New York moved the 40-man roster to open up a slot for infielder Kramer Robertson, who was waived by Atlanta and was selected to Triple-A Syracuse. New York also activated righties Colin Holderman from the wounded list and chose him in Triple-A Syracuse.

Robertson, 27, made his major league debut for St. Louis on May 10 and went 0-1 in two games. He was claimed by Atlanta from waivers on June 5. He hit .242 this season with six homers, 23 RBIs and 16 steals for Triple-A Memphis and Gwinnett of the International League.
