Yankees call up outfielder Ryan LaMarre after brutal Tim Locastro injury

Ryan LaMarre returned to the Yankees outfield mix on Sunday, as he was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to their series finale against the Red Sox in The Bronx.

Ryan LaMarre returned to the Yankees outfield mix on Sunday, as he was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to their series finale against the Red Sox in The Bronx.

The move came after Tim Locastro was placed on the 10-day IL with what the Yankees called a right ACL injury.

Aaron Boone said Locastro tore the ACL Saturday night after Locastro banged his knee while making a leaping grab in foul territory in the first inning of their win over Boston.

Tyler Wade replaced Locastro on Saturday, as the Yankees churn through outfielders at an astounding rate.

Locastro — acquired in a trade from the Diamondbacks on July 1 to provide outfield depth — joins Aaron Judge (COVID), Aaron Hicks (season-ending wrist surgery), Clint Frazier (vision) and Miguel Andujar (wrist) on the IL.

The Yankees also recently called up Trey Amburgey and Greg Allen to provide help in the outfield and they even used Hoy Park — also just called up from SWB — in the outfield, despite his lack of experience there.

LaMarre played three games for the Yankees in May before he was sidelined with a hamstring injury.
