Yankees place A.J. Cole on disabled list with neck strain

Prior to today’s series finale against the Seattle Mariners, the Yankees announced they have placed RHP A.J. Cole on the disabled list with a left neck strain. As a corresponding move, RHP Luis Cessa has been reinstated from the 10-day DL.

Cole pitched two innings in last night’s 7-5 walk-off victory, allowing no runs and no hits with three strikeouts. But it had been a while since Cole took the mound. Prior to last night’s outing, Cole last pitched on May 28th against the Houston Astros.

It’s possible the long layoff had something to do with Cole’s recent injury, but at this point it’s mainly speculation. What we do know is Cessa is back in the Yankees bullpen, and we might not see Cole for at least two weeks.
