The New York Yankees will activate left-hander Andy Pettitte from the disabled list in time to make Tuesday’s start against the Toronto Blue Jays, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com:

Pettitte last appeared for the Yankees on June 27, when he was struck on the leg by a line drive off the bat of Cleveland Indians first baseman Casey Kotchman. The 40-year-old was later diagnosed with a fractured ankle, which has sidelined him since.

Pettitte did face a bit of a setback in July when he experienced swelling in his mending leg, but he was able to get back on track and will return in time for the home stretch of the regular season.

Prior to his injury, Pettitte had maintained an ERA of 3.22 over nine starts for the Yankees this season, after signing with the club in March.
