The Yankees placed RHP Michael Pineda on the 60-day disabled list and called up three pitchers from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes-Barre ahead of the team's doubleheader with the Red Sox on Sunday.
Pineda was placed on the DL after suffering a partial tear in his right ulnar collateral ligament.
Bryan Mitchell, Domingo German, and Caleb Smith were recalled from Triple-A, while Ben Heller and Jonathan Holder were optioned to Triple-A. Mitchell has tossed 16 innings for the Yankees this season, posting a 5.06 ERA, while German is returning to the Yankees after making his big-league debut in June.
Among those being promoted to the big leagues, Smith would be the only pitcher to make his debut. He is 8-0 with a 2.11 ERA so far this season between Double-A and Triple-A.
