Yankees Mailbag: Kyle Higashioka, prospect hugging, and no-hitters

Good morning everyone, it’s time to head back into the mailbag for more of your Yankees questions. Remember to send in your questions for our weekly call by e-mail to pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com.

Ben K. asks: Do you think that Kyle Higashioka is the new Yankees’ everyday catcher?

So Higashioka has earned a bit more playing time than anticipated from Opening Day, effectively splitting the starts with Gary Sánchez currently. This is more than fair given their respective performances so far, with Higashioka outplaying expectations and Sánchez slumping after a decent start to the year.
