Jonathan Loaisiga back on IL as Yankees call up Chance Adams

On the day the Yankees finally got Aaron Hicks back into the lineup, they lost Jonathan Loaisiga to a right shoulder strain.

The right-hander was scheduled to start Monday, but was scratched for Luis Cessa. Instead, he became the latest Yankee to hit the 10-day injured list.

He was replaced on the roster by Chance Adams, who had been slated to start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, before the game was rained out.

Loaisiga was in the rotation because James Paxton was already on the IL with left knee inflammation. Loaisiga has dealt with shoulder issues during his career.

Hicks was slated to hit leadoff and play center field against the Orioles in The Bronx to open a homestand. Mike Tauchman was optioned to SWB to make room for Hicks.
