MLB Note - New York Yankees Austin, Tyler

Aug 18, 2017 - 8:03 AM 1B Tyler Austin was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Thursday, when he went 2-for-4 in the Yankees' 7-5 win over the Mets. This is the second trip to the majors this season for Austin, who played four games with the Yankees in late June before suffering a right hamstring injury. Following a rehab assignment, he was optioned to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Aug. 11, though he is returning before a 10-day minimum stint at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre because he's taking the place of injured 1B Garrett Cooper (left hamstring). While he started Thursday, Austin is expected to backup IF Chase Headley at first base. Austin is batting .235 with one homer and two RBIs this season for the Yankees.
