The Yankees have placed Cruz on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right knee, though he was designated for assignment on Friday.

Cruz has played 16 games for the Yankees this year after appearing in 45 for the Dodgers. He is hitting .145 overall this season, with 11 RBIs.

The New York Yankees have placed infielder Jayson Nix on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right hamstring and signed Cruz.

The 29-year-old Cruz was let go by the Los Angeles Dodgers last week after hitting just .127 in 118 at-bats. Cruz has played shortstop, third base and second base during stints with Milwaukee and Pittsburgh since making his major league debut in 2008.
