The New York Yankees have transferred right-handed pitcher Michael Pineda from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. Pineda is done for the rest of this season.

The move was made so that the Yankees can add Caleb Smith to the 40-man roster. Pineda is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery in the near future, which would keep him out through late 2018 or even early 2019.
