Yankees Place Lance Berkman on 15-Day DL, Promote Eduardo Nunez

Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Yankees placed designated hitter Lance Berkman on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right ankle.

The move is retroactive to Aug. 16, a day after Berkman was injured while running out a ground ball in the sixth inning of a 1-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals. The five-time All-Star will be eligible to return to the Yankees for the team’s Sept. 1 home game against the Oakland Athletics.

The Yankees recalled infielder Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill Berkman’s roster spot. Nunez is hitting .289 in AAA and will provide depth at third base with Alex Rodriguez nursing a left calf strain.

Berkman is hitting .179 with four runs batted in and no homers since he was acquired from the Houston Astros on July 31. The Yankees are 5-7 in that span.
