Prior to Monday's game against the Angels in Los Angeles, the Yankees activated Corey Kluber, who is set to get the start for New York.

Aaron Boone said pregame that there isn't a hard pitch count set for Kluber, but "we'll see where we're at in the game" with him.

Kluber hasn't pitched for the Yankees since May 25 due to a shoulder injury.

Now that Kluber is returning to the rotation, Andrew Heaney, whom the Yankees acquired at the trade deadline, looks to be the odd man out and will come out of the bullpen.

In addition to the Kluber move, the Yankees announced that Zack Britton is being transferred to the 60-day IL, which could end his season.

Britton's last outing for the Yankees was Aug. 19, when he came in to pitch an inning during a win over the Minnesota Twins.

The lefty is dealing with a sprained left elbow injury that could potentially need surgery to remove bone chips, Boone noted.

Boone also said that Britton was meeting with a doctor in Los Angeles, and that they'd have a better understanding on a next step possibly later Monday night.
