Yankees' Tyler Austin: Optioned to Triple-A
Austin was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Thursday's game.
As Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports, this is the corresponding transaction that will open up a roster spot for Friday starter Jonathan Loaisiga. Austin, who after Thursday action is hitting .223/.280/.471 with eight homers and 23 RBI, was having more trouble finding work against right-handed pitching after Greg Bird's return. He likely still has a ticket on the Triple-A shuttle, though, and might resurface on the big-league roster when the Yankees need another bat.
