The New York Yankees selected right-hander Jake Cousins to the active roster Monday in advance of a road series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

In a corresponding move, the Yankees designated left-hander Tanner Tully for assignment. Tully, 29, had not appeared in a game this season.

Cousins, 29, was acquired Sunday in a trade with the Chicago White Sox in exchange for cash considerations.

In nine relief appearances for the Milwaukee Brewers last season, Cousins had a 4.82 ERA. He has 51 career relief appearances over three seasons, all with Milwaukee, going 3-1 with a 3.08 ERA.

Cousins is the cousin of longtime NFL quarterback Kirk Cousins.
