TAMPA, Fla. -- The Yankees announced on Tuesday that they have claimed right-hander Dan Otero off waivers from the Giants.

Otero, 28, had no record and a 5.84 ERA in 12 relief appearances over three stints with San Francisco last season. He was 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in eight appearances with the Giants this spring.

In a corresponding move to make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees placed left-hander Cesar Cabral on the 60-day disabled list.
