BillingsClaiborneThe Yankees just announced that they’ve placed long reliever Bruce Billings on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm.

To replace him on the roster, the team has recalled Preston Claiborne from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Billings came up on Thursday to provide a fresh arm capable of throwing multiple innings, and he did just that when Hiroki Kuroda couldn’t get through the fifth inning on Friday. Claiborne, who had a brutal spring training, has now been effective in two major-league games this season. He was actually optioned to make room for Billings on Thursday, but he’s allowed to return after just two days because he’s replacing an injured player.
