Just when the Yankees appear to finally be getting healthy they have another setback.
The team announced on Saturday that they have placed LHP James Paxton on the 10-day injured list with left knee imflmmation.
They recalled RHP Jake Barrett from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Paxton left Friday's game against the Twins after the third inning with soreness in his left knee and had an MRI.
While the Yankees awaited the results of the MRI, manager Aaron Boone said it was possible he could miss his next start, which is now a certainty.
Paxton said after the game that he had been dealing with knee soreness since the start of the season but has never had any knee issues prior to this season.
The 30-year-old southpaw has been the Yankees' best pitcher through the first month of the season. He is 3-2 with a 3.11 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 52 strikeouts over 37.2 innings pitched in seven starts.
