      Yankees' Mike Ford: Sent down by Yankees

      Mike Ford was optioned to the New York Yankees' alternate training site Tuesday.Ford was on the major-league roster since the start of the season, but he saw a drop in playing time recently as he was on the bench for each of the last seven games. With Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) and Gio Urshela (elbow) returning from the 10-day injured list, Ford's services were no longer needed at the big-league level.

      Mike Ford will start at first base and bat fifth Sunday against the Red Sox.DJ LeMahieu (thumb) became the third New York Yankees regular to land on the injured list in a one-week span Sunday, joining Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) and Aaron Judge (calf). The latter two absences had already opened up more work for Ford, and his chances of earning a more stable role should only increase while LeMahieu is sidelined. Ford, who is picking up his fifth start in six games Sunday, is batting just .156 over 35 plate appearances, but three of his five hits have gone for extra bases.

      Yankees' Mike Ford: May benefits sans Stanton

      Mike Ford will serve as the New York Yankees' designated hitter and will bat sixth Sunday against the Rays, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.The Yankees will give Ford the first chance to replace everyday DH Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. While Ford should see his overall opportunities increase for the duration of Stanton's absence, the 28-year-old won't necessarily settle into a full-time role. Manager Aaron Boone could elect to use Aaron Judge at the DH spot more often, in which case Mike Tauchman would benefit from more playing time in the outfield.

      Yankees' Mike Ford: Could benefit from expanded rosters

      Mike Ford would be a candidate to make the big-league squad if MLB decides to expand rosters when play resumes, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.Ford's place on the Opening Day roster had been in question throughout the spring, and his spot seemed to grow more tenuous with the possible return to health of Giancarlo Stanton (calf) and Aaron Judge (rib) due to the delayed start of the campaign. However, talk of MLB expanding roster sizes to account for a shortened spring training has Ford solidly back in the mix. Per Kuty, the New York Yankees value Ford's experience and left-handed bat off the bench despite not necessarily needing a backup first baseman.

      Yankees' Mike Ford: Roster spot threatened by hiatus

      Mike Ford's likelihood of making the Opening Day roster is lessened with the probable return to health of Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge by the start of the regular season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.While Ford's big bat appeared to give him a leg up on a roster spot prior to the suspension of spring training, the delay to the start of the regular season figures to reduce available bench spots by two due to the anticipated return of both Judge and Stanton. Thairo Estrada, Tyler Wade and Rosell Herrera are all candidates for an Opening Day roster spot, which could bump Ford back to the minors, especially considering his limited versatility in the field. Ford didn't help his chances in spring training, as he hit .194 with only one home run during Grapefruit League play.
