The Yankees have designated 1B Chris Carter for assignment and recalled INF Tyler Austin from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
The move was completed following the team's 2-1 win over the Rangers on Friday, during which Carter went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. He had gone hitless in five of his last six games.
Meanwhile, Austin, who has split time between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, has hit .316 this season in 32 minor league games. He appeared in 31 games for the Yankees last season, hitting .241 with five home runs and 12 RBI.
In 57 games for the Yankees this season, Carter has hit .204 with eight home runs and 23 RBI.
