Nick Nelson (0-2) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two in one inning as he was charged with the loss against the Rays on Friday.
Nelson made his first career start as the opener Friday but struggled in the one inning he was on the mound. He is not scheduled to open again and now has a 10.80 ERA and 10:3 K:BB in five innings this year.
Nick Nelson is expected to be added to the Yankees' 30-man roster Sunday according to the team's website.
Nelson will be used as depth for the team's bullpen. The 24-year-old posted a 4.71 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 24:7 K:BB over 21 innings (four starts) at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season.
