Yankees OF Maybin goes on IL with strained calf
NEW YORK (AP) - Cameron Maybin is the 21st player to go on the injured list this year for the New York Yankees, exceeding their total for the entire 2018 season.
The 32-year-old Maybin has a strained left calf. To replace the veteran outfielder on the roster, the AL East leaders recalled left-hander Nestor Cortes Jr. from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre before Sunday's game against Houston.
The Yankees acquired Maybin in a trade with Cleveland on April 25. He is batting .314 with five homers and 14 RBIs in 42 games.
Maybin got hurt in the third inning of Friday's 4-1 win over the Astros. Manager Aaron Boone said he has a Grade 2 strain and will be out for a while.
Cortes is 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA in seven appearances for New York this year.
