Garcia back with club, Igarashi off to Triple-A
NEW YORK -- Yankees right-hander Freddy Garcia rejoined the club on Sunday after traveling to Venezuela for his grandfather's funeral.

Garcia had been placed on Major League Baseball's bereavement list on Thursday, and was available to pitch for the Yankees in Sunday's series finale against the Mets.

With Garcia's return, the Yankees optioned right-hander Ryota Igarashi to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Igarashi pitched an inning in Friday's 9-1 Yankees win, allowing a run, a hit and two walks while striking out two.
