Yankees place Britton on IL, send Andújar back to Alternate Training Site

Zack Britton recorded a Major League-leading eight saves while filling in for Aroldis Chapman as the Yankees’ closer, but the left-hander’s first outing after being pushed back in the pecking order did not go nearly as well.

After he was saddled with the loss in the Yanks’ 4-2 defeat on Wednesday, Britton was placed on the 10-day injured list on Thursday with a left hamstring strain. The club also optioned infielder/outfielder Miguel Andújar and recalled right-handers Ben Heller and Miguel Yajure from its alternate training site.

Britton sustained the injury on his final pitch of the eighth inning, which the Rays’ Willy Adames laced into right field for a run-scoring single.
