After yesterday’s walk-off win against the Texas Rangers, Chris Carter was DFA’d and Tyler Austin was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The combination of Tyler Austin doing well in Triple-A and Chris Carter doing the opposite of well on the Yankees most likely made this an easy decision. New York Daily News | Peter Botte: There were a lot of things to feel great about after last night’s victory. Masahiro Tanaka pitching like the Masahiro Tanaka we know and love is high on the feel great-o-meter. Tanaka
