The New York Yankees reinstated third baseman Josh Donaldson from the paternity list on Saturday and designated first baseman Ronald Guzman for assignment.

The moves were made before the Yankees’ home game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Donaldson, 36, is batting .220 with 12 homers and 51 RBIs in 112 games this season.

Guzman, 27, was hitless in six at-bats over three games this season for the Yankees. He struck out five times.

The Yankees are in first place in the American League East Division, 3 1/2 games ahead of second-place Tampa Bay. The teams’ three-game series will conclude Sunday. The Rays won the opener 4-2 on Friday.
