The Yankees promoted Sweeney from High-A Hudson Valley to Double-A Somerset on Tuesday.

Sweeney will essentially be filling the roster spot vacated by top Yankees shortstop prospect Anthony Volpe, who was advanced to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last Friday. A 2021 first-round pick, Sweeney has thus far spent his entire second professional season at Hudson Valley, with whom he slashed .241/.350/.415 with 14 home runs and 29 stolen bases over 457 plate appearances.
