The New York Yankees reinstated right-hander Scott Effross from the 15-day injured list Thursday.

Effross was placed on the injured list on Aug. 21 with a shoulder strain.

The Yankees didn’t announce a corresponding move.

Effross, 28, was one of several players the Yankees acquired before the trade deadline. They dealt minor league right-hander Hayden Wesneski to the Chicago Cubs to land Effross.

Effross has a 3.24 ERA over eight appearances for the Yankees, finishing two games and picking up one save.

In two career seasons split between Chicago and New York, Effross is 3-5 with a 2.96 ERA and two saves with 76 strikeouts over 67 innings.
