Today the Yankees will play two, retire No. 2, and make two call ups from Scranton. However, the last part was kind of last minute, and because they’ll be without their closer for quite sometime.
The New York Yankees announced they have placed closer Aroldis Chapman on the 10-day disabled list with rotator cuff inflammation. The move is retroactive to Saturday, May 13th.
In his last few outings, Chapman would periodically grab at his arm, but when asked, he would say there was nothing to worry about.
As it turns out, it was more serious than the Yankees anticipated.
Because of the injury, the Yankees were allowed to recall Chad Green from Triple-A prior to the first game of the doubleheader. The Yankees also announced they were going to call up Rob Refsnyder before the second game of the doubleheader.
