Joseph out for ELDS, Segedin promoted
TRENTON -- Corban Joseph is a little banged up, and will miss the division series . Because of that, Rob Segedin, a third-round pick from this year’s draft, has been activated and will assume a role on the bench.
Most likely, Matt Cusick and Justin Snyder will man second and third in starting roles.
Segedin played 22 games this season between the Gulf Coast League and the Staten Island Yankees.
He hit .244 with two home runs and 10 RBIs.
Joseph, who was promoted in August, had scuffled a bit during his time in Trenton, hitting just .216 in 31 games.
He missed the two of the last three games with trouble in his wrist, and visited the doctor yesterday. The word wasn’t what the Yankees wanted to hear, so Segedin has been promoted.
