Player Outlook
It was quite an eventful age-20 season for The Martian. He was slow out of the gates at Double-A, logging a .685 OPS over his first 73 games. He seemingly flipped a switch in early July, slashing .372/.442/.557 with five home runs, 15 doubles, 18 steals on 22 attempts and a 17.3 K% in 44 games across Double-A and Triple-A before getting the call at the end of August. Jasson Dominguez took Justin Verlander deep on his first swing as a big leaguer and tallied four home runs and one steal in his first eight games before suffering a torn UCL that required Tommy John surgery. This is where things get murky. The Yankees are saying Dominguez will require 9-to-10 months to recover, putting his return date in the June/July range. Riley Greene underwent the same procedure at roughly the same time (mid September) and is expected to be ready for Opening Day, although unlike Dominguez, Greene's surgery was on his non-throwing elbow. Bryce Harper made it back as a first baseman in less than six months after undergoing the procedure on his throwing elbow in November of 2022. It may indeed cost Dominguez the first half of 2024 if New York will not bring him back as anything other than a center fielder, but it's possible he will be ready to hit in games as early as Opening Day. He hit third in seven of his eight big-league games, which is an excellent indicator of how he will be used when he returns to the Yankees lineup. Dominguez has the tools to go 15-15, even in a half season.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Moving rehab to Double-A

    The Yankees transferred Dominguez's (elbow) rehab assignment to Double-A Somerset on Tuesday. The 21-year-old began the rehab stint with Single-A Tampa last week and will move up to Somerset after going 5-for-13 with a double and four walks in four games. Dominguez is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he completes the rehab assignment since there's no opening for him in New York's current outfield alignment.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Likely to be optioned after rehab

    Dominguez (elbow) is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's activated from the 60-day injured list after his 20-day rehab window concludes, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Dominguez began a rehab assignment with Single-A Tampa on Tuesday as he comes back from Tommy John surgery. He will serve as the designated hitter for 10-to-14 days before eventually playing the outfield. The 21-year-old needs time to knock some rust off since he went eight months without playing games, so he'll likely need longer than the 20-day rehab allotment before he becomes an option for the Yankees. Additionally, the Yankees are happy with their current outfield situation, so there's not room for Dominguez to take on a regular role right now, barring injury. Dominguez is still a worthy stash in fantasy leagues given his upside, but it's possible it might not be until 2025 that he gets another extended run with the big club.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone noted Saturday that Dominguez will be the DH for the first two weeks of the assignment. Dominguez has continued to progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, and he can spend a maximum of 20 days on his rehab assignment before the Yankees will have to activate him. Dominguez could then be optioned for additional time to knock off the rust.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Not guaranteed CF job post-recovery

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Dominguez (elbow) is not guaranteed to immediately step in as the team's starting center fielder when he returns to full health, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Dominguez debuted with New York this past September and posted a robust .980 OPS with four home runs across his first eight major-league games before requiring Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery just a few weeks later. He projects to be recovered from that procedure around the middle of the 2024 campaign, but the 20-year-old rising star may spend a bit more time in the minors beyond the typical rehab assignment.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Set for UCL surgery Wednesday

    Dominguez will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair the torn UCL in his right elbow, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports. It won't be known until the operation whether Dominguez will require Tommy John surgery, an internal brace procedure or a combination of the two. Either way, the expected recovery time is 9-to-10 months, which means the young outfielder is likely to be sidelined until around midseason of 2024.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Likely to miss first half of 2024

    Dominguez is likely to miss the first half of the 2024 season after being diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The recovery from Tommy John surgery for position players isn't as long as it is for pitchers, but Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Dominguez's recovery will likely take 9-10 months. That suggests a return around the All-Star break of next season would be a best-case scenario for the young outfielder. The 20-year-old Dominguez made a great first impression in the big leagues, batting .258 with four home runs, a double, seven RBI, six runs and a steal over eight games.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Scratched with elbow inflammation

    Dominguez was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Brewers due to right elbow inflammation. It's unclear when the injury cropped up for Dominguez, who has started all eight games in center field since being called up by the Yankees on Sept. 1. The 20-year-old could be headed for medical imaging, and the organization is likely to be cautious with its top prospect amid the closing stretch of a lost season. Isiah Kiner-Falefa replaced him in center field Sunday.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Batting third again in home debut

