Two quick notes to pass along:
- C Kyle Higashioka is on the disabled list with a shoulder problem, not a recurrence of his recent back injury, according to Conor Foley. He said his shoulder feels weak. No idea how long he’ll be sidelined, but with September call-ups right around the corner, you can bet Higashioka hopes to be back soon.
- SS Tyler Wade, who has nine plate appearances in the last 19 days, lost his rookie eligibility through service time today. He dropped off MLB.com’s top 30 Yankees prospects list and RHP Trevor Stephan has jumped on.
