Oswaldo Cabrera joining Estevan Florial as Yankees call-up

Young reinforcements are headed for The Bronx — perhaps to deliver the spark the Yankees have been needing.

Oswaldo Cabrera and Estevan Florial are expected to be called up from Triple-A on Wednesday, ahead of the series finale against the Rays. The Yankees, who have lost 11 of their last 13 games, had not announced any roster moves as of Wednesday morning. But The Post’s Jon Heyman confirmed Florial’s promotion, and Cabrera appeared to confirm his own call-up (which was first reported by El Extra Base) in an Instagram post late Tuesday night.

While Florial fills a need in center field in the midst of Aaron Hicks’ extended struggles, Cabrera can provide defensive versatility and a hot bat. It’s possible he could be a roster replacement for DJ LeMahieu, who has missed the last three games with inflammation in his toe and could need a stint on the injured list, though manager Aaron Boone was still holding out hope Tuesday night he could avoid it.
