Yankees offensive woes continue as they drop second straight game 4-0

The day did not start off well for Sonny Gray, as a leadoff single from Kevin Kiermaier started his outing. Then, DH Jake Bowers laced a double down the left field line, scoring the Rays center fielder. In the bottom of the 2nd, CJ Cron hit another double, breaking an 0-16 slump. Then, Daniel Robertson doubled him home. After a Mallex Smith sacrifice bunt moved Robertson to third, Willy Adames hit a grounder through the left side for another base hit to make it 3-0. Meanwhile, the Yankees wasted a pair of leadoff doubles off of Rays starter Wilmer Font in their first two innings at the plate. Giancarlo Stanton laced one down the right-field line, but was stranded, and Austin Romine smoked a ball off the wall in center before also being left on base.

Asche has experience playing third base, outfield, and has two career appearances at first base. He is a career .234/.293/.376 hitter in 1238 at-bats over a course of five seasons with the Phillies and White Sox.

This move is most likely a depth move, due to the massive injury bug that has affected the Yankees so far, this season. Expect the 27-year-old to report to Scranton or possibly replace Miguel Andújar on the major league roster, if the Yankees still want him to get every day at-bats in Triple-A.
