NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees reliever Tommy Kahnle was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with right shoulder tendinitis.

Kahnle is 1-0 with a 6.14 ERA in six appearances. With his velocity down this season, the right-hander has struck out nine and walked eight in 7 1/3 innings.

The move was made retroactive to Monday.

Before the Yankees hosted Miami, manager Aaron Boone said the club was awaiting results of an MRI but was optimistic a few days of rest will get Kahnle back on track.

To fill his spot, New York recalled right-hander Luis Cessa from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Cessa was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday and penciled in to start for the RailRiders so he would stay stretched out enough to make an upcoming spot start for the Yankees.

But once he returned Tuesday, those plans quickly changed.

Cessa entered in the sixth inning of a 9-1 loss to Miami but was removed in the eighth with a strained left oblique. He is scheduled for an MRI on Wednesday and will become the 13th player on New York's 40-man roster to go on the DL this season.
