It’s bad enough that when the Red Sox stole nine bases in a game, former Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka led the league in throwing out would-be thieves.

Now, as the Yankees’ season implodes with 17 losses in the last 23 games, guess who is on a power rampage. Right, Higgy.

Higashioka launched his 11th home run for the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night, setting a career best. He hit ten home runs in each of the previous three seasons with the Yankees.

But Higashioka isn’t just hitting bombs; he’s blasted 10 home runs in his last 69 at-bats.

Higashioka, who was included in the deal for slugger Juan Soto, went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and a walk in Tuesday’s 8-3 loss to the Mariners. Higashioka’s two-run homer in the eighth inning trimmed the margin to 7-3, his sole hit of the game.

Higashioka, who plays only part-time, has a.342/.375/.842 batting line with six home runs, 17 RBI, and eight runs scored in 40 plate appearances over the last 11 games. He will continue to share time with Luis Campusano.
