All-Star Tyler Austin Placed on DL; OF Yeral Sanchez Joins Thunder

The Trenton Thunder, Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, announced Tuesday that All-Star rightfielder Tyler Austin has been placed on the team's disabled list with a right wrist injury (retroactive to 7/13).  Cuban outfielder Yeral Sanchez has been promoted to the team from Class A-Advanced Tampa.

Austin is batting .254 in 81 games for the Thunder this season with six home runs and 39 RBI.  He entered the season ranked by Baseball America as the 4th-best prospect in the Yankees farm system.  The 21-year-old has not played since Friday night (July 12th) at New Britain. 

Sanchez, who will turn 28 on Thursday, was signed by the Yankees last July after defecting from his native Cuba.  In his first professional season Sanchez has played in 31 games with Tampa and batted .226 with two home runs and 16 RBI.

  1. Specifically, when the width of the shuttle is set and the values in the shuttle are relatively long, they simply get cut off. I am hoping there is a way to show a horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of each list in an APEX shuttle.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
