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.
Today RHP David Hale elected free agency in lieu of accepting an outright assignment.
Hale has appeared in three games for the Yanks this season, posting a 2.53 ERA across 10.2 innings.
