The Yankees have called up outfielder Thomas Neal from Triple-A Scranton prior to tonight’s game with the Angels. Infielder David Adams has been sent down to make room on the roster.
Adams started off on the right foot with the Yankees but has since cooled off, picking up just two hits in his last 25 at-bats. Neal, 25, put up a batting line of .339/.426/.446 with two homers and 24 RBI with Scranton over 47 games this year. He made his Major League debut last season with the Indians, playing in nine games and hitting .217 with two RBI. He will mostly see action at DH against lefties.
The Yankees play the Angels tonight from Anaheim and will face lefty C.J. Wilson. There is no word yet on if Neal is in the starting lineup.
Per a source, the Yankees will recall OF Thomas Neal today and option David Adams to Triple-A.
