Donnie Collins of the Scranton Times-Tribune tweeted a few minutes ago that the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees have placed both Manny Banuelos and Eduardo Nunez on the 7-day disabled list. For Banuelos, the move is retroactive to Saturday, while Nunez’s move is retroactive to Sunday.
Nunez has been dealing with a thumb issue. The reason for Banuelos hitting the DL is unknown, though it may have something to do with the back issue that he missed time with earlier this season. We’ll let you know as soon as we have an official update from the team on Banuelos.
Update: Banuelos has been placed on the 7-Day disabled list with a sore left elbow.
