The New York Yankees announced they have placed LHP Jordan Montgomery on the disabled list with a left elbow strain.
Earlier today, the Yankees made the following roster moves:
As a corresponding move, the Yankees signed RHP David Hale to a Major League contract and selected him to the 25-man roster. While on the Mike Francesa show, Yankees manager Aaron Boone announced Montgomery is slated to miss 6-8 weeks with a flexor strain. Montgomery won’t participate in baseball activity for 2-3 weeks.
Montgomery could be out up to 2 months with flexor strain. No throwing 2-3 weeks. Out 6-8 weeks total Boone confirmed on @mikeson just now.
Domingo German, who relieved Montgomery in Tuesday night’s win, will take Montgomery’s place in the rotation. Hale will take German’s place in the Yankees bullpen.
In additional roster moves, the Yankees transferred outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to the 60-day disabled list. The Yankees also reinstated OF Clint Frazier from the 7-day concussion list and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Ellsbury was placed on the 10-day disabled list with an oblique injury in March, and then suffered a hip injury in April. Frazier suffered a concussion during the first week of Spring Training which diminished his chances of breaking camp with the team. Due to the plethora of outfielders on the Major League roster, Frazier was optioned to Scranton after completing a rehab assignment.
