Mariano Rivera and Mike Mussina headline 2019 Hall of Fame Class

Earlier today, Major League Baseball announced the results of this year’s Hall of Fame voting, and two former Yankees received the call to Cooperstown: Mike Mussina and Mariano Rivera. These two pitching greats, along with Edgar Martinez and the late Roy Halladay, will officially be enshrined later this year on Sunday, July 21.

Yankees option Clint Frazier to Triple-A, recall Kyle Higashioka and Giovanny Gallegos

Today, the Yankees announced that they have optioned outfielder Clint Frazier back to Triple-A and recalled catcher Kyle Higashioka from Triple-A, as well as reliever Giovanny Gallegos before their series opening game tonight in Philadelphia. With Brett Gardner returning from injury, Clint Frazier is the odd man out in the Yankees outfield and will see more time with Scranton Wilkes-Barre for now.

 As for Kyle Higashioka, he will be called up to provide the Yankees with depth behind the plate after the recent injury to Gary Sanchez during the Yankees’ series against the Rays. Giovanny Gallegos will provide depth in the bullpen for the Yankees, as one of the usual bullpen arms, Luis Cessa, will be getting the start on Wednesday against the Phillies. By giving Cessa this start, the Yankees have pushed back CC Sabathia’s next start to Friday where he will face off against the Red Sox.
