Left-hander Jacob Lindgren brought up by Yankees


NEW YORK (AP) -- Left-hander Jacob Lindgren has been brought up from the minor leagues by the New York Yankees, who were short on relief pitching going into a series finale against Texas.

The 22-year-old is 1-1 with a 1.23 ERA in 15 relief appearances for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, striking out 29 in 22 innings.

Lindgren was selected by the Yankees in the second round of last year's amateur draft with the 55th overall pick.

New York transferred shortstop Brendan Ryan to the 60-day disabled list before Sunday night's game. The Yankees opened a spot on the active roster by optioning right-hander Branden Pinder to Scranton after he threw 48 pitches over three innings in Saturday's 15-4 loss. New York lost 10-9 to Texas on Friday night.
