NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees say closer David Robertson will go on the disabled list because of a strained groin.
The Yankees made the announcement after beating Baltimore 4-2 Monday in their home opener.
Robertson had an MRI earlier in the day that revealed the injury. He has posted two saves this season and has allowed one hit in three scoreless innings.
Robertson took over as the team's closer this year after the retirement of Mariano Rivera.
