The Yankees will call up OF Tyler Austin to replace Alex Rodriguez on the roster when Rodriguez is officially released after Friday's game, reports Fox's Ken Rosenthal.
Austin, 24, has split time this season between Double-A and Triple-A, playing 57 games with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
The outfielder has .323 with a .415 OBP and .637 SLG to go along with 13 home runs in Triple-A this season.
Austin was ranked the No. 77 prospect by Baseball America after the 2012 season before dealing with multiple injuries.
Friday night will be the last game of Rodriguez's Yankee career after 13 seasons with the team.
