Yankees reinstate Rougned Odor from 10-day injured list, option Albert Abreu to Triple-A

The injury-riddled Yankees offense got a bit healthier Tuesday, as Rougned Odor was activated off the IL.

The move came after right-hander Albert Abreu was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Monday’s loss to the Rangers, when Abreu tossed three shutout innings.

Odor had been out since May 4, when he suffered a sprained left knee during a play at the plate.

He now gets a chance to face his former team. The Rangers designated Odor for assignment shortly before Opening Day and then traded him to the Yankees on April 6 for a pair of minor leaguers.

The struggles at the plate that led to Odor’s downfall in Texas have continued with the Yankees, but he has delivered a number of key hits.

The return of Odor could allow the Yankees to use him at third base or move DJ LeMahieu there, with Gio Urshela going to shortstop, since Gleyber Torres remains on the COVID IL and under quarantine in Tampa as of Monday.
