As part of a number of moves on Sunday, the Yankees activated Mark Teixeira from the 15-day disabled list and inserted him into the lineup, batting sixth and playing first base. Teixeira had not played since April 4, when he injured his right hamstring in a game against the Blue Jays.

New York also recalled right-handed pitchers Preston Claiborne and Bryan Mitchell. Infielder Scott Sizemore was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/WB, and RHP Matt Daley was designated for assignment.
