The New York Yankees reinstated left-hander Carlos Rodon from the 15-day injured list and scheduled him to start at home Tuesday night against the Washington Nationals.
Rodon last pitched an MLB game on Aug. 6, when he went just 2 2/3 innings against the Houston Astros before leaving with a left hamstring strain.
Rodon, 30, is in the first year of a six-year, $162 million contract signed in December. After earning consecutive All-Star honors with the Chicago White Sox (2021) and San Francisco Giants (2022), Rodon missed the first three months of 2023 with forearm and back injuries before making his team and season debut July 7 against the Chicago Cubs.
In six starts for the Yankees, Rodon is 1-4 with a 7.33 ERA. He has allowed 18 walks with 25 strikeouts and given up eight home runs in 27 innings.
In other moves, New York placed outfielder Billy McKinney on the 10-day IL (retroactive to Monday) with a left lower back spasm, and designated outfielder Greg Allen for assignment.
McKinney, 28, is batting .227 with six home runs and 14 RBIs in 128 at-bats over 48 games. Allen, 30, is hitting .217 (5-for-23) in 22 games.
The Yankees also recalled outfielder Everson Pereira and infielder Oswald Peraza from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Pereira is the organization's No. 3 prospect per MLB.com, and Peraza was the Yankees' No. 2 prospect when he made his debut last season.
In 81 games this season between Triple-A and Double-A Somerset, the 22-year-old Pereira was batting .300 with a .373 on-base percentage and a .548 slugging percentage with 18 homers, 11 stolen bases and 64 RBIs.
Since being promoted to Triple-A, Pereira has slashed .312/.386/.551 with eight homers and 33 RBIs over 35 games.
Peraza, 23, is hitting .268 with 14 homers and 36 RBIs in 63 games at Triple-A. He appeared in 19 games for the Yankees earlier this season, hitting .173 with four steals and six RBIs. In 18 games with New York in 2022, Peraza hit .306 with a home run and two RBIs.
