NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees have recalled 6-foot-10 pitcher Andrew Brackman from the minors.

The AL East leaders made the move before Thursday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Brackman split this season between Class-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton. The right-hander went a combined 10-11 with a 3.90 ERA.

The Yankees also will have Triple-A catcher Jesus Montero and minor league pitcher Dellin Betances join them. They were not added to roster, but will be with the Yankees to get a taste of big league life.
