Yankees place Jon Berti on IL, DFA Josh Maciejewski

Following the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Cleveland Guardians in Game 1 on Saturday afternoon, the team announced a number of moves including INF Jon Berti being placed on the IL.

Berti, who was acquired from the Marlins in the spring, will be placed on the IL with a left groin strain. Manager Aaron Boone said it occurred when Berti legged out a hit in Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

"I don't think it's overly severe, but I don't have a timeline for you," Boone said.

The skipper said that he has a lot of confidence in Oswaldo Cabrera, who homered in the Game 1 win, to be in the everyday third baseman in Berti's absence.

Berti is 4-for-19 this season splitting time at third base with Cabrera.

In addition, the Yankees designated Josh Maciejewski for assignment. The left-hander has appeared in just one game this season (April 8 against Miami) and pitched a clean inning.

The Yankees signed INF Kevin Smith to a major league contract and selected him to the active roster, and called up RHP Ron Marinaccio to take Berti and Maciejewski's place on the rotation.

Also, the Yankees reinstated RHP McKinley Moore from the 15-day IL and optioned him to Triple-A. They also outrighted LHP Clayton Andrews off the major league roster and onto the Triple-A roster.
