Ramiro PenaYankees infielder Ramiro Pena underwent an emergency appendectomy this morning, the New York Post reports.

Pena doesn't quite have the same name recognition as Matt Holliday or Adam Dunn, but he is a Yankee and the team is already down a third baseman in Alex Rodriguez, who is on the disabled list following knee surgery. The Post notes Joba Chamberlain, already out for the season following Tommy John surgery, had an appendectomy two weeks ago.

According to the newspaper, Pena woke up this morning and called Yankee trainers complaining about stomach pains. He was taken to a hospital in the Tampa Bay area. He is expected to miss four to six weeks and the team called up Brandon Laird from Triple-A.

Laird, who will make his major league debut when he gets into a game, is hitting .266/.296/.415 with 10 home runs and 49 RBI for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Pena has two hits in 25 at-bats this season, playing in 14 games.
