Eric Young JR has been optioned to AAA Scranton Wilkes-Barre and looks like he could serve as a possible September call up for his speed. He has stolen 144 of 179 bases and is renowned as one of the best base runners in baseball. He is a life time .247 hitter, but figures to be the Yankees go to go in pinch running situations.
With the deadline for players being playoff eligible winds down this evening. I would not be surprised to see the Yankees make some more moves by the day’s end.
