The New York Yankees have placed shortstop Troy Tulowitski on the 10-day injured list with a left calf strain. Tulowitzki, a five-time All-Star, left prior to the fourth inning of Wednesday’s game against Detroit.
As of press time the Yankees have 11 players on the IL, the most in the majors thus far. Infielder Thairo Estrada was recalled Thursday from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre to fill out an infield already without Didi Gregorius and Miguel Andujar.
Signed as a free agent at the major league minimum of $555,000 to fill in for the injured Gregorius, Tulowitzki returned after missing all of 2018 following surgery on both heels and is hitting .182 in five games.
