The Yankees have announced Carlos Beltran has been placed on the 15-day DL with an oblique strain. As a corresponding move, the Yankees have called up Gregorio Petit and Ramon Flores. The Yankees also optioned Taylor Dugas to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre.
Beltran was removed from Tuesday’s game with an undisclosed rib injury, which the Yankees thought would only keep Beltran out for a few days. With Beltran’s injury, the Yankees are hoping Jacoby Ellsbury doesn’t face any setbacks and he can return to the lineup as quickly as possible.
