Yankees activate Brandon Drury from DL, option him to Triple-A


The New York Yankees announced they have activated INF Brandon Drury from the 10-day disabled list, and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Drury’s 20-day rehab assignment recently expired, but he was still feeling symptomatic. He was placed on the disabled list on April 7th with severe migraines and blurred vision.

The Yankees aren’t able to place Drury consecutively on the disabled list for the same injury which was why he was optioned to Triple-A. With Drury being in Scranton, it allows him to continue his rehab without a timetable.

While he is rehabbing, Miguel Andujar will stay with the Big League club for the short-term. Greg Bird, who was just transferred to Double-A Trenton for his rehab assignment, is expected to be back with the team in approximately 10-14 days.

Bird was placed on the disabled list on March 29 after undergoing surgery to remove a bone spur and calcium deposit on his right ankle. Bird began his rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on May 10th.
