NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s September, and you know what that means.

More players.

On Tuesday, the Yankees recalled catcher John Ryan Murphy and right-handed pitchers Preston Claiborne, Bryan Mitchell and Chase Whitley from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. New York has also added lefty Rich Hill and outfielder Chris Young to the big-league club.

Young signed a one-year, $7.25 million deal with the crosstown Mets in the offseason. A major disappointment, the veteran batted .205 with eight home runs and 28 RBIs in 88 games for the Amazin’s.

The former All-Star was released by the Mets in August, and he subsequently signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees.

Rounding out the promotions, the Yankees signed outfielder Antoan Richardson and right-hander Chaz Roe to major-league contracts and added them to the active roster.

Outfielder Slade Heathcott and starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka have been transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Right-hander Matt Daley has been released and outfielder Zoilo Almonte was designated for assignment.
