After placing left-handed starters CC Sabathia (strained left groin) and Andy Pettitte (fractured left ankle) on the 15 and 60-day disabled lists, respectively, on Thursday, the New York Yankees recalled right-hander Ryota Igarashi from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and selected rookie Adam Warren to their 25-man roster, signing him to a Major League contract .
Warren, 24, went 5-5 with a 3.86 ERA for this year's Scranton/WB Yankees. He is scheduled to make his big-league debut on Friday night against the Chicago White Sox, in lieu of the injured Sabathia. Through 79 appearances (all starts) made over four seasons in the minors, Warren is 26-22 with a 3.05 ERA.
Igarashi, a 33-year-old reliever, has pitched for the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays prior to joining the Yankees. His lone appearance for the team took place on June 8 vs. the Mets.
Freddy Garcia, who got the winning decision in New York's 5-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday, will take Pettitte's spot in the rotation.
