on the penultimate pitch of that outing, and an MRI taken Wednesday revealed a Grade 2 strain.

Herrera was called up on Wednesday and made his major-league debut that night, pitching the final 2 innings of the Yankees' 7-5 loss to the Angels. Prior to that he had spent the entire season with Trenton, going 7-0 with a 1.07 ERA in 8 starts for the Thunder.

Bird has been on the disabled list since May 2nd because of a bone bruise in his right ankle. He was sent on a rehab assignment, 1st with Class-A Advanced Tampa, on June 1st, but contacted the team earlier this week to let them know that not only was his knee bothering him after fouling a ball off of it, but also his ankle had once again flared up.

The first baseman was shut down officially with the right knee contusion, and he will see team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad in New York.

"We were caught off guard. He called and said the foot didn't feel right,'' general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday. "We are pulling the plug on his rehab, and he will see Dr. Ahmad."

Bird was 6-for-60 (.100) with 1 HRe run prior to going on the DL, and over 12 rehab games split evenly between Tampa and Scranton, he was 6-for-17 (.363) with 3 RBIs and 5 walks for the T-Yanks and 3-for-21 (.143) with 1 RBI and 7 walks for the RailRiders.

Yankees top prospect Gleyber Torres placed on Triple-A DL

Torres left Saturday's game with a hyperextended left elbow

The New York Yankees have dealt with a host of impact injuries this past week, but Saturday saw one of their most critical setbacks yet.

Top prospect Gleyber Torres exited the 1st game of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders' Saturday doubleheader in Buffalo after sliding into home plate and jamming his left arm, and on Sunday morning, the 20-year-old was placed on the 7-day disabled list with a hyperextended left elbow.

X-rays on Torres' arm were negative, and he will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Scranton on Monday.

After earning promotion to the Triple-A Yankees affiliate, Torres has gradually begun to thrive against the elevated competition, entering Saturday's doubleheader slashing .304/.404/.433with 6 extra-base hits and 16 RBIs.
