Yankees' Tyler Austin: Returns from Triple-A disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin (undisclosed) was activated from the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the affiliate's 3-2 win over Pawtucket on Sunday.

Austin was sidelined for about a week and a half with the unspecified injury. The 26-year-old held his own against left-handed pitching during his time in the majors earlier this season with a .245/.317/.509 batting line (122 wRC+), but now that Greg Bird has taken over as the Yankees' everyday first baseman, Austin doesn't have an obvious path back to the big leagues.

Yankees' Tyler Austin: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 the 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 shuttle, though, and might resurface on the big-league roster when the Yankees need another bat.

Yankees' Tyler Austin: On bench again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

With Greg Bird back from the disabled list, Austin will hit the bench for the second straight contest, but it's unlikely Austin would have stuck in the lineup anyway with the Angels bringing right-handed pitchers to the hill for each of those contests. So long as he remains on the active roster, Austin should still have a clear path to at-bats against southpaws, with the lefty-hitting Bird likely to the hit the bench in those scenarios. It's thus expected that Bird's addition could prove more costly to Neil Walker, who had been occupying the larger side of the platoon at first base of late.

Yankees' Tyler Austin: Homers twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin went 2-for-4 with two two-run home runs Sunday against the Royals.

Austin took left-hander Eric Skoglund deep for both of his home runs, taking advantage of being in the lineup for only the second time in five days. After a hot start in April, Austin's performance has fallen mightily in May as he entered Sunday's game batting just .154/.179/.269 in 26 at-bats for the month. With Greg Bird reportedly nearing a return, playing time could become even more scarce for Austin the near future.

Yankees' Tyler Austin: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin is out of the lineup against Oakland on Saturday.

Austin will remain on the bench for the third time in the past four games as Neil Walker draws the assignment at first base. With left-hander Brett Anderson taking the mound Sunday, expect Austin to rejoin the starting nine for the series finale.
