MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The New York Yankees have activated right-hander David Aardsma and outfielder Brett Gardner from the disabled list.
The Yankees announced the moves on Tuesday before they played the Minnesota Twins. Aardsma has not pitched since 2010 with Seattle. He had Tommy John surgery last year. Manager Joe Girardi says he will be cautious with how he uses Aardsma out of the bullpen with the Yankees in a tight division race.
