Adam Warren placed on 10-day DL with back strain

The New York Yankees have placed right-handed reliever Adam Warren on the 10-day disabled list with a right back strain, and recalled righty Jonathan Holder from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the team announced Saturday.

Warren, 30, pitched 2 2/3 innings in relief on Friday night, allowing one home run and one walk while striking out three.

Warren has posted a 3.24 ERA over 8 1/3 innings of work this season with 11 strikeouts and four walks issued.

Holder, 24, has made three appearances at the big league level this season, with six earned runs allowed over 2 2/3 innings.

The young righty has pitched out of the bullpen for parts of the last three seasons in the Bronx, posting a career ERA of 5.01 over 48 appearances.

The Yankees have sustained an incessant barrage of injuries - most notably to the pitching staff this season - as Warren becomes the latest addition to the crowded disabled list.

Stay tuned for the latest news and updates on Warren's back strain as the Yankees close out a four-game set with Toronto this weekend.
