The New York Yankees activated left-hander Wandy Peralta from the 10-day injured list and added him as the 27th man for Sunday’s doubleheader against the New York Mets.

Peralta, 29, joined the Yankees in a late April trade with the San Francisco Giants. He has been sidelined by a back strain and hasn’t pitched since June 18.

In 20 relief appearances with the Yankees since the trade, Peralta is 1-1 with a 5.28 ERA over 15 1/3 innings.

He went 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA and two saves in 10 games with the Giants before the trade.
