The New York Yankees placed standout reliever Jonathan Loaisiga on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right shoulder strain.

The 26-year-old right-hander is 9-4 with five saves and a 2.25 ERA in 54 appearances out of the bullpen in 2021. Loaisiga has struck out 66 batters and walked 15 in 68 innings.

MLB Network said the injury was a strained rotator cuff and that Loaisiga will not throw for at least 10 days.

Since making his debut with the Yankees in 2018, Loaisiga is 16-6 with a 3.42 ERA in 90 games (11 starts).

In a corresponding move, New York recalled right-hander Albert Abreu from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of Sunday afternoon’s series finale in the Bronx against the Baltimore Orioles.

Abreu, 25, is 2-0 with one save and a 4.08 ERA in 20 relief appearances with the Yankees this season.
