Trey Amburgey waited a long time for a call to the Yankees.

Wednesday night finally came, but the outfielder will have to wait at least another day to make his MLB debut.

The Yankees selected Amburgey’s contract ahead of Thursday’s opening game against the Red Sox, but the game was postponed due to multiple positive COVID-19 cases at the Yankees clubhouse.

Before the Yankees announced they had canceled battle practice to undergo further testing β€” the game was postponed a short time later β€” Amburgey said he was not in Thursday’s lineup but was expected to start Friday.

The righthanded batter, who hit .312 this season with a .960 OPS in 38 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, said he was surprised by the timing of the move. The Yankees have lacked production from their left fielders this season, but Amburgey will now offer another corner outfield option, while Clint Frazier (dizziness) and Miguel Andujar (left wrist strain) are on the injured list.

“I’m ready,” Amburgey said. β€œI told everyone around me that I was ready. So when the call came, I was ready.

“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t frustrated” [waiting]. It’s a dream to come here and play for the Yankees. At the same time, I knew it was going to be difficult going into the year, not playing last year. So I had a tough hill to climb, but now that I’m here I’m ready to go when they call my name. ”

Amburgey, 26, who grew up as a Red Sox fan because his mother and grandparents were from Boston, was looking forward to making his debut against them. He expected 11 family members and friends to attend after sharing the news with them late Wednesday night after RailRiders manager Doug Davis broke the promotion to him.

“I was like, ‘I’m going to try and wake my wife,’ because she went to bed, it was after midnight,” Amburgey said. “So I said, ‘Hey, guess where I’ll be tomorrow?’ I started to cry and just lost it. I immediately called my parents. They were going to go to some concert this weekend and I was like, ‘You have to cancel.’ They were like, ‘Why?’ I’m like, ‘I’ll be in The Bronx.’ My mother lost it. So it was a good time.”

Amburgey, the Yankees’ 13th round in 2015, attributed his improved results this season to a change in approach.

“Stay in my zone, don’t buy in what” [the pitcher is] trying to do,” Amburgey said. “So far it has worked out and hopefully I can continue to do it here.”
