NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Infielder Brendan Ryan has been put on the 15-day disabled list by the New York Yankees because of a strained upper back.
Nova was activated from the 60-day disabled list. Left-hander Jose De Paula was designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.
Ryan was on the disabled list from the start of the season until June 10 because of calf and hamstring injuries. He was 4-for-13 with two RBIs and a triple since his return.
New York put him on the DL retroactive to Monday.
