DotF: Frazier’s big game leads Scranton to a win

Game 56: Stop the Skid
Sabathia's brilliant outing leads the Yankees to 8-0 win over the Red Sox

A few quick injury related notes:

  • OF Blake Rutherford has been placed on the Low-A Charleston disabled list with a foot contusion, reports Chris Tripodi. He left Sunday’s game after drawing a walk in his only at-bat. Hopefully it’s not too bad and Rutherford will be back after the 7-day DL stint is up. Maybe he fouled a pitch off his foot or something.
  • RHP Albert Abreu has been placed on the High-A Tampa disabled list, the team announced. He left last night’s start after two innings and 22 pitches. No idea what’s wrong with him, but Josh Norris heard Abreu was throwing 91-96 mph last night with good secondary stuff, so that’s encouraging. I guess.
  • C Kyle Higashioka has been activated off the Triple-A Scranton disabled list, the team announced. He last played May 14th. I could have sworn I remember seeing something about Higashioka taking a foul tip to the hand, but I can’t find it now. Either way, he’s back. Always nice to have catching depth intact.
  • LHP Stephen Tarpley has been activated off the High-A Tampa disabled list, the team announced. I have no idea what was wrong with him, but he’s been out all season. Tarpley came over from the Pirates in the Ivan Nova trade last year.
