Aaron Judge was activated off the injured list and inserted into the lineup at DH on Tuesday against the Braves in Atlanta after missing two weeks with a strained calf.
Prior to the game, the Yankees also put Luis Avilan on the 10-day IL with left shoulder inflammation. The injury allowed the Yankees to recall Miguel Andujar from the alternate site in Scranton. With Gleyber Torres and James Paxton placed on the 10-day IL on Monday, the Yankees also called up right-hander Brooks Kriske from the alternate site.
Andujar has struggled this season, so far unable to adjust to his new role with the Yankees, coming off the bench as a part-time third baseman and outfielder. He entered Tuesday just 1-for-14 on the season.
