The Yankees launched the roster transfer — which is retroactive to Thursday — sooner than Friday’s opener of a doubleheader in opposition to the Fresh York Mets. The crew promoted high outfield prospect Estevan Florial to be the 29th man and save him within the lineup in Recreation 1 of the doubleheader.
Preserve was activated from the IL on Wednesday but aggravated the harm in a sport in opposition to the Atlanta Braves. He was eliminated from the competition within the sixth inning.
“It be loyal a recurrence of the [calf] stress that he had suffered sooner than,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone acknowledged. “The same in that or not it is low grade and rather minor, but sufficient that he needed to return on the IL. Confidently or not it is not one thing that retains him down too prolonged, but undoubtedly one thing that we have bought to proceed to work to win merely.”
Preserve has now been placed on the injured checklist four instances within the closing three seasons. He rejoins Giancarlo Stanton, D.J. LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres, James Paxton and Zack Britton on the Yankees’ IL.
The 28-year-aged Preserve is batting .292 with 9 dwelling runs and 20 RBIs in 18 video games this season.
