The New York Yankees reinstated three players off the 10-day injured list Tuesday, including slugger Giancarlo Stanton.

Infielder Gio Urshela and right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga were also reinstated while infielder Mike Ford and utilityman Miguel Andujar were optioned to the team’s alternate training site to make room on the roster.

Stanton, who missed more than a month with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, has played in just 14 games. He’s batting .293/.453/.585 with three home runs, seven RBIs and 10 runs scored. He was placed on the IL on Aug. 9.

New York placed Urshela on the 10-day-injured list on Sept. 4 because of a bone spur in his right elbow. The 28-year-old is batting .272 with six homers and 23 RBIs in 31 games this season.

Loaisiga was put on the IL for an undisclosed reason. The righty last pitched Sept. 1 and he owns a 2-0 record with a 3.18 ERA over 17 innings.

Andujar, who had committed four errors in 13 games in the field, was hitting .242 with a home run and five RBIs.

Ford was hitting .135/.226/.270 in 84 plate appearances with two home runs, 11 RBIs and 16 strikeouts.
