Update: Chris Stewart leaves game with dehydration

Yankees outright David Huff to Triple-A
Mesa & Almonte homer, Wang dominates in win

9:47pm: Stewart left the game with dehydration, the team announced. I’m guessing he’ll be fine for tomorrow.

8:59pm: Chris Stewart left tonight’s game between the fourth and fifth innings for an unknown reason. He hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fourth and there didn’t appear to be anything wrong, but he has been battling that nagging groin issue in recent weeks. Stay tuned for any updates.

    For everyone’s reference, this is what the Yankees have in AAA:

    Jeff Farnham: 7-32, .192 in AA last year
    Bobby Wilson: .183, 2 HR, .592 OPS, 104AB

    Oh joy.

      Yeah, but how well do they know the pitchers?!?

      • JohnnyC

        Stewart knows the pitchers well enough to call the absolutely best pitch for an 0-2 count. It’s a talent not many have.

    • Tom

      Without framing statistics I have no clue how to evaluate them

      Who cares if they can hit… can they frame that critical 3-0 pitch for a strike and save 0.03 theoretical runs?!?!?

  • And in merrie olde England

    Meh, they’re just bored down there, get ’em in the show and they’ll come around.

    I guess the decision to willingly downgrade at Catcher and Right Field last off-season was a bad idea… who knew!?!

      Don’t worry, the career backup catcher won’t break down when you play him everyday. He’s well rested!

        And this is why I find RAB much more enjoyable to read.

  • Myers

    Maybe Overbay can catch!

  • JMK

    Word is he left due to dehydration.

    Stewart even sucks at drinking water.

    Dehydration? That’s just a euphemism for he’s dizzy or losing his lunch.

      Dizzy Stewart? Perfect nickname.
