The Bomber Buzz highlights the latest news surrounding the New York Yankees. Today highlights reported roster moves, milestones and more. 

The New York Yankees will call up Tyler Austin to the big league club on Tuesday, manager Joe Girardi said. This will be Austin’s third stint with the Yankees in 2017.

Austin homered twice during the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders’ loss to the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. Austin put together a .275/.342/.544 slash line with 10 home runs and 32 runs batted in during his 42 games with the Railriders this season.

Down on the Farm:

The Staten Island Yankees clinched a spot in the New York-Penn League playoffs with their win on Monday. Down nine to two entering the top of the eighth, they rallied off eight runs in the last two innings to secure a victory and a playoff berth.

The Staten Island Yankees join the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders, Trenton Thunder, Tampa Yankees and Charleston RiverDogs as representatives for the New York Yankees affiliates in the postseason.

Walking on Sunshine: 

Aaron Judge walked four times during Monday’s 7-4 win over Baltimore, his fifth such game of three or more walks in 2017. He is tied with Shin-Soo Choo for the most in the American League and trails Joey Votto for most in baseball. His first of the four was his 100th of the season, putting him in exclusive company.


Judge has seen over 2,500 pitches in 2017, 56.8 percent of those being strikes. Of qualified hitters, Judge ranks second in the lowest percentage of strikes seen, behind only Votto, who’s at 55.5 percent. The Major League average for a hitter is 63.6 percent
