Yankees transfer Josh Donaldson to 10-day injured list

The New York Yankees made a couple of roster moves before Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The team transferred third baseman Josh Donaldson from the COVID-19 injured list to the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation. The move is retroactive to Tuesday. New York also transferred reliever Chad Green to the 60-day injured list after undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery earlier this week.

The Yankees originally placed Donaldson on the COVID-19 list Monday, the same day that Major League Baseball gave him a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for calling Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson “Jackie,” a reference to Jackie Robinson that Anderson and his team felt was racist. Donaldson is appealing the punishment.

The 36-year-old is hitting .238 this season with five home runs, eight doubles, and 15 RBIs.
