TTM Success: Kyle Higashioka

Ok, ok. Spring TTM successes are slowly rolling in. My second from 2017 ST is from Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka. He's basically the Yankees #3 catcher at this point, a 26-year-old who has yet to make his Big League debut, but smacked 21 HRs between AA and AAA in 2016. That earned him a spot on the 40 man roster, as it should.

Having depth at backup catcher is a nice luxury to have. He'll probably just end up with the Pirate at some point (or Austin Romine will), but still, it wouldn't surprise me to see him make his debut some time this season.

Higashioka was nice enough to sign three cards for me. The green sparkly Bowman is especially cool.
