Player Notes
Yankees prospect Tyler Austin went 4-for-4 with a double for Double-A Trenton on Saturday.

Advice: Austin has been one of the hottest hitters in the minor leagues over the past few weeks, hitting .438/.462/.646 over his last 13 games. He has been playing right field with a little bit of first base sprinkled in over the past few weeks. Austin had a breakout 2012, but struggled in 2013 and the first half of 2014, and has seen a precipitous drop in his prospect status. He has the potential to be a .280 hitter with 20 home runs and 20-plus stolen bases, but he will need to show that his recent hot hitting is for real in order to have a chance at a promotion.
