With the New York Yankees coming off a brutal loss against Boston, here’s the news and notes you need to know.

In Monday, August 21, 2017’s edition of New York Yankees Bronx Bomber Buzz, we take a look at a roster move involving Bryan Mitchell as well as an update regarding Greg Bird‘s current rehab assignment.

First off, the Yankees have optioned right-hander Bryan Mitchell to Triple-A following Sunday’s loss in anticipation of Masahiro Tanaka returning from the disabled list on Tuesday.

The club should be excited to regain Tanaka into the rotation, considering he was beginning to get back in a groove before the injury.

Mitchell was the one to go down after his awful performance on Thursday night at Citi Field, where he surrendered four runs without even recording a single out.

Next up, first baseman Greg Bird seems to be progressing well with his rehab assignment with Triple-A following his ankle surgery.



The left-hander slugged two massive home runs on Saturday night to add-on to his impressive assignment.

Hopefully, Bird can rejoin the big league team this week and inject some offense into a lineup which is desperately missing a key left-handed bat.
