The Trenton Thunder, Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, announced Saturday that outfielder Tyler Austin has been activated from the team's disabled list. He is expected to see his first action with the squad since July 12th in Saturday night's doubleheader at Portland.
Austin, who turns 22 next week, has been on the Disabled List since July 13th with a right wrist injury. He missed the team's last 47 games. In 81 games played with Trenton this season, Austin has batted .254 with six home runs and 39 RBI.
Austin played in two rehab games with the GCL Yankees2 and batted 4-for-6 with a walk and a run scored. He was selected to the 2013 Eastern Division Mid-Season All-Star team in July.
