The New York Yankees have activated right-handed pitcher Luis Cessa from the team’s 60-day disabled list, the club has formally announced. The right-hander was originally placed on such a list back in mid-August due to an injury to his ribcage. He allowed five hits over 4.1 innings pitched during his final start of the season, finally leaving the mound after two separate visits from the club’s medical staff. Cessa was originally signed by the New York Mets in July 2008 as an international free agent. He began his professional career as a shortstop before switching to pitcher full-time in 2011, posting four winning seasons in the Mets’ farm system before being traded to the Detroit Tigers on July 31, 2015 in a deal centered around outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.
