Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Off disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka (shoulder) is off the 7-day DL at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

With the Triple-A playoffs in full swing, Higashioka returned to the club last Friday after missing about three weeks with a shoulder strain. The Yankees acquired another catcher in Erik Kratz for their 40-man roster during that span, but Higashioka could still be in line to be called up as added catching depth once the minor league season comes to an end.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka began a rehab assignment Wednesday after he had been on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with a shoulder strain, DJ Eberle of the Wilkes Barre Times-Leader reports.

Higashioka missed just about two months with a back injury and his return lasted just one day, as the shoulder ailment popped up in mid-August right after he returned to the Triple-A club. It appears as though the 27-year-old catcher is nearing his way back again, but with time running out on the season, the injury setbacks could hurt his chance of receiving a September call up.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Back in action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka (back) was activated off the 7-day DL at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

The catcher ended up missing just about two months with the ailment, and after a brief rehab assignment at the lower levels of the minors, he was back behind the plate Friday for the Triple-A squad. Higashioka is hitting .333 with seven home runs in 19 games at all levels of the minors this season, and he figures to remain the top replacement option behind the plate if the Yankees need an extra catcher.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Out since June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higashioka has been on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since June 22.

Higashioka has gotten a couple chances with the big-league squad this year, but he got hurt just two games after heading back to the minors and has been out over a month. While the catcher went 0-for-18 in the majors, he's slashing .286/.340/.490 at Triple-A, so whenever healthy, Higashioka figures to be the first man up if the Yankees need catching depth.

Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Higashioka was called up to the Yankees earlier in the weekend with Gary Sanchez (groin) hurting, but with Sanchez set to rejoin the lineup Sunday, the team had no further need for a third catcher. The Yankees activated closer Aroldis Chapman (shoulder) from the disabled list to take Higashioka's spot on the 25-man roster.
