Well that was fast.
Just two games into his tenure in the Bronx, the Yankees announced on Tuesday that utility man Dustin Ackley has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with that the team is calling a right lumbar strain.
Ackley was acquired by the Yankees from the Seattle Mariners just before the trading deadline last week, as the club's biggest deadline move while the team, for the most part, stood pat.
The 27-year-old was expected to help the Yankees at second base as well as the corner outfield, where he'd be able to spell the aging Carlos Beltran occasionally down the stretch.
For now, however, the club will have to wait for his chance to make an impact.
