Yan­kees’ Miller has arm in­jury

Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS -

The New York Yan­kees’ dom­i­nant bullpen took a big hit when the team an­nounced closer An­drew Miller has a left fore­arm strain and will be placed on the 15day dis­abled list.

Manager Joe Gi­rardi re­vealed the in­jury Wed­nes­day af­ter a 5-4, 11in­ning loss to the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als.

Miller told the Yan­kees about the in­jury Tues­day night but said he was feel­ing it for some time. He had an MRI exam Wed­nes­day, which showed a slight strain in his flexor mass mus­cle.

Gi­rardi said Miller will not throw for 10 days to two weeks.

Dellin Be­tances will move into the ninth-in­ning role. Miller is per­fect in 17 save chances in his first sea­son with the Yan­kees and has com­bined with Be­tances to form one of the most suc­cess­ful back­end duos in base­ball. Etc.

The San Diego Padres de­moted for­mer start­ing sec­ond base­man Jedd Gy­orko to triple-A El Paso and re­called right-han­der Nick Vin­cent. Gy­orko was hit­ting .210 with two home runs and 11 runs bat­ted in and lost his start­ing job to Cory Span­gen­berg. ... Tampa Bay Rays out­fielder Des­mond Jen­nings had arthro­scopic surgery on his left knee. There is no timetable for his re­turn. ... Cincin­nati Reds short­stop Zack Cozart hurt his right knee dur­ing the first in­ning of a game against the Philadel­phia Phillies on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon and had to be helped off the field.
