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.

Brandon Drury reinstated and optioned to Triple-A

After spending a month on the DL with a lingering headache problem, Brandon Drury has been activated and optioned down to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre. Acquired from the Diamondbacks this offseason, Drury's injury forced him out of a spot early in the season.

The former Diamondback utility infielder was five-for-23 (.217) in eight games the first few weeks of the seasons with one homer and four RBIs. His demotion may be a bit surprising to some, but after Neil Walker has picked up his play recently there’s not much of a spot for Drury. To go along with Walker, the Yanks have Ronald Torreyes, Gleyber Torres, and Miguel Andujar in the infield, who have all excelled. The next causality that will likely be optioned down to Triple-A is Tyler Austin, once Greg Bird returns to action.

Drury’s spot on the big league roster became taken once Torres and Andujar were called up, but if there’s any injury in the meantime, expect Drury to be called up immediately. His flexibility could still be valuable to the Yanks roster.
