NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Yankees have sent right-hander Brett Marshall back to the minors after a lengthy relief stint in his major league debut.

The Yankees promoted right-hander Dellin Betances from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The team made the moves Thursday.

Marshall threw 108 pitches over 5 2-3 innings Wednesday night. Manager Joe Girardi left him in during a 12-2 loss to Seattle, trying to preserve his bullpen.

Marshall allowed five runs on nine hits and five walks. The 23-year-old was optioned to Triple-A.

Betances made his big league debut in 2011 when he pitched two games for the Yankees. The 25-year-old has been in the minors since then, and is 3-2 with a 5.40 ERA at Triple-A this year.
