Yankees put Donaldson, Loáisiga on IL, call up Calhoun

BALTIMORE (AP) – The New York Yankees put infielder Josh Donaldson and right-hander Jonathan Loáisiga on the injured list Saturday.

Donaldson went on the 10-day IL retroactive to Thursday with a right hamstring strain. Manager Aaron Boone had said Friday that move was likely. Loáisiga went on the 15-day IL with right elbow inflammation.

The Yankees also transferred Tommy Kahnle (right biceps tendonitis) to the 60-day IL, although Boone said that did not mean the right-hander had a setback in his recovery.

“That 60-day, I think it ends around May 28 or whatever, late May,” Boone said. “By the time he’s probably pitching in rehab games, we’re talking early, middle part of May. So hopefully we’re in that position where he’s ready to get back right before.”

New York recalled right-hander Jhony Brito from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Saturday night’s game at Baltimore, and the Yankees signed outfielder Willie Calhoun to a major league contract and selected him to the 40-man roster.

Calhoun, who played in 257 games over the past six seasons with Texas and San Francisco, signed a minor league deal with the Yankees in January.
