The New York Yankees signed left-hander Anthony Banda to a contract and added him to the active roster Sunday.

The club also recalled right-hander Luis Gil from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and transferred him to the 60-day injured list.

Banda, 29, posted a 1-1 record with a 5.88 ERA in 30 games (one start) this season with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto Blue Jays.

He is 7-6 with one save and a 5.43 ERA in 78 career games (six starts) with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2017), Tampa Bay Rays (2018-20), New York Mets (2021), Pirates (2021-22) and Blue Jays (2022).

Gil, 24, has been sidelined since undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery.

He allowed four runs on five hits in four innings on May 12 in his lone start with New York this season.

Gil is 1-1 with a 3.78 ERA in seven career starts with the Yankees.
