DJ LeMahieu has been activated from the 10-day injured list and was in the lineup, batting leadoff, for Saturday’s game against the Mets.
LeMahieu sustained a left thumb sprain on Aug. 15 against the Red Sox, stating that the injury was similar to one he experienced in 2018 while with the Rockies.
At the time of his injury, LeMahieu was leading the American League in hitting, compiling a line of .411/.456/.534 with two homers and eight RBIs in 19 games.
In a corresponding move, the Yankees optioned infielder/outfielder Miguel Andujar to their alternate site in Moosic, Pa.
