Coke was placed on the 7-day DL with an undisclosed injury Monday, LoHud.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The exact circumstances of the injury remain unclear, but more should become available if it's more than just a minor setback. The lefty struggled in limited big league appearances this season, but has worked to an impressive 0.83 ERA in five appearances (four starts) with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Coke was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, LoHud's Chad Jennings reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was designated for assignment earlier in the week and will predictably head to Triple-A, going unclaimed by other teams. Coke should continue to offer organizational left-handed bullpen depth.

Coke was designated for assignment Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty saw his ERA balloon to 6.00 after a rough outing Monday in Arizona in which he allowed three earned runs over 2.0 innings of work. Now that he's been designated for assignment, Coke will be available on waivers and he could be claimed by a team looking to add bullpen depth.

The Yankees called up Coke from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Coke will take the place of CC Sabathia, who landed on the disabled list with a groin injury. Coke, who tossed seven scoreless innings and struck out eight batters over two appearances with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, will grab a spot in the Yankees' bullpen for now.

Coke pitched two shutout innings, striking out two in Sunday's victory over the Red Sox.

Making his first appearance of the season for the Blue Jays, Coke showed why he was Joe Girardi's left-handed option out of the Yankees bullpen in 2009. His peripherals aren't great and he struggles against both lefties and righties, making him not a true LOOGY nor a consistent middle reliever. He has never held an ERA below 3.75 when pitching at least 15 innings in a season and should be owned accordingly.

Coke will reportedly be called up Friday to face the Red Sox, Mike Wilner of BlueJays Talk reports.

Coke will be called up to add a left-hander in the bullpen, particularly against the Red Sox this weekend - the southpaw has been dominant against the Red Sox' David Ortiz, who has gone 2-for-21 career against Coke. He posted a 6.30 ERA in 10 innings with the Cubs this season before being released.
