Yankees #9 Alexander Vizcaino, like Gomez, is throwing and ramping back up after an arm injury.
Yankees #14 Josh Smith has a minor hand injury and won’t be too long.
Yankees #16 TJ Sikkema currently has a lat injury.
If Odor is hurt, it's an opportunity to give Josh Smith a look. @sksmith91 SCOUTING REPORT: Smith has some of the best bat-to-ball skills in the Yankees system, and he controls the strike zone well while making hard contact to all fields. #PoorMansJeter @Yankees @TalkinYanks
Josh Smith (‘19-2nd NYY) will be starting his 2021 at the Yankees Tampa complex rehabbing a hand injury sustained in Spring Training! He’ll be placed with a team for the season once he’s good to go and has progressed to game speed.
Good luck in your rehab, Josh!!
In a group Zoom with Yankees media, Kevin Reese tells me that Yoendrys Gomez, Alexander Vizcaino and Josh Smith are all dealing with injuries and that's why they aren't on full season rosters right now.
Yeah they are also missing. Neither played above short-season in 2019. I can see why they may wait with Ryder Green but Josh Smith is an interesting omission, given that he crushed it in Staten Island and is already 23. #Yankees #SquadUp https://t.co/DzzIgte3Dy
Yankees appears to be extremely conservative with most assignments (as have many teams given no MiLB season in 2020). No assignments yet for Yoendrys Gomez, Alexander Vizcaino, Kevin Alcantara, Alexander Vargas, Josh Smith, TJ Sikkema & Everson Pereira
This 2 week window B4 Voit returns wreaks of opportunity. Call up Josh Smith to play SS. Slide Gleyber over to 2B so he can relax a bit. Inject a lefty contact hitter into this lineup of all or nothing swingers. @yankees_tribune @TalkinYanks @sksmith91 @Buster_ESPN @schlesinj
In the offseason I called for @Yankees to sign Iglesias or Villar to to backup SS & insurance for Gleyber. We have a ready now option in Josh Smith @sksmith91 A sure fielder, keen batter's eye, & contact hitter with some speed. Move Gleyber to 2B where he's a + defender.
Erold Andrus, John Urick and Bryce Kartler homered for Battle Creek, but the Yankees lost 9-4 at West Michigan.
Andrus and Urick had 3 hits each for the Yankees, who were outhit 13-11.
Battle Creek starter Josh Smith was rocked for 9 ER in 3.1 innings.
Yankees are missing the boat on Josh Smith. He's an MLB ready SS, home grown, and does everything well. Hits to contact, works counts, & bats L. How could he not be on the alternate site roster. @yankees_tribune @TalkinYanks @HoodieFrazier @Yankeelibrarian @pgammo @JonHeyman
Yankees need to get some lefties in their lineup, well they have 5 lefty MiLB bats, which 4 of them can play INF/OF positions...big year for all of them
Florial- all 3 OF positions
Josh Smith- SS/3b/2b/reps in OF
Sanford- All 3 OF/1b
P Cole Henry has been named the Nationals #3 prospect, INF Josh Smith the #14 prospect in the Yankees system, and OF Greg Deichmann has been named the #9 minor leaguer in the A’s organization! https://t.co/6dWYeTGpWR
