After getting struck in the face by his own liner, via ricochet, in batting practice Wednesday, Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list Thursday. He suffered a few facial fractures, too.

Knee and elbow injuries have already been a problem for Beltran this season and he is hitting just .216/.271/.401 with nine homers and 28 RBI. The 37-year-old outfielder has actually been relegated to DH since the second week of May. He signed a three-year, $45 million deal with the Yankees this past offseason.

As a corresponding move, the Yankees have recalled Yangeris Solarte from Triple-A. The 26-year-old infielder is hitting .260/.343/.393 with 14 doubles, six homers and 30 RBI in 71 games for the big-league club.
