Baltimore, Maryland 2021-06-12 14:19:08 –
The New York Yankees have activated veteran left-handed rescuer Zack Britton from Saturday’s 60-day injured list.
Briton, 33, had surgery to remove bone fragments from her left elbow in March.
After starting his career at the Baltimore Orioles in 2011, Briton was traded to the Yankees in July 2018. In 111 games against the Yankees, he is 5-3, ERA is 2.14 and saves are 14.
In the shortened 2020 season, Britton posted a 1-2 record and 1.89 ERA with eight saves in 20 games.
To make room for Britton on the 40-person roster, the Yankees have assigned first baseman Mike Ford to the assignment. In 22 games of the season, Ford scored three home runs and five RBIs, hitting .133 with 23 strikeouts in 60 at-bats.
In another move, New York chose right-handed Brooks Crisky (0-0, 11.25 ERA) for Triple A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre and assigned right-handed Luis Severino rehabilitation high from Low A Tampa. A Valley moved to Hudson.
Severino, 27, missed much of the 2019 regular season due to inflammation of the rotator cuff on his right shoulder and grade 2 latitude tensions. After more than 30 consecutive seasons in 2017 and 2018, Severino made a total of five starts in 2019, throwing only 12 innings in the regular season and 81/3 in the playoffs.
He underwent Tommy John surgery in February 2020.
