  • Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Goes deep again Sunday

    Higashioka went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a loss to Toronto on Sunday.

    Higashioka hit one of five New York homers in the contest, swatting a 426-foot solo shot in the sixth inning. The backstop didn't go deep in any of his first 34 contests this season but has since left the yard in three of his past four games. Over that stretch, he is batting .313 (5-for-16) with four homers, seven RBI and five runs.

  • Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Three-run blast in win

    Higashioka went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer during Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rays.

    Higashioka's three-run homer off Rays starter Shane McClanahan ended up being the difference during Wednesday's win. After not hitting a home run over his first 34 games, the backup catcher has three homers and five RBI over his last two appearances. Higashioka is still slashing just .177/.229/.313, but he's certainly trending in the right direction.

  • Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: On bench again Tuesday

    After picking up three starts in a four-game stretch to close out the weekend, Higashioka now finds himself on the bench for the second day in a row.

  • Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Belts three-run double

    HIgashioka went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and three RBI in Friday's 12-2 win over Kansas City.

    Higashioka's lone hit of the game was a big one, as it cleared the bases and gave New York a 10-run lead. The double was a much-needed knock for the backstop, who had previously registered only one extra-base hit and one RBI all season. Higashioka had a great spring but is slashing just .143/.213/.190 through 48 regular-season plate appearances.
