NEW YORK (AP) — No sooner do the injury-ravaged Yankees finally get a player back than two more go down.

On the same day New York activated center fielder Aaron Hicks for the first time this season, third baseman Miguel Andujar and right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga were placed on the 10-day injured list.

The moves Monday left the Yankees with 13 players on the injured list. They’ve put 17 on the IL for 18 stints this year — Andujar now twice because of a small labrum tear in his right shoulder.

Runner-up for 2018 AL Rookie of the Year, Andujar was initially sidelined from April 1 to May 3. He is 3 for 34 since returning and is batting .128 overall (6 for 47) without an extra-base hit.

Loaisiga went on the IL, retroactive to Friday, with a strained pitching shoulder. Luis Cessa was tabbed to start in his place, weather permitting, on Monday night against Baltimore.

To replenish the roster, New York recalled right-hander Chance Adams and lefty Nestor Cortes Jr. from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The team also optioned outfielder Mike Tauchman to the RailRiders following Sunday’s victory at Tampa Bay, opening a spot for Hicks.
