Josh Breaux gets the call up from Somerset to Scranton after 53 games with the Patriots (plus 26 last year). Has belted 13 homers this season.

#Yankees catching prospect Josh Breaux is headed to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Breaux (NY's No. 25 prospect per MLB Pipeline) was hitting .204 with 13 HR and 29 RBI in 53 G with Double-A Somerset. https://t.co/uEjkgQsOJ1
Josh Breaux at Double-A this year: .204/.273/.436, 91 wRC+ and 27.7 K%, 8.2 BB% in 53 games.
Had a .688 OPS in April (15 games), a .933 OPS in May (13 games), then a .588 OPS in June (24 games),
The 24-year-old was the Yankees' second-round pick in 2018.
You can split time at C/DH with Austin Wells and Anthony Seigler when Wells gets back to the @HVRenegades. Eventually, that timeshare will occur with Josh Breaux up in Somerset (assuming Breaux himself doesn’t go up to Scranton). In other words, it all works out. #Yankees #RepBX
Anthony Volpe led off the sixth with a walk, Elijah Dunham reached on an error, and Josh Breaux made them pay with a long three run homer.
It’s now 5-2 Somerset. With a win, the Patriots clinch a playoff spot as the winner of the first half in the Eastern League Northeast.
@BenNYY_25 Cubs laugh at that offer man.
Yankees Acquire: Ian Happ (LF) and David Robertson (RP/Right handed)
Cubs Acquire: Trey Sweeney (SS), Brock Selvidge (SP/Left handed), and Josh Breaux (C)
Fair offer to me I would say
I’m very excited for Josh Breaux to get a call up eventually (the Yankees don’t have much catching at AAA and it would open up the AA catching spot for Austin Wells and the High-A catching spot for Anthony Seigler)
He has 33 HRs since 2021 in 122 games for a HR/AB rate of 14.5.
Yankees Rule 5 Players:
Pitchers: Ken Waldichuk, Hayden Wesneski, Randy Vasquez, Jhony Brito, Matt Sauer,T.J. Sikkema
Hitters: Andres Chaparro, Anthony Garcia, Antonio Gomez, Marcos Cabrera, Alexander Vargas, Brandon Lockridge, Josh Breaux, Anthony Seigler.
2. Pitchers Ken Waldichuk, Hayden Wesneski, Randy Vasquez, Jhony Brito, Matt Sauer, and T.J. Sikkema are eligible.Hitters include Andres Chaparro, Anthony Garcia, Antonio Gomez, Marcos Cabrera, Alexander Vargas, Brandon Lockridge, Josh Breaux, and Anthony Seigler.#Yankees #RepBX
Josh Breaux just misses another Breaux Bomb, but shall settle for an RBI double off the wall in left.
8-1, SoMERSet, B6.
Every Patriots player in the lineup has at least one hit, that's now 12 as a team so far.
@HalcheckbookRBW @starscream1978 @SOMPatriots @Yankees Doesn't matter. They would have to do something with Josh Breaux. Keep in mind that when one is moved it corresponds with someone else being moved.
Only issue is playing time. Yankees still want to get regular at-bats for Josh Breaux, who just came off Somerset's IL. I'd imagine they'll keep the current arrangement for the foreseeable future. https://t.co/MmNZNIfyP3
Pina and Higashioka could be used as a platoon, or Donny Sands and Josh Breaux could compete for a backup job.
Sanchez is a serious non-tender candidate, as the Yankees are likely unwilling to give up over $8 million for him.
4. Catcher: Ben Rortvedt’s injury is a killer. Rob Brantly recently came off his own IL stint and the intriguing Rodolfo Duran has played in only two games himself. Josh Breaux is also currently on the IL. Not sure if they see him as true catching depth. #Yankees #RepBX
The @Yankees have made the following transactions ahead of tonight's game:
🔹Carlos Espinal – Transferred Somerset to Scranton
🔹Emmanuel Ramirez – Reinstated from 7-Day IL
🔹Josh Breaux – Placed on Somerset 7-Day IL
🔹Elijah Dunham – Reinstated from Somerset 7-Day IL https://t.co/RZ0RGwG345
Hey #yankees fans - Austin Wells is RAKING in high A & seems ready to move up to AA soon. But, what to do? Josh Breaux is at AA & is struggling. If you move Wells up, you want him playing daily, and still a lot at C. Do you split Wells between C/1B (I would) & DH? Thoughts?
