Estrada was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
With Didi Gregorius (elbow) set to come off the 60-day injured list Friday, Estrada will head to the minor leagues. He hit .304 with three home runs, 11 RBI and two stolen bases over 24 games in the big leagues since being promoted April 20.
Estrada went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-5 win at Baltimore.
Estrada received his first start in a week but still joined in on the home-run barrage against the Orioles with the 417-foot blast in the second inning. The 23-year-old is likely to continue seeing intermittent starting chances for the Yankees despite his .316/.333/.605 slash line in 38 at-bats.
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 went 2-for-4 with a stolen base Sunday in the Yankees' 11-5 win over the Giants.
Estrada was promoted to the majors 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 will be called up by the Yankees on Sunday.
Estrada will replace Aaron Judge, who suffered an oblique injury Saturday. Estrada spent three days on the big-league roster earlier this month but did not get into a game.
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 he won't end up logging a big-league at-bat before getting sent back down. Infielder Giovanny Urshela was called up in a corresponding move.
Estrada has been called up to the Yankees to replace the injured Troy Tulowitzki (calf), Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
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.
Estrada was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.
Estrada played in 11 games with the Yankees this spring and went 5-for-18 (.278) with five strikeouts. The 23-year-old missed the bulk of the 2018 season due to a back injury, making only eight appearances with the RailRiders.
Estrada (back) clubbed a home run for the Yankees in an instructional league game against the Pirates earlier this week, the Associated Press reports.
Estrada hadn't played in any minor-league games since May 7 after a back injury resulted in him spending most of the season on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Now seemingly healthy again, Estrada will look to make up for the lost at-bats by playing regularly in the instructional league and perhaps taking part in winter ball.
Estrada (undisclosed) was placed on the minor-league disabled list Wednesday.
Estrada missed the first two weeks of the season with a hip injury, but it's unclear if his current injury is related as specifics remain unclear. The move is backdated to Tuesday, so he'll be eligible to return May 15 if he proves ready. The 22-year-old was hitting just .152/.176/.182 through eight games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before landing on the DL for a second time this season.
Estrada (hip) was activated from the disabled list at High-A Tampa on Wednesday, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.
The 22-year-old had been out since suffering a gunshot wound in February. The injury did little to hamper him in his season debut, as he went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored. It's interesting that he was activated by High-A Tampa since he was expected to open the season at Triple-A, though Estrada could get to that level soon if he continues to hit like this.
Estrada (hip) will open the season on the disabled list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, MLB.com's Jim Callis reports.
He is still recovering from a gunshot wound in his right hip from a robbery attempt this winter in Venezuela. It's noteworthy that he will open the year at Triple-A, as he had previously never played above Double-A. Estrada is a great real life depth piece, as he is a quality infield defender who excels at making contact. Unfortunately, his power and speed tools are a little light for him to realistically project as a decent fantasy option, unless he ends up being a .300 hitter in the big leagues. He is also blocked by better young players at every position in New York, so a trade would help his value in deep leagues.
Manager Aaron Boone said that Estrada was shot in the right hip during a robbery attempt in Venezuela a few weeks ago but has already reported to camp and should be able to play the "bulk" of the season, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.
It's obviously a good sign that Estrada is getting back into the swing of things at camp, although there was no word on his current condition outside of Boone's statement that he's "in a good frame of mind right now." The 21-year-old will begin ramping up his cardio within the next week by doing some stationary bike work, and there should be an update on his status once he's able to begin baseball activities. In 2017, Estrada slashed .301/.353/.392 with six home runs. 48 RBI and eight stolen bases in 122 games with Double-A Trenton.
Estrada was added to the 40-man roster Monday.
The Yankees' decision to add Estrada to the 40-man roster will protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Estrada played well at Double-A Trenton during the 2017 season. Over 122 games he hit .301 with a .745 OPS and scored 72 runs.
