Eduardo Nunez placed on disabled list with left rib cage tightness
As expected, Eduardo Nuñez, who hasn’t played since last Sunday because of tightness in his left rib cage, was placed on the disabled list, retroactive to May 6. Alberto Gonzalez, an infielder who can play short, second and third, was called up from Triple-A Scranton after being acquired Thursday from the Cubs.
“Can field a little bit,” one NL scout said. “No bat.”
Girardi said the Yankees like his versatility. “Very good defender,” Girardi said. “Happy to have him.”
