Yankees activate Lofton from DL

Postby WebHamster » Sun May 02, 2004 2:00 pm

Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Yankees activated outfielder Kenny Lofton from the 15-day disabled list prior to Sunday's game against the Royals.

Lofton, who was suffering from a strained right quadriceps muscle, has been unhappy thus far with his role with New York. The veteran was batting .167 with four hits in 24 at-bats before going on the DL.

He was signed in the offseason to compete with Bernie Williams for the starting spot in center. However, manager Joe Torre elected to go with Williams, which prompted Lofton to become disgruntled about playing time.

In a related move, the team optioned outfielder Bubba Crosby to Triple-A Columbus.
