Analysis: The 25-year-old earned the promotion by hitting .300 with four homers and 21 RBIs in 27 games in Triple A. Austin likely will eventually be used in a platoon with the left-handed hitting Greg Bird, as he posted a 1.097 OPS in 23 at-bats against lefties during a brief stint with the Yankees last season.
