The Yankees announced that they have optioned Jonathan Loaisiga to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following their 6-3 loss to the Astros on Tuesday.
A corresponding move will come before Wednesday's game.
Loaisiga tossed just three innings but kept things from escalating, allowing just two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five.
He pitched just four innings but allowed one run in his last start against the Tigers.
The Yankees will likely add another arm to their bullpen after going through five pitchers on Tuesday.
