Ryota Igarashi (NYY) was called up on Sunday, but it may just be temporary.  From the LoHud's Chad Jennings:

Lowe will pitch out of the bullpen for the Yankees, which makes David Phelps the almost certain starter on Monday. The Yankees are expected to temporarily call-up Ryota Igarashi to provide a bullpen arm for tomorrow's game.
