Following a blown save in the New York Yankees 9-6 loss to the Rangers Monday night, Kauai high graduate Kirby Yates was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Friday.

The 29-year-old Yates was fantastic to begin 2016, posting a 2.25 earned run average through the month of May.

June was doom and gloom for the Yankees reliever. Yates was tagged with 13 runs in the month, ballooning his ERA to season-high 5.72.
