    MLB Notes: Yankees place closer Aroldis Chapman on DL

    NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees have placed closer Aroldis Chapman on the 10-day disabled list with rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder.

    The Yankees announced the move Sunday before the first game of a day-night doubleheader against the Houston Astros. They called up right-hander Chad Green from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Chapman gave up a two-out RBI single by Houston's Josh Reddick in the ninth inning Saturday night and was checked by a trainer on the mound moments later. He initially remained in the game, then was removed after allowing another single. It was Chapman's first outing since blowing a three-run lead in the ninth inning last Sunday against the Chicago Cubs.

    The hard-throwing lefty helped the Cubs win the World Series last year for the first time since 1908. He re-signed with the Yankees in the offseason (see full story).

    INDIANS: Guyer heads to DL with wrist injury
    CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians have placed outfielder Brandon Guyer on the 10-day disabled list with a left wrist injury.

    Guyer underwent an MRI on Sunday, but results weren't immediately known. Playing primarily against left-handed pitchers, Guyer is batting .182 with one homer and five RBIs in 21 games.

    Indians manager Terry Francona says the wrist has been bothering Guyer for about a week and he aggravated it while taking a swing Friday. Guyer was limited to pinch-running duties Saturday.

    Utilityman Michael Martinez was designated for assignment. He was batting .364 (4 for 11) in 15 games and pitched a scoreless inning against the Chicago White Sox on April 13.

    Erik Gonzalez, who plays the infield and outfield, was recalled from Triple-A Columbus, and outfielder Daniel Robertson had his contract purchased from Columbus. Robertson was starting in right field against Minnesota lefty Hector Santiago on Sunday.
