The Yankees designated Steve Pearce and Justin Thomas for assignment Tuesday to make room on their roster for Brett Gardner and David Aardsma.
Pearce and Thomas were designated to make room on New York’s roster for outfielder Brett Gardner and right-hander David Aardsma, who were activated from the 60-day disabled list last night.
Thomas, 28, appeared in four games with the Yankees this season, allowing three runs over three innings of work. The southpaw spent most of the year with the club’s Triple-A affiliate, posting an ERA of 3.45 over 57 1/3 innings.
