Weekly Check In: Tyler Austin

Tyler Austin may or may not have received a bit of a punch to the gut this week when the team decided to call up Slade Heathcott when Jacoby Ellsbury was added to the 15 day disabled list. I think many thought it was a foregone conclusion that Ramon Flores, who is on the 40 man roster already and who has been impressive in Scranton this season, would get the call rather than calling someone up who was not already on the 40 man roster. When it was announced that it was Heathcott called up to replace the injured Ellsbury I think it shocked more than a few, including myself and probably Slade too, leaving Austin to presumably wonder when his time will be in the Bronx.

Player A:
Player B:

We’re going to do something a little different today because the team is off and we have a little extra time on our hands to do so. Player A vs. Player B comparisons. Player A is Austin, this is his weekly check in after all, and Player B is Heathcott. Does one deserve the call up more so then the other? You be the judge.
