Yankees' Starlin Castro Placed on 10-Day DL with Hamstring Injury

Wade earned the promotion by batting.313 with 5 home runs and 24 steals in 325 plate appearances (70 games) for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. He was replaced in the field by Rob Refsnyder in the bottom of the second.

Castro suffered a strained right hamstring while running out a ground ball on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series at the Chicago White Sox.

After a month on the concussion DL, Jacoby Ellsbury returned to the Yankees' lineup on Monday night and scored twice as the Yankees chased lefty starter David Holmberg during a three-run sixth.

New York Yankees infielder Tyler Wade is expected to replace Starlin Castro (hamstring) on the active roster, reports Jack Curry of YES Network.

The Yankees have lost 10 of their last 13 games, and their win Monday did not come easy.

Hicks is hitting.290 with a.398 on-base percentage. Wade has been one of the best hitters in the entire International League so far this year. His promotion has been something I personally have been looking forward to for some time. Webb made a pair of scoreless appearances last week for NY.

After the game, neither manager Joe Girardi nor Castro was certain if the second baseman would end up on the DL.

Hopefully, Tyler Wade can help NY do just that and maintain their AL East lead.
