• The Yankees claimed first baseman Travis Ishikawa off waivers from the Orioles on Sunday. Third baseman Kevin Youkilis was transferred to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Ishikawa on the 40-man roster.

Ishikawa is batting .316 with seven home runs and 31 RBIs in the Minor Leagues so far this season. He was 2-for-17 in six games for the Orioles.
