The New York Yankees made a couple of roster moves before Saturday’s game against the Detroit Tigers at Yankee Stadium.
The team reinstated right fielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton from the 10-day injured list. To make room for him on the 26-man roster, infielder/outfielder Miguel Andújar was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Stanton missed nine games with right ankle inflammation. The slugger is in Saturday’s lineup, batting cleanup as the designated hitter. Before landing on the injured list, Stanton was hitting .285/.339/.523 in 168 plate appearances with 11 home runs.
Andújar appeared in 12 games, slashing .268/.279/.317 through 43 plate appearances while mostly playing left field.
