The Yankees reinstated pitchers CC Sabathia and Adam Warren from the 10-day disabled list before Tuesday afternoon’s game against the Blue Jays at the Stadium.

Sabathia will start Tuesday’s game, pushing Luis Cessa out of the rotation.

“I feel good and I’m ready to go,” Sabathia said Monday.

Sabathia, who is 7-2 with a 3.46 ERA in 13 starts, last started June 13 in a 3-2 loss to the Angels. He exited after four innings with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain and a prognosis that originally said he could miss at least four weeks. Sabathia, who is 5-0 with a 0.99 ERA in his last six starts, beat that timetable.

Warren had been on the disabled list since June 16 with right shoulder inflammation.

The Yankees also announced that pitchers Domingo German and Bryan Mitchell were optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
