PHOENIX (AP) - New York Yankees infielders DJ LeMahieu and Gio Urshela were available for the opener of a two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks after recently suffering injuries.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said both players would be on the bench for Tuesday night’s game.

LeMahieu left Sunday’s game against San Francisco in the third inning with right knee inflammation after fouling a ball off his leg two days earlier.

Urshela was removed in the fifth inning of the same game after being hit on the left hand by a pitch from Nick Vincent. X-rays were negative on both players.

New York has had 15 players on the injured list this year, with only catcher Gary Sánchez and left-hander CC Sabathia returning.



Two more could join them soon.

Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer and was hit by a pitch during a rehab appearance with Single-A Tampa on Tuesday night. He went 1 for 3.

Tulowitzki has not played since April 3 because of a strained left calf.

Third baseman Miguel Andújar went 0 for 4 and had two errors in seven innings for Tampa. He has been sidelined since tearing the labrum in his right shoulder on March 31.
