Poor pitching spoils a big offensive night as the Yankees drop rubber-match in Texas

A rough night for Yankees pitching spoiled another offensive outburst, as the Rangers picked up a 12-10 win on Wednesday night in Arlington. Wednesday also marks the first time that the Yankees have lost a series since they lost two out of three against the Red Sox at Fenway in early April. Despite the loss, the offense continues to roll. The Yankees totaled 14 hits and four home runs in the losing effort.

Yankees re-sign Adam Lind to minors deal

With the rash of injuries occurring in the Yankees’ system and the up and coming suspension of Tyler Austin on the horizon, the Yankees made a move this afternoon to improve their depth by re-signing veteran 1B/OF Adam Lind to a minor league deal.

Lind was signed to a minors deal with an invite to spring training in March, but was released 12 days later, when his chances of making the opening day roster became slim. He hit 3-for-15 with no XBH’s in limited action in Yankees’ camp before his release and was unable to latch on permanently with another club.

Lind will provide depth at first base and in the outfield for the Bombers. According to Chris Cotillo of the MLB Daily Dish, Lind will be sent to extended spring training. The 34-year-old Lind was very vocal this offseason about how unusual it was for a player like him who hit .303 in 2017 to not receive any sort of interest on the market.
