Yankees and O’Connor wrap up the homestand with some afternoon baseball

A NEW FACE ON THE PITCHING STAFF…
Danny Farquhar joins the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre roster as a recent call up from Double-A Trenton. Farqhar was picked up off of waivers after being designated for assignment by the Oakland Athletics on June 26th. He was outrighted by the Yankees on July 1st and joined the Thunder where he appeared in six games with a 1-0 record and a 0.00 ERA with four saves. Originally a 10th round selection of the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2008 First Year Player Draft, Farquhar made his MLB debut with the Blue Jays appearing in two games in 2011. He began the season in Double-A New Hampshire (0-1-1, 2.97) with Toronto and was with Triple-A Sacramento (1-2-0, 10.13) in the Oakland system when picked up by New York

BACK FROM THE BRONX…
D.J. Mitchell returns to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre roster after a stint with the parent club in New York. In his most recent stay with the New York Yankees, Mitchell appeared in two games on 7/7 and 7/15. On July 7th Mitchell tossed one inning of relief against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. He allowed just one hit and struck out one in the appearance. His most recent appearance with New York came on July 15th against the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium. Mitchell surrendered one run/earned run in one inning on the bump. In four appearances so far this season for New York Mitchell has a record of 0-0 with an ERA of 3.86 over 4.2 innings. The right-hander allowed two hits, one of which was a home run, while walking two. Mitchell has not appeared in a game for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since June 26th where he earned the no decision against the Gwinnett Braves in a home game at Frontier Field in Rochester, New York.
