Masahiro Tanaka reinstated, David Hale elects free agency

Prior to Tuesday’s game against the Orioles, the team announced that Masahiro Tanaka has been reinstated from the disabled list.

Tanaka has been sidelinded since June 9 after straining both of his hamstrings while running the bases. In 13 starts this season, the righty is 7-2 with a 4.58 ERA.

In other pitching news, David Hale was designated for assignment back on July 7th. Rather than accepting an outright assignment, he has elected to become a free agent.

Hale has appeared in three games for the Yanks this season, posting a 2.53 ERA across 10.2 innings.
