New York Yankees

The New York Yankees have placed Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list with right rotator cuff inflammation. 

Just after one night in which Anthony Swarzak fell apart and blew a 5-3 New York Yankees lead, he has been placed on the disabled list, per New York’s PR Department.

Swarzak has had a miserable year in pinstripes, as his 5.90 earned run average average on the year has crippled the already frail middle relief.

Over his last 6.1 innings of work, the righty has surrendered six runs on nine hits giving him an abominable 8.53 ERA over the last seven days.

To take his spot on the roster will be Ben Heller – one of the prospects acquired from the Andrew Miller deal – who has been recalled from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Between three levels of minor league baseball throughout the Cleveland Indians and Yankees’ organization this season, Heller owns a 1.69 ERA over 49 games.
