The New York Yankees have placed veteran left-hander Andy Pettitte on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left trapezious muscle, according to multiple reports. The 40-year-old was forced to exit Thursday's game against the Seattle Mariners after just 4.2 innings on Thursday. The Yankees have recalled pitcher Vidal Nuno from Triple-A to take Pettitte's place on the roster.

Yankees manager Joe Giardi said Pettitte felt "OK" on Friday and the disabled list was a possibility for the southpaw. Pettitte joins right-hander Ivan Nova as another pitcher in the Yankees starting rotation to be placed on the disabled list. Pettitte believes he will be able to return once the 15-day stint is complete.

Pettitte is 4-3 with a 3.83 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 49.1 innings of work for the Yankees this season.
