The Montas move is retroactive to Saturday. Montas is 1-3 with a 6.35 ERA since coming over to the Yankees at the trade deadline. On the season, he’s 5-12 with a 4.05 ERA with the Yankees and Oakland A’s.

Acquired by New York in a trade-deadline deal that sent pitcher Jordan Montgomery to the St. Louis Cardinals, Bader hasn’t played since June because of plantar fasciitis.

Before the injury, Bader, 28, hit .256 with five home runs and 21 RBIs in 72 games. He also stole 15 bases.

The Yankees also transferred the rehab assignment of RHP Miguel Castro (shoulder strain) from Double-A Somerset to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
