  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Optioned to Triple-A

    Florial was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

    Florial was called up Sunday, but he didn't log any plate appearances during his time with the major-league club. He'll now head back to the minors after Domingo German (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Rejoins big-league club

    Florial was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Florial will join the Yankees ahead of Sunday's series finale against Cleveland as outfield depth with Joey Gallo managing neck tightness. Florial is 6-for-20 with a home run, two RBI, three runs and a stolen base in nine major-league games this season, and he's unlikely to see significant run as long as the rest of the outfield remains healthy.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Sent to Triple-A

    Florial was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

    Florial joined the major-league club Wednesday and will return to the minors without appearing in a game. The 23-year-old has played in nine games for the Yankees this year and is 6-for-20 with a homer, two doubles, two RBI, three runs and a stolen base.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Recalled by Yankees

    Florial was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

    Florial has had limited playing time in the majors this year, but he'll return to the Yankees as outfield depth. The 23-year-old was sent down Aug. 21 and hit .263 with four doubles, seven runs, four RBI and two stolen bases across nine minor-league games since then.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Sent back down

    Florial was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Saturday's win over the Twins.

    Florial was called up to serve as depth in center field with Brett Gardner (arm) out of the lineup Saturday, and he appeared as a pinch runner. However, the 23-year-old will head back to the minors, where he should receive more consistent playing time.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Recalled by Yankees

    Florial was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

    The 23-year-old spent just over a week with the minor-league club, and he went 5-for-16 with three doubles, two runs and two RBI across his last four games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Brett Gardner is dealing with soreness after he was hit by a pitch Friday, so Florial will be available as outfield depth.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Returns to minors

    Florial was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

    Florial served as the 27th man for Thursday's "Field of Dream" contest, and he'll return to the minors after not appearing in the game. The 23-year-old has a .990 OPS in 25 plate appearances for the Yankees this season, but he's unlikely to have much of a role down the stretch with the outfield bolstered by the acquisition of Joey Gallo at the trade deadline.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Called up as 27th man

    Florial was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to serve as the 27th man in Thursday's game against the White Sox.

    Florial was sent back to the minors at the end of July, and he's gone 2-for-26 with a double, three runs and an RBI across six games since then. He's hit .300 with a homer, three runs, two RBI and a stolen base in 20 major-league at-bats this year.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Optioned back to Triple-A

    Florial was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.

    Florial has been now been optioned twice in the last three days, this time to make room on the roster for the acquisition of Anthony Rizzo. He could return again to fill a depth role in the outfield, though his path to playing time has become more complicated with the recent additions made by the club.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Returns to majors

    Florial was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

    Florial will return to the major-league roster just one day after he was sent down. The 23-year-old has gone 5-for-17 with a home run, two doubles, three runs, two RBI and a stolen base across six games with the Yankees this year.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Yankees optioned Florial to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

    Florial appeared in five games during this latest big-league stint, going 4-for-14 with a home run, two RBI and three runs. He returns to the minor leagues now that Aaron Judge (COVID-19) is back with the Yankees. Barring injuries or COVID-19 infections, it seems unlikely Florial will see any more major-league time in 2021.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Out again against lefty

    Florial is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Rays and left-hander Shane McClanahan, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Florial has gotten regular time against right-handers in recent days, but he'll retreat to the bench against the southpaw Tuesday. With Aaron Judge (illness) back from the COVID-19 IL, it's possible that Florial sees less time even against right-handers, though it's not yet clear how the Yankees plan to utilize the rookie going forward.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Sits versus lefty

    Florial is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    The lefty-hitting Florial had started in center field in four of the past five contests, but he'll cede his spot in the outfield to the righty-hitting Ryan LaMarre with a southpaw (Martin Perez) on the mound. Florial should continue to hold down a near-everyday role for the Yankees until the team gets Aaron Judge (illness) back from the COVID-19 injured list during the upcoming week.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Starting again in CF

    Florial will start in center field and bat eighth Thursday against the Red Sox.

    Florial is picking up his third consecutive start, and he looks poised to stick in a near-everyday role at least until the Yankees get one of Aaron Judge (COVID-19), Clint Frazier (eye), Trey Amburgey (hamstring) or Miguel Andujar (wrist) back from the injured list. Over the past two games, Florial has gone 2-for-6 with a home run, a stolen base, two walks, two RBI and two runs.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Notches first big-league steal

    Florial went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in a 6-5 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Florial's wheels were largely responsible for the run that broke a 2-2 tie in the seventh inning. He reached base on a one-out infield single, then stole second base. After DJ LeMahieu struck out, Giancarlo Stanton singled to right field, allowing Florial to race home. Florial has gone 1-for-3 in each of his first three games with the Yankees this season after going 1-for-3 in his lone game with the squad in 2020.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Belts first big-league homer

    Florial went 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Tuesday's 6-4 win over Philadelphia.

    The 23-year-old was called up early Tuesday in conjunction with Trey Amburgey (hamstring) hitting the injured list. Florial knocked in a run with a groundout in the third inning and later notched his first major-league homer in the eighth. In nine big-league at-bats, Florial has collected three hits, including a double and Tuesday's homer.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Earns another call-up

    Florial was recalled by the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Florial has appeared in a single big-league game in both 2020 and 2021, going 1-for-3 at the plate each time. He'll fill a short-term need for the Yankees in the outfield, where the team now has five players on the injured list after Trey Amburgey (hamstring) landed there in a corresponding move. Florial has potential as a prospect thanks to his big raw power and speed, but contact issues could prevent him from making the most of those tools. That's been the case in 42 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, as he's homered eight times and stolen nine bases but is hitting just .213/.318/.408 thanks in part to a 29.1 percent strikeout rate.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Called up by Yankees

    Florial was recalled by the Yankees on Thursday.

    The Yankees declined to call Florial up in mid May when Aaron Hicks went down with a wrist injury, but he's up now after Luke Voit (oblique) landed on the injured list. Florial is a compelling prospect but a rather flawed one. Scouts love his speed and raw power, but he may not make enough contact to be an everyday player. He owns a career 28.1 percent strikeout rate in the minors and struck out 32.6 percent of the time in 74 games for High-A Tampa in 2019, though he's at least cut that mark to 25.3 percent in a small sample of 17 games in the upper minors this year.

  • Yankees' Estevan Florial: Back to minors

    Florial was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Thursday's doubleheader.

    Florial's 2021 debut proved brief, as he was sent down after starting in center field and batting eighth in the second game of the team's doubleheader Thursday. No corresponding move has been announced, but it is expected that Giancarlo Stanton (quadriceps) will be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
