Cameron Maybin stayed on the roster after Aaron the judge's return, but went down with a strained left calf Friday and was put on the 10-day injured list Sunday.
"I didn't want to say I'm frustrated," said Maybin. "I am more bummed about the situation. But it happened and I have to take care of it and get back quickly as I can."
Aaron Boone, whose team lost 9-4 to Astros at the stadium at Sunday, the Yanks said Maybin misses about six weeks, but Maybin believes he can be back before.
"I feel better today, and I'm pretty optimistic," he said. "… They always say that people from the south heal faster."
With Maybin on IL, Nestor Cortes Jr. summoned from Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre after being sent down Thursday to make room for a judge. 1
Yankees played a man short Saturday when Cortes was not & # 39; t available for pitch and they wanted to get him back at some point. After Maybin went to IL, Cortes could be revoked less than 10 days after being given the opportunity.
The leftist should be able to get out of the bullpen Monday when CC Sabathia is scheduled to start against Toronto.
