Corey Kluber, who hasn’t pitched in a major league game since May 25, will make his return to the Yankees’ rotation next Monday against the Angels, Aaron Boone said Thursday night.
The veteran RHP, whose second-to-last start for New York was a no-hitter, has been sidelined with a strained right shoulder.
“He feels really good and is ready to take on that next step of facing major league competition,” Boone said.
Andrew Heaney will likely shift to a bullpen/long relief role with Kluber’s return, added Boone.
Kluber pitched in three rehab starts in anticipation of his upcoming return, most recently on Tuesday for the Somerset Patriots.
