McKinney (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday and optioned to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre.
McKinney suffered a sprained shoulder at the end of March and has had 11 appearances since beginning his minor-league rehab assignment May 10. The 23-year-old remaining at Triple-A isn't surprising due to the Yankees' loaded outfield group.
McKinney (shoulder) is now rehabbing with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
McKinney has already played games at High-A and Double-A while recovering from a shoulder sprain. There's a good chance he remains at Triple-A after finishing his rehab assignment, as the Yankees have a loaded outfield without many at-bats to pass around.
McKinney (shoulder) will continue his rehab assignment with Double-A Trenton on Monday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
McKinney will shift his rehab to Double-A Trenton after suffering no setbacks in a trio of games with High-A Tampa. It's unclear how long the 23-year-old will stick on a rehab assignment, but given the Yankees' outfield depth, he figures to end up back at Triple-A once healthy.
McKinney (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Thursday.
McKinney is moving quickly in his rehab program, as he just started playing in extended spring training games a few days ago. It's unclear how long he'll stick with the Tarpons before returning from the disabled list, but the team may opt to keep him on a rehab assignment longer than normal since the big-league club currently has no room for him in the outfield. Otherwise, McKinney will likely end up back in Triple-A.
Cashman's revelation suggests that a minor-league rehab assignment could soon be in the offing for McKinney, who has been sidelined since March 31 after spraining the AC joint of his left shoulder in a collision with the outfield wall. The 23-year-old wasn't expected to contribute for the Yankees early in the season, but he was pressed into action with the big club after the top three center fielders on the roster -- Aaron Hicks (intercostal), Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) and Clint Frazier (concussion) -- all landed on the disabled list prior to McKinney joining them. Hicks and Frazier have since recovered from their injuries, so McKinney will likely be bound for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's eventually activated.
