Yankees returned Rule 5 pick RHP Brad Meyers to the Nationals.

The Nationals have assigned him to Triple-A Syracuse. Meyers, 27, didn't pitch at all this season due to a right shoulder injury suffered while working out last offseason.

Yankees transferred RHP Brad Meyers from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Ryota Igarashi on the active roster. Meyers hasn't pitched since early April due to a right labrum strain.

Yankees placed RHP Brad Meyers on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26, with a right labrum strain.

Meyers, who was selected from the Nationals in December's Rule 5 Draft, didn't appear in a game this spring after injuring his should while working out during the offseason. The timetable for his return isn't yet clear, but he'll likely need to spend a couple of weeks in the minors before being a legitimate consideration for a call-up.

Yankees selected RHP Brad Meyers from the Nationals in the Rule 5 draft.

Meyers, 26, has been used almost exclusively as a starter in the minors, but if he's going to stick with the Yankees, it will be as a long reliever. The former fifth-round pick has a nice minor league track record, having posting a 2.86 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 378/105 K/BB ratio over 453 frames. He spent most of 2011 at Triple-A, holding a 3.48 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 17 games -- 16 starts.
