Weekly Prospects Check In: Tyler Austin


Christopher Tyler Austin may not be representing the New York Yankees at the Futures Game tomorrow afternoon inside Petco Park but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a potential future with the organization. Ever since receiving his call up to Triple-A to play first base beside Nick Swisher the Yankees right-hander has been absolutely on a tear at the plate. Tyler Austin is on fire. Swisher is out of the picture now as he takes the remainder of the summer off to spend time with his family and his newly born daughter, congrats to Nick, JoAnna and family by the way, leaving one less obstacle in the way for Austin to reach the Bronx.


Here is what Austin has been doing this week and this season with the RailRiders:

  1. Nice to see this prospect finally getting back on track. I always believed he was never able to get totally comfortable at a position.

    1. Agree Donnie!

      Took a long time to get there but the ends justify the means I guess. Glad he did. Now the Yankees just have to give him a shot.

    2. That holds true for a few of the guys, right Daniel!
      Look at it another way; Tex, Hicks, Headley, A-rod and McCann are not doing so well.
      Replace Tex with Refsy or Tyler Austin!
      " Hicks with any number of guys!
      " Headley with Castro/Miguel Andujar
      " A-Rod with Beltran
      " McCann with Romine/Sanchez
      Tex, A-Rod on bench, Hicks DFA, Headley trade. Hell, what is it going to hurt...we ain't going any where are we?
