SorianoThe Yankees have shelved reliever Rafael Soriano, placing him on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow injury.

It's not immediately clear what the issue is, but Soriano underwent an examination Tuesday after having already missed a week with the injury. It's likely the prudent move, as Sori simply hasn't been his old self this season with a 5.40 ERA in 15 innings, striking out 10 and walking 11.

To replace Soriano, the Yankees dipped down for outfielder Chris Dickerson, acquired from the Brewers in late spring training for pitcher Sergio Mitre. Dickerson was hitting .248/.370/.354 in 135 plate appearances for Triple-A and is in the lineup Tuesday as Nick Swisher, mired in a deep slump, will ride the pine due to an illness.

Dickerson could stick in the majors as the team was at 13 pitchers prior to the Soriano move.
