New York also designated left-handed pitcher Joe Mantiply for assignment, released left-handed pitcher Daniel Camarena (currently injured and unavailable), and promoted right-handed pitcher Adonis Rosa from Triple-A and placed him on the active roster.
The @Yankees designated LHP Joe Mantiply for assignment, released LHP Daniel Camarena, returned RHP Jonathan Loaisiga from rehab & reinstated him from the 60-day I.L., and signed RHP Adonis Rosa to a ML contract & selected him to the 25-man roster from Triple-A @swbrailriders.— Yankees PR Dept.

Loaisiga has been on the shelf since May 13 with a right shoulder strain. Before missing the last three months, Loaisiga made four appearances (three starts) for the Yankees, where he posted a 4.50 ERA with 13 strikeouts over 14 innings, not looking quite himself during his entire tenure.
Expect him to come out of the Yankee bullpen at the outset, likely following an opener.
Rosa, 24, will be making his major league debut for the Yankees whenever he appears. In 21 games (nine starts) between Double-A and Triple-A, Rosa posted a 7-1 record with a 4.02 ERA.
Mantiply being DFA'd comes a day after he earned his first career MLB win, as he went three innings on Monday in the second game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles.
Camarena, 26, made 18 appearances (16 starts) at Triple-A and posted a 6.27 ERA over 103.1 innings.
