Starlin Castro latest Yankees player to land on 10-day DL

The New York Yankeesplaced second baseman Starlin Castro on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a right hamstring strain.

The move comes a day after Castro hurt his leg while trying to beat a ground ball that ended the third inning of a 6-5 win against the Chicago White Sox.

After the game,neither manager Joe Girardi nor Castro was certain if the second baseman would end up on the DL. Castro was set to have an MRI on Tuesday.

Castro, 27, has had a first half that might make him worthy of an AL All-Star selection. He is batting .313 with 12 homers and 45 RBIs. If he is selected, this would be his fourth time as an All-Star and first with the Yankees.

In the corresponding roster moves Tuesday, the Yankees selected infielder/outfielderTyler Wadefrom Scranton-Wilkes Barre, recalled left-hander Tyler Webbfrom the RailRiders and optioned right-hander Jonathan Holder to the Triple-A club.

Wade, a touted prospect, was hitting .313 with five home runs and 59 runs scored in 71 games for Scranton.

The Yankees already are without Aaron Hicks, who was placed on the DL with a right oblique strain Monday that could keep him out for three or four weeks. CC Sabathia, Greg Bird and Adam Warren are also on the DL.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are still trying to figure out what exactly is wrong with designated hitterMatt Holliday. Holliday missed his third game in a row Tuesday night, and manager Joe Girardi said Holiday's body feels zapped of any energy.

The Yankees sent him for blood tests on Monday, but found no illnesses. If Holliday's situation doesn't improve soon, Girardi indicated the Yankees will have to consider putting him on the disabled list.

Information from ESPN's Andrew Marchand was used in this report.