    Dominguez is starting in center field and batting third in Tuesday's game versus the Tigers. Dominguez batted fifth in his major-league debut but has now been in the No. 3 spot for each of his next three games. The rookie has picked up one hit in each contest thus far, including a pair of home runs. Dominguez and his teammates will face Alex Faedo in Tuesday's contest.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Batting third Saturday

    Dominguez is starting in center field and hitting third Saturday against the Astros. Dominguez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in his big-league debut Friday, and the home run came off Justin Verlander on his first swing as a big leaguer. Anthony Volpe and Gleyber Torres (back) have recently occupied the three hole, but it's possible Dominguez stays in this prime spot if he continues to produce.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Promotion made official

    The Yankees selected Dominguez's contract from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday. News broke Thursday that Dominguez was on his way to the big leagues and his promotion has now been made official. The 20-year-old got off to a slow start in the minors this season but slashed .348/.419/.507 with five home runs and 21 steals across his last 50 games between Double-A Somerset and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He'll get an opportunity as the Yankees' everyday center fielder down the stretch.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Hyped as the next Mike Trout from the time he was 16 years old, Dominguez hasn't exactly steamrolled his way to the majors, but the Yankees are nonetheless giving him a shot at age 20 in the hope he stakes out a job for 2024. He's arriving on a high note, at least, having hit .364 (68 for 187) with a .980 OPS in his past 45 games, but it took that kind of surge just to get his season batting average to .265. His exit velocities hint of big power in the future, but it mostly manifested as doubles during his hot streak. Still, he knows how to take a walk and is aggressive on the base paths. Whenever a player arrives this young, with this sort of pedigree, you'd be wise not to underestimate his upside. Growing pains are to be expected, but since he's here to play, presumably taking Harrison Bader's spot in center field, Dominguez is a must-add at least in five-outfielder leagues.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Getting call to majors

    The Yankees will call up Dominguez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of Friday's series opener in Houston, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. "The Martian" is on his way to the big leagues and should immediately step into an everyday role in the Yankees outfield. Dominguez got off to a somewhat underwhelming start this season in the minors, but he flipped the script in early July and has now rocketed to the majors at age 20 after slashing .348/.419/.507 with five home runs and 21 steals across his last 50 games between Double-A Somerset and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Dominguez's power/speed combination gives him plenty of long-term fantasy upside, though he could be a batting-average drain initially in his first taste of the majors.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Moving up to Triple-A

    The Yankees will promote Dominguez from Double-A Somerset to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, Brendan Kuty and Chris Kirschner of The Athletic report. After dropping their last eight games to fall four games under .500, the Yankees appear to have waved the white flag on contending for a playoff spot this season and will likely shift into evaluation mode over the final six weeks of the campaign. As such, the Yankees will promote two of their top prospects from Triple-A in Everson Pereira and Oswald Peraza to the big leagues Tuesday, while Dominguez will get the bump up from Double-A to fill one of the open roster spots at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The 20-year-old power-hitting outfielder has posted a .781 OPS in 109 games overall for Somerset this season, but he's been running especially hot since the All-Star break. Through his first 33 games of the second half, Dominguez slashed .354/.416/.549 while keeping his strikeout rate under 20 percent. He'll look to make a splash at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in September with the hope of contending for a spot on the Yankees' Opening Day roster in 2024.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Heating up at plate

    Dominguez has reached base in seven straight games with Double-A Somerset, slashing .346/.485/.615 with two homers, eight RBI, a stolen base and a 7:5 BB:K over that stretch. After making a big splash with the Yankees in spring training, Dominguez struggled mightily over his first 19 contests with Somerset this season, batting just .125 with two homers. He appears to be getting on track, however, and has boosted his season average closer to the Mendoza Line at .195. Despite his overall struggles on the campaign, the 20-year-old has displayed elite patience at the plate with a 25.5 percent walk rate, leading to an outstanding .402 on-base percentage. He's also swiped 10 bags in 11 attempts so far.
