The New York Yankees have placed OF Carlos Beltran (concussion) on the seven-day disabled list because of a concussion. The team also recalled 3B Yangervis Solarte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Beltran will be sidelined, so owners should look to stash him on their bench for now. Solarte could receive playing time at third base and designated hitter while he is up with the team and could be a short-term option if available in AL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

The New York Yankees have placed 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring.

Yangervis Solarte is expected to see most of the starts at the hot corner now. Take a look at the utility infielder in AL-only formats.
