Weekly Check In: Tyler Austin

The New York Yankees made the tough decision to designate Tyler Austin for assignment on September 1st after a wrist injury may have derailed his career. The Yankees attempted to trade Austin before placing him on waivers, which would explain the delay in the assignment process, and were unable to work out a deal. Instead New York passed Austin through waivers and have assigned him to Double-A with the Trenton Thunder. The move to the Thunder was purely procedural at this point, Trenton is not in the playoffs while the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders are, but it is also indicative of how far the mighty have fallen in 2015.

Austin will presumably stick with the team in 2016 now that he is off the 40 man roster and stashed away inside the organization but just in case he's not I wanted to take a look at his 2015 season with the RailRiders and the Thunder.

Welcome back Tyler!
