The New York Yankees have reactivated Bryan Mitchell off the 60-day disabled list and sent him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Mitchell had missed four months after undergoing surgery to repair a Grade Three turf toe fracture in his left big toe suffered in Spring Training.
In four rehab starts in Trenton, he surrendered 11 runs on ten hits in 12 innings of work while striking out 10 and will look to bring a stable arm to a middle relief that is penetrable, to say the least.
In 23 career appearances in the Bronx, Mitchell is 0-3 with a 5.31 ERA with 36 career strikeouts in 29.2 innings but only let up one run in 15.2 innings of work in Spring Training.
He has been sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where he will likely remain until the September 1 call-ups on September 1.
