The New York Yankees made several roster moves ahead of Saturday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles.
The team placed reliever Michael King on the 60-day injured list with a fractured elbow and recalled reliever Clarke Schmidt from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. King suffered the injury in Saturday’s 7-6 victory. Manager Aaron Boone told reporters that King will miss the remainder of the season.
Additionally, the Yankees optioned outfielder Tim Locastro to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and selected the contract of reliever Shane Greene and added him to the active roster.
Schmidt has pitched to a 3.00 ERA in 14 appearances (one start) this year at the big-league level.
Greene will wear a Yankees uniform for the first time since 2014. The 33-year-old had a 3.86 ERA in 15 appearances at Triple-A this season.
Locastro has hit .240/.321/.480 with two home runs, four RBIs, and six stolen bases in 19 big-league games.
