Harrison Bader to Rehab in Somerset Tonight after Patriots Crush Curve
Yankees outfielder Harrison Bader is heading back to Somerset for a rehab assignment on Wednesday night for the Yankees Double-A affiliate, Somerset Patriots.
Bader was placed on the Injury List back on May 30 following a hamstring strain. It was a slight setback for Bader who was contributing well at the Major League level; he was hitting .267 with nine home runs and 19 RBI.
When Bader takes the field for the Patriots Wednesday, it will be his second rehab stint in Somerset this season. He rehabbed with the Patriots from April 21 to the 23 after nursing a left oblique strain.
Meanwhile, last night …
After falling into a 3-0 hole, the Somerset Patriots dusted themselves off, and rallied off eight runs as they stunned the Altoona Curve 8-4 in the opener of a six-game series, Tuesday at TD Bank Ballpark.
Aaron Palensky led the way with a pair of hits hits, three runs scored and an RBI, while T.J. Rumfield crushed his 11th homer of the year in the Patriots victory.
