Yankees take 12 players off spring roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) The Yankees removed 12 players from their spring roster Tuesday. Outfielder Ramon Flores was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, while Francisco Arcia, Tyler Austin, Bruce Billings, Robert Coello, Brian Gordon, Corban Joseph, Mark Montgomery, Pete O'Brien, Jose Pirela, Mason Williams and Chase Whitley were reassigned to minor-league camp.

Tyler Austin hoping to play this week


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) Yankees outfielder Tyler Austin is hoping to play in a game this week, according to Lohud Yankees Blog.

Austin is planning to take batting practice on the field Monday. He's been dealing with a wrist injury during camp, but is starting to feel better. If he can get through batting practice, he should try and play in a game later in the week. 


Yankees moving Tyler Austin to infield?


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2013) The Yankees will play outfielder Tyler Austin at first base and third base in the Arizona Fall League, The Journal News reports.

Austin was drafted and has played much of his professional career as an outfielder. After a great 2012, Austin scuffled in his first full season at Double-A in 2013, where he hit .257/.344/.373 in 83 games. With Alex Rodriguez' future in doubt, though, the Yankees need options at third base, so if Austin shows he can hack it there, it wouldn't be surprising to see him open the season as a third baseman at Double-A or Triple-A.


Tyler Austin having down year in 2013


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2013) Yankees outfield prospect Tyler Austin has been trying to hit his way out of a slump for Double-A Trenton. Austin is mired in a 6-for-37 slump (.162) in his last 10 games, dropping his average to .254.

It hasn't been a banner year for one of the Yankees' top prospects. Austin, who entered the year considered the Yankees' third-best prospect by MLB.com, is slugging .367 in 81 games. He has one triple, six home runs, 15 doubles and 39 RBI in 81 games. He also has just four stolen bases after totaling a career-best 23 in 110 games in 2012.


Tyler Austin hits DL with wrist injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2013) Yankees outfield prospect Tyler Austin has been placed on the disabled list with a wrist injury.

Austin has struggled a bit in Double-A Trenton. He's hitting .254/.344/.367 in 311 at-bats. Austin hasn't played since July 12 due to the injury. There's no indication of how long the injury will keep him on the bench. 


Tyler Austin 'settling in at the plate'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2013) Yankees outfield prospect Tyler Austin had a big day for Double-A Trenton Sunday. Austin, who is considered the Yankees' third-best prospect by MLB.com, went 3 for 6 with one double, five RBI and one stolen base.

Austin is batting .256 (11 for 43) with one home run, four doubles and nine RBI in 10 games.

"It felt really good to break out today," Austin said, per MLB.com. "I'm still settling in at the plate, but it's gratifying to see the work pay off."


Austin not in mix for left field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2013) Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters Monday the team is “not looking for a long-term solution” while Curtis Granderson misses the start of the season due to a fractured forearm. Girardi seemed to be leaning toward non-roster invitees Matt Diaz and Juan Rivera to potentially platoon in left field while Granderson recovers. Girardi added Melky Mesa is the best defensive option to replace Granderson and Zolio Almonte could also figure into the team's plans. Mesa and Almonte are already on the 40-man roster. Girardi made it clear, however, prospects Slade Heathcott and Tyler Austin will not be in the mix.

Austin emerges from anonymity


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2013) Yankees outfield prospect Tyler Austin will be in major-league camp this spring. "Very excited about it -- it's something I've dreamed of my entire life," Austin told MLB.com. "Especially to be with the Yankees and get this opportunity and go out and play with those guys -- it's going to be an unbelievable experience that I'll never forget." Austin is not on the Yankees' 40-man roster and is expected to open the season at Double-A Trenton, where he will continue to develop as a prospect. "Every part of my game from defense to base-running to the plate -- I need to improve on every bit of it before I'm ready to go to New York," he said. "Hopefully I work hard each and every day."
