Bryan Mitchell has been sent down to Triple-A Scranton.
Mitchell was brought up just before the break but never made an appearance. He'll head back down now and build up some experience at the Triple-A level where he has only thrown eight innings in his career. Should the Yankees need bullpen depth down the road, and you know they will, Mitchell will likely be summoned so long as he is performing well. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
