The Yankees placed third baseman Gio Urshela on the COVID-19 injured list Friday afternoon due to side effects from the vaccination.
Urshela was originally in the starting lineup for the series opener vs. Tampa Bay.
DJ LeMahieu moved to third base, Tyler Wade started at second.
First baseman Mike Ford was recalled from the alternate training site to take Urshela’s spot on the 26-man roster.
Urshela can be activated from the COVID-19 injured list whenever he feels better.
