Jameson Taillon’s return from the injured list didn’t last long.

The New York Yankees right-hander, who was activated pregame to make the start Tuesday night against the host Toronto Blue Jays, left after 2 1/3 innings.

Taillon appeared to aggravate his right ankle. He had been sidelined for three weeks due to a tendon injury in that ankle.

Taillon left after striking out Danny Jansen to open the third inning. He yielded one run on one hit and one walk with two strikeouts.

The 29-year-old is 8-6 with a 4.40 ERA in 28 starts during his first season with the Yankees. He pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2016-19, then missed the 2020 season after having his second Tommy John surgery.

In 110 career starts, Taillon is 37-30 with a 3.84 ERA.
