Via Ben Shpigel, Sergio Mitre has been placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury apparently suffered during batting practice. Boone Logan has been recalled from Triple-A Scranton to take his spot. Mitre hasn’t pitched in 11 days, and he was probably just getting some hacks in before the Yanks head out for the road leg of their interleague schedule next week. The Phillies have a lefty heavy lineup, so chances are Logan will get some action during this series. Sigh.
In better injury news, Alfredo Aceves, battling back injuries, threw 30 pitches this afternoon. Marc Carig says the Yanks’ look took the pitches from “flat ground at about 70 percent intensity, and Aceves said he “feels normal.” There is still no timetable for Aceves’ return.
