Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: To serve as backup catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

With Gary Sanchez (groin) back on the disabled list, Higashioka was summoned to serve as the short-term backup behind Austin Romine. He was hitting .198 with five home runs in 209 plate appearances at Triple-A.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.

Higashioka filled a backup role while Gary Sanchez (groin) was on the disabled list, but Sanchez's return sends him back to the minors. The 28-year-old grabbed his first big-league hits in his time with the Yankees (the first three of which were all homers), though he hit just .167 in 11 games.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Back in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

He'll hit the bench for the second time this series and has returned to the backup role at catcher now that Austin Romine has recovered from the hamstring injury he first suffered June 30. Higashioka started four consecutive games while Romine was sidelined and recorded three hits, all of which were home runs.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Homers again in win over Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Braves.

The catcher has recorded the first three hits of his big-league career in the last four games, and amazingly all of them have left the yard, making Higashioka only the second Yankee in history after Alfonso Soriano to homer for his first three hits. Austin Romine (hamstring) will likely rejoin the lineup soon, but Higashioka's power display could lead to more playing time for the 28-year-old while Gary Sanchez (groin) is on the shelf.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Earns fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Braves.

Higashioka will draw his fourth straight start behind the plate with the top option on the active roster, Austin Romine, still battling a tight hamstring. Per Coley Harvey of ESPN.com, Romine said Wednesday that he's feeling "great" and hasn't endured any setbacks in his recovery from the injury, so after a team off day Thursday, the backstop could be ready to rejoin the lineup for Friday's series opener in Toronto. Once Romine is back to full strength, Higashioka, who has recorded two hits -- both homers -- over 10 at-bats in his previous three starts, will likely only be asked to play a couple times per week.
