Estrada was optioned to the alternate training site after Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.
The 24-year-old saw regular playing time toward the end of August with DJ LeMahieu sidelined, but he's struggled with a .469 OPS in 25 games this season. Estrada may not rejoin the big-league club with the team getting healthier and with less than two weeks remaining in the regular season.
Estrada is out of the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets.
Back on the bench for the second straight game, Estrada doesn't look like he'll be in line for regular starts any longer after DJ LeMahieu (thumb) was reinstated from the injured list Saturday. Prior to the back-to-back benchings, Estrada had started seven of the previous eight contests, going 3-for-21 with a solo home run.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Estrada will serve as the team's primary second baseman while DJ LeMahieu (thumb) is on the 10-day injured list, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
The Yankees are breaking in two new starters in the middle infield, as Boone noted that Tyler Wade will step in as the main option at shortstop while Gleyber Torres (hamstring) is sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks. While the prospect of a full-time role increases Estrada's fantasy appeal, his lack of power and so-so hit tool render him a fairly low-upside option, making him best suited for AL-only or deeper mixed leagues.
Estrada is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays.
Estrada was in the starting nine for each of the past three games, but he'll give way to Tyler Wade at second base in the series finale. Considering the Yankees faced left-handed pitching twice in the previous three games, the righty-hitting Estrada could be stuck in the short side of a platoon at the keystone behind the lefty-hitting Wade.
Estrada went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over Boston.
Estrada started at third base for the first time in his career and batted seventh in the lineup. He contributed one of four Yankees homers in the contest, going deep in the fourth inning. Estrada could see a fair amount of playing time with DJ LeMahieu (thumb) on the shelf. In seven at-bats this season, Estrada has three hits and two RBI.
Estrada was called up by the Yankees on Friday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
Estrada will replace Aaron Judge on the roster, who landed on the injured list with a calf strain in a corresponding move. He'll likely serve as a utility infielder during his time with the team.
The Yankees optioned Estrada to their alternate training site Monday.
Estrada has now been optioned to the Yankees' alternate site for the third time in five days. The 24-year-old utility man likely won't be in line for a long-term stay on the active roster in 2020 unless the Yankees are without one of DJ LeMahieu, Gio Urshela, Gleyber Torres or Tyler Wade for an extended period.
The Yankees recalled Estrada from their alternate training site Sunday.
One day after optioning Estrada, the Yankees will bring him back on the active roster with the team requiring a replacement for injured outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring). While Stanton's absence creates an everyday opening at designated hitter, Estrada isn't expected to be viewed as a solution there. Instead, the 24-year-old will fill a utility infield role while he's up with the club.
Estrada was optioned to the Yankees' alternate site between the two halves of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.
Estrada's latest stay on the big-league roster lasted less than a day, and he didn't see any game action. He'll make way for reliever Ben Heller, who was recalled in a corresponding move.
Estrada was recalled from the Yankees' alternate training site Saturday.
Estrada was traveling with the Yankees as part of their taxi squad for the weekend series against the Rays, but he'll join the major-league roster as part of a string of moves made by the team Saturday. The 24-year-old has appeared in just two games this season, going 2-for-2 with one RBI and one run. He should continue to serve as infield depth during this stint with the team.
Estrada was chosen to be part of the Yankees' taxi squad this weekend, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Estrada was removed from the active roster Thursday, but he'll still be able to travel with New York for its weekend series against the Rays as part of the team's five-man taxi squad. Estrada won't be eligible to play, however, unless he is first moved back onto the active roster.
The Yankees optioned Estrada to their alternate training site Thursday.
With all MLB teams having to reduce their active rosters from 30 to 28 men ahead of Thursday's games, Estrada, Miguel Andujar and Nick Nelson were the odd men out for the Yankees. Though he's been with the Yankees since Opening Day, Estrada appeared in just two of the team's 11 games, logging base hits in both of his at-bats.
Estrada will be on the Yankees' Opening Day roster, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Estrada put on an impressive showing during camp, and he was rewarded with a spot on the major-league roster to begin the regular season. While the 24-year-old should serve as middle infield depth for the Yankees, his above-average speed could give him chances to see the field on the basepaths. Estrada made his major-league debut last season and recorded three home runs and four stolen bases while slashing .250/.294/.438 over 35 games.
Estrada hit his third intrasquad home run Friday and remains on the roster bubble, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Estrada has impressed during summer camp, but the Yankees may prefer Tyler Wade's superior speed and versatility when deciding which of the two players to include on the intial 30-man roster. Estrada swiped four bases and slashed .250/.294/.438 with three home runs across 69 plate appearances in his first taste of the big leagues last season.
Estrada could be called back up to Yankees if MLB decides to expand rosters early in the season, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.
The Yankees optioned Estrada to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday after he slashed a meager .200/.226/.233 in Grapefruit League action. While Tyler Wade appears to be the team's primary choice for a utility role, Estrada could be brought up as a second utility player and pinch-running option should the league expand rosters when the season commences, as is widely expected.
Estrada was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wikes-Barre on Thursday.
Estrada was competing for a super-utility role with the team, capable of playing second base, third base and shortstop as well as the outfield. However, it appears likely he'll begin the season in the minor leagues, where he should earn every day at-bats. Estrada did have a short stint with the Yankees to conclude 2019, recording a .250/.294/.438 line across 69 plate appearances.
Estrada will not make the Yankees' ALDS roster, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Estrada was a long shot at best to make the postseason squad, having posting a modest .250/.294/.438 slash line in 69 plate appearances this season. With Gio Urshela (ankle) and Edwin Encarnacion (oblique) in line to be cleared to play, Estrada won't be needed.
Estrada (hamstring) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday.
Estrada played a couple of minor-league rehab games over the weekend and will rejoin the big-league club after spending the last three weeks on the shelf with the hamstring strain. The 23-year-old has a .739 OPS in 61 plate appearances this season and figures to serve as a utility option off the bench.
Estrada (hamstring) will join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Matt Kardos of MLB.com reports.
Estrada played five innings at second base in his first rehab appearance with Double-A Trenton on Friday, going 3-for-3 and tying a team postseason record with five RBI. Trenton will not play again until Tuesday, so Estrada will join Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre, presumably for their playoff game Saturday. The RailRiders are down 0-2 in the best-of-five series, so the opportunity for Estrada to play additional games with the team is contingent on the outcome of Saturday's game.
Estrada (hamstring) will play for Double-A Trenton on Friday, Greg Johnson of The Trentonian reports.
Per Johnson, Estrada will not play the entire game, though the exact number of innings he will be on the field has yet to be determined. The 23-year-old has been out of action since being placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring Aug. 18.
