Yankees Activate Former All-Star Closer

He's finally back. 

The New York Yankees have activated pitcher Zack Britton from the 60-day injured list. 

He will be active for Thursday's game against the Boston Red Sox. 

Whenever Britton gets into a game, it will be the first time since August 19th of last season, after suffering yet another elbow injury, knocking him out long-term. 

The thirty-four-year-old posted a 1.35 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and seven strikeouts over 6.2 innings in his minor league rehab assignment. He made eight appearances and started one game.
