Weekly Check In: Tyler Austin

Tyler Austin may have found his entrance into the major leagues as Garrett Jones continues to struggle on both the offensive and defensive side of the baseball. Jones is primarily on the team because of his ability to play right field and backup the first base position, although his defense was never heralded as great at either position. Austin was a third baseman when the Yankees drafted him and played some first base in the minor leagues before being moved permanently to the outfield to allow him a clearer path to the major leagues and to keep him healthy. Austin has been healthy and has been potent with the bat and seems to be knocking on the door to the Bronx as we speak.

Let’s take a look at the stats that should have Jones shaking in his boots right now:
