Miami optioned right-hander Anthony DeSclafani and outfielder Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday night to open up the two roster spots. Yelich wound up missing exactly 15 days because of a back strain. The 22-year-old was batting .259/.342/.418 with 41 runs scored in 63 games before the injury.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
