Weekly AFL Check In: Tyler Austin

Tyler Austin’s opportunities and time with the New York Yankees may be drying up unfortunately so no one is watching all the activity that Brian Cashman is creating more than Austin. It seems, at least today, that Greg Bird is slated to start the season back in Triple-A with the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders. It seems like New York wants Austin to learn the first base position to give Mark Teixeira, and eventually Bird in 2017, a right-handed option and compliment in the minor leagues. With Bird in Scranton that leaves one less position and one less roster spot for Austin, who was removed from the 40 man roster after being designated for assignment, to take.

Austin started off strong in the AFL and has done well, but probably not well enough to really open up some eyes. I’m rooting for Tyler, I really am, and I’m a huge fan. Hopefully he can go on a tear, improve these stats and begin to open some eyes up again in New York.
