TORONTO (AP) — The New York Yankees have put third baseman Alex Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list while he recovers from surgery on his right knee.

The Yankees made the move Thursday and promoted outfielder Greg Golson from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Coming off the All-Star break, New York opens a series in Toronto starting Thursday night.

Rodriguez had surgery Monday to repair a tear in his knee and is expected to miss four to six weeks. He is hitting .295 with 13 home runs and 52 RBIs, but has gone 85 at-bats with homering.

Golson played for the Yankees last year in the postseason. He is hitting .295 with five home runs and 25 RBIs in Triple-A this year.
