Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Sent down to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Higashioka simply wasn't getting it done during his brief first stint in the majors, as he was unable to record a single hit in 20 plate appearances. The Yankees will likely want to see some noticeable improvement at the plate at the minor-league level in order for him to have a chance rejoining their big-league team later on this season.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Batting eighth Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka is batting eighth and catching Saturday.

The rookie makes his second career start as the Yankees face Carlos Martinez and the Cardinals. Higashioka went 0-for-4 with a run scored in his debut earlier this week and will continue to serve as the backup catcher until Gary Sanchez (biceps) returns.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Still considered backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka will occupy the Yankees' backup catcher role with Gary Sanchez (biceps) absent, Brendan Kuty of The Star-Ledger reports.

Higashioka will spell starter Austin Romine on occasion (perhaps to pair with fellow rookie Jordan Montgomery), but he's the clear understudy for at least the next few weeks while Sanchez is sidelined. Higashioka likely will return to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre upon Sanchez's activation.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Set for first start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka will make his first major league start against the Rays on Wednesday, starting at catcher and batting eighth.

With Gary Sanchez (biceps) on the mend and Austin Romine slumping to a .111 average, Higashioka will have his chance to shine right away. After spending last season in Triple-A, the 26-year-old impressed with a .296 batting average over 20 Grapefruit League games this spring, so the Yankees have already seen his potential. If he can string together a few solid starts, he may be in line for a permanent promotion upon Sanchez's return.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees recalled Higashioka from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

A strong spring training helped vault Higashioka up to third on the organizational depth chart at catcher, and with Gary Sanchez (biceps) landing on the DL, the 26-year-old will now get his first taste of the big leagues. The Yankees figure to hand Austin Romine the bulk of the starts behind the plate during Sanchez's absence, but Higashioka could cut into Romine's workload if he impresses in the initial opportunities he receives.
