The Yankees have recalled utilityman Rob Refsnyder to replace the injured Dustin Ackley. Ackley dislocated his right shoulder Sunday. Catcher Austin Romine and third baseman Chase Headley will backup Mark Teixeira. Teixeira played Sunday for the first time since receiving cortisone shots for a stiff neck that cost him four games. Meanwhile, the Yankees reinstated struggling starter Luis Severino from the DL and sent him to Triple-A Scranton. Severino, who is supposed to be the future ace, pitched three innings in a rehab start Sunday at Single-A

Mechanical issue to blame for Harvey's struggles? (1:38)

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Mets manager Terry Collins expressed "concern" Monday that David Wright may be headed for the disabled list. Wright is dealing with a neck issue and is out of the lineup for a third straight game on Memorial Day. Wright landing on the DL on Tuesday would open the 25-man roster spot for newly acquired James Loney's activation on Tuesday. Loney is expected to arrive in Queens on Monday. The Mets still will need to make a 40-man roster move to fit Loney, even if Wright is placed on the DL.
