The New York Yankees added left-handed pitcher Justus Sheffield to their major league roster. MLB.com ranks him No. 27 on the MLB.com top prospect list and No. 1 in the Yankees' system.
Sheffield, 22, was 6-4 with a 2.56 ERA in 20 appearances (15 starts) for Triple-A Scranton Wilkes/Barre. He also was 1-2 with a 2.25 ERA in five starts for Double-A Trenton. He moved to the bullpen late last month to gain more experience as a reliever.
The Yankees acquired Sheffield in the July 2016 trade that sent relief pitcher Andrew Miller to Cleveland. The Indians selected Sheffield with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2014 amateur draft.
To make room for Sheffield, the Yankees sent outfielder Clint Frazier to the 60-day disabled list. Frazier, whom the Yankees acquired in that same trade, has been plagued by the effects of a concussion since spring training.
The Yankees also recalled RHP Domingo German from Scranton in advance of Tuesday's series-opener against Boston at Yankee Stadium. Originally scheduled for a 1:05 p.m. start time, that game has been moved to 7:05 p.m. because of inclement weather.
