PHILADELPHIA — The New York Yankees won’t have All-Star catcher Gary Sanchez for at least a few weeks.

Sanchez was put on the 10-day disabled list Monday because of a strained right groin. Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said before New York’s game at Philadelphia that Sanchez is expected to miss up to four weeks with a Grade 1 strain.

Austine Romine replaced Sanchez in the starting lineup.

The Yankees also optioned outfielder Clint Frazier to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and recalled catcher Kyle Higashioka and right-hander Giovanny Gallegos from the minors.

Sanchez was hurt Sunday while running out a double-play grounder at Tampa Bay.

“Gary Sanchez out of your lineup, that’s a big deal,” Boone said. “But we’ll take the positive out of it. Ro has done a great job obviously this year for us. It’s an opportunity for Higashioka to get up here and hopefully everyone can pick up the slack a little bit in his absence, but we feel like we’ll be OK offensively.”

TIGERS: No. 1 overall pick Casey Mize agreed to a minor league contract with Detroit that includes a $7.5 million signing bonus, the highest for any drafted player since 2011.

Detroit didn’t go into much detail about its 2018 plan for Mize, but it certainly sounds as if he’ll pitch in the organization at some point soon.

PHILLIES: Demoted former closer Hector Neris returned to Philadelphia and righty Edubray Ramos was placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Ramos has a right shoulder impingement. Neris was sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley last week after the right-hander posted a 6.00 ERA in 30 appearances, going 1-3 with 10 saves in 13 tries.

METS: Outfielder Brandon Nimmo received a break Monday, and it wasn’t in his hand.

Nimmo left Sunday’s game against the Dodgers in the seventh inning after getting hit on the pinkie finger of his right hand two innings earlier. X-rays taken Sunday came back negative, but Nimmo went for a precautionary MRI Monday morning. He said the MRI revealed no broken bones and he described his status as day-to-day. He said he doesn’t expect a trip to the disabled list.
