Yankees' Slade Heathcott knocks first career home run
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Yankees center fielder Slade Heathcott went 2 for 5 with his first career homer in his team's 14-1 win over the Royals on Monday.
After the Yankees racked up 11 runs on four homers before the fourth out of the game could be recorded, the team was able to cruise to a win. Heathcott smacked his two-run homer in the seventh inning to increase his team's lead to 13 runs.
"Is this real?" Heathcott said to NJ.com. "I come back in the dugout, and I see a lot of the veteran guys, [Brian] McCann, CC [Sabathia], guys like that, congratulating me. It's awesome."
He's 5 for 12 in his first three starts in the majors.
"I've known Slade for a while, since he got drafted, and he's been through his share of injuries," left fielder Brett Gardner said. "I'm very, very happy for him."
Yankees OF Slade Heathcott makes first career start Friday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Yankees rookie outfielder Slade Heathcott earned his first career start Friday against the Rangers. He made his MLB debut as a defensive replacement in Wednesday's game at Washington.
Heathcott is a former top-100 prospect. He was batting .285 with one home run and 17 RBI in 37 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to his promotion. He had a .270/.345/.398/.743 slash line over seven seasons in the minors.
Yankees recall OF Slade Heathcott from Triple-A
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) The Yankees have called up outfielder Slade Heathcott from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, the team announced. Heathcott will take the roster spot from Jacoby Ellsbury, who went on the disabled list with a knee injury.
"I’ll use (Heathcott) for late innings for defense, and I could use him as a pinch runner," mnager Joe Girardi said, per the Journal News. "But he’s going to get some starts. I’m going to put him in the lineup and see how he does."
Heathcott was originally drafted by the Yankees in the first round of the 2009 draft. He's been toiling around in the minor leagues since then, never getting a taste of the Major Leagues. He's never really hit all that well in the Yankees' system, as he has a career .270 minor league batting average with 21 home runs.
This year he is batting .285 with four doubles, a triple and a home run in 151 at-bats at Triple-A. He's played mostly center field during his career and will likely be a depth piece for manager Joe Girardi in Ellbury's absence.
