Estrada is in the lineup, hitting eighth and playing shortstop against the Mariners on Monday.
Estrada has made just one pinch-hit appearance over the past four games, but he'll slide into the lineup for this contest against Mariners starter Felix Hernandez. He's recorded hits in six of his 18 at-bats since his promotion from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, however, with DJ LaMahieu and Miguel Andujar both recently returning from injuries, Estrada could find regular playing time hard to come by.
Estrada was promoted to the majors on April 20 to give the banged-up Yankees some extra depth in the infield and corner outfield and was thrust into action Sunday when starting second baseman DJ LaMahieu departed early due to knee inflammation. The 23-year-old proceeded to give the Yankees some quality at-bats and now has a hit in four consecutive games. The Yankees are labeling LeMahieu as day-to-day and hoping he'll avoid the injured list, but his potential absence for a few games could open up some extra playing time for Estrada.
Estrada has been optioned back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
It was a short stint at the big-league level for the 23-year-old, who was initially called up earlier this week after Troy Tulowitzki (calf) hit the injured list, but won't end up logging a big-league at-bat before getting sent back down. With Estrada going back down, the Yankees have called up infielder Giovanny Urshela and signed him to a major-league contract.
With Tulowitzki forced from the Yankees' Wednesday game against the Tigers with a strained left calf and headed to the injured list, New York has called up Estrada to take the roster spot of the veteran shortstop. The 23-year-old has no big-league experience and doesn't figure to see much playing time barring another injury. He did have a solid spring training at the dish, with a .286/.394/.464 slash line over 28 at-bats.
