The Yankees are currently without outfielders Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton as they sit on the Injured List.
The Yankees acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Indians in exchange for cash considerations on Thursday, the team confirmed.
Maybin has spent 2019 with Cleveland's AAA affiliate. New York will be his eighth MLB team in the last 15 seasons. Maybin is a career .254 hitter, slashing a career-best .315/.383/.418 in 2016 with the Tigers.
New York traded for Maybin on Thursday amid a rash of injuires throughout the roster. Aaron Judge entered the Injured List with a strained oblique on April 20. Giancarlo Stanton has been out of New York's lineup since April 1 as he battles a bicep injury.
The Yankees enter Thursday night second in the AL East at 14–10. They have won eight of their last 10 and trail Tampa Bay by one game in the loss column.
