The New York Yankees placed rookie reliever Ron Marinaccio on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation.

He is 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA in 17 appearances out of the bullpen this season. He has struck out 23 and walked 10 in 19 1/3 innings.

Marinaccio, who turned 27 on Friday, was drafted in the 19th round by the Yankees in 2017 and made his MLB debut on April 9.

He pitched a perfect seventh inning in Saturday’s 13-4 win at Cleveland in the first game of a doubleheader.

In a corresponding transaction, New York recalled left-hander JP Sears from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of Sunday’s series finale with the Guardians.

Sears, 26, is 3-0 with a 0.00 ERA in four games (two starts) with the Yankees. He made his big-league debut on April 13.
