- Turns out LHP Justus Sheffield (shoulder) won’t start Saturday, according to DJ Eberle. He didn’t suffer a setback though. The plan all along was to skip a start rather than push it back a few days. Sheffield will pitch some time early next week.
- SS Thairo Estrada (wrist) is doing better and is day-to-day at this point, reports Eberle. Been a tough year for Thairo so far. He’s had groin and wrist problems, plus he got shot during a botched robbery in January.
Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (3-1 win over Lehigh Valley)
- SS Tyler Wade: 1-4, 1 K, 1 E (throwing) — seems like he gets one hit a day, no more, no less
- 1B Adam Lind: 0-4 — 9-for-35 (.257) with three doubles and a homer with Scranton
- DH Mike Ford: 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K — second homer in the last three games
- RF Ryan McBroom: 2-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI — got picked off first … only his third homer in 34 games this season
- RHP Chance Adams: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 10 K, 3/4 GB/FB — 64 of 102 pitches were strikes (63%) … easily his best start of the season … good to see him go out and dominate, hopefully he builds on this going forward
- RHP Cody Carroll: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 0/1 GB/FB — 12 of 22 pitches were strikes (55%) … first time pitching back-to-back days this season, which is surely something the Yankees wanted to see him do at least once before a potential call-up
