Yankees activate Luis Severino from injured list, option Miguel Andújar

The New York Yankees made some roster moves ahead of Wednesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Starting pitcher Luis Severino was activated from the 60-day injured list, and utilityman Miguel Andújar was sent back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Severino returns to the rotation after missing about two months with a low-grade right lat strain. He has not appeared in a big-league game since July 13. The right-hander has started 16 games this season and owns a 3.45 ERA over 86 innings.

Andújar has been up and down from Triple-A all season. In 27 games with the Yankees, the 27-year-old has slashed .229/.250/.531., with one home run and eight RBIs.
