  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Bumped up to Double-A

    Dominguez was promoted to Double-A Somerset on Tuesday. It has become commonplace this season for top prospects to get pushed aggressively up the ladder when lower-level seasons get wrapped up, and this promotion will allow Dominguez's season to continue following the conclusion of the High-A season Tuesday. Dominguez, 19, hit .306/.397/.510 with six home runs and 17 steals in 40 games at High-A. He should open next year back at Double-A.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Post-hype breakout at High-A

    Dominguez is hitting .323/.463/.532 with two home runs, 10 steals on 11 attempts and a 14:16 K:BB in 17 games this month for High-A Hudson Valley. The switch-hitting 19-year-old is starting to live up to the hype, and those in dynasty leagues who were patient with him should feel vindicated. On the season, Dominguez is hitting .270/.381/.449 at Low-A and High-A, with his production improving as the season has progressed.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Impressive in High-A debut

    Dominguez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, three total runs, a walk and a stolen base in his first game at the High-A level Friday. Dominguez's homer was a dramatic one, as it tied the score with two outs in the ninth inning. The 19-year-old now has 10 long balls and 20 thefts across 77 games this season, and he is batting .326 (15-for-46) since June 28. Dominguez has seen his stock fall a bit since he was introduced to the baseball world as one of the most hyped teenage physical specimens in recent memory, but he still has plenty of time and potential to round into a legitimate major-league star.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Advances to High-A

    Dominguez was promoted to High-A Hudson Valley on Saturday. The highly-touted 19-year-old is done with the Single-A level after slashing .264/.372/.438 in 76 games for Tampa. He homered nine times and added 19 steals. The only negative in his stat line is a 27.4 percent strikeout rate, a number which could cause problems if it continues to rise as he climbs his way towards the big leagues. Whether he winds up as a true all-around star or a toolsy but flawed player will depend in large part on whether or not he can keep his contact issues under control.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Dealing with stomach flu

    Dominguez, whom the Yankees brought up from minor-league camp, won't be available off the bench in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies after he experienced a case of the stomach flu, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. The illness isn't expected to be anything that affects the 19-year-old slugger's availability for the start of the minor-league season. After posting a .744 OPS in 214 plate appearances for Low-A Tampa in 2021, Dominguez could open the upcoming season at High-A Hudson Valley.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Riding roller coaster in Low-A ball

    Dominguez has reached base safely in eight straight games with Low-A Tampa, but his season batting average sits at .259 and he has struck out in 31.8 percent of his plate appearances. Any discussion of Dominguez's ups and downs should be preceded by a reminder that he is only 18 years old and getting his first taste of full-season professional baseball. The vaunted prospect began his stint with Tampa by collecting at least one hit in nine straight games, during which he amassed a .324/.390/.514 slash line. Dominguez then struggled through a 6-for-42 stretch over his following 11 contests, but he has rebounded by slashing .324/.409/.432 over his past 10 games. The overall results -- which include just three homers in 116 at-bats and two stolen bases in five attempts -- aren't eye-popping, but Dominguez has done nothing to suggest that he can't live up to the massive potential that is evident to so many.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Riding eight-game hit streak

    Dominguez has collected at least one hit in each of his first eight games with Low-A Tampa. The 18-year-old has looked good in the early going of his first stint in full-season ball, batting .333 with a home run, a triple, a double, five RBI and four walks through 33 at-bats. Dominguez isn't likely to reach the majors this season but has done nothing to hurt his standing as the organization's top prospect.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Gets call to full-season affiliate

    The Yankees promoted Dominguez from the Florida Complex League to Low-A Tampa on Tuesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The 18-year-old made his professional debut earlier this month for the organization's FCL affiliate, appearing in seven games and going 4-for-20 with a pair of stolen bases. That was enough for the Yankees to move the switch-hitting outfielder up to the Low-A Southeast, where he'll be one of the league's youngest players. Lauded for his impressive bat speed, plus running and plus power, Dominguez will be one of the top prospects to monitor in the lower levels of minor-league baseball throughout the summer.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Makes professional debut

    Dominguez went 0-for-2 with a walk in his first professional game for the Florida Complex League Yankees on Monday. The Yankees' most-hyped prospect had a rather quiet debut, striking out in his first at-bat and popping out his next time up. He then drew a walk in his third plate appearance. Dominguez was back in the lineup Tuesday and went 0-for-1 with a strikeout and another pair of walks. At 18 years of age and in the lowest level of the minors, Dominguez is clearly years away from being ready to play in the majors, but dynasty-league and keeper-league managers who are stashing the outfielder will now be able to track his progress through game stats.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Extended spring training continues

    Dominguez will remain in extended spring training in Tampa this week instead of reporting to one of the Yankees' minor-league affiliates, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The Yankees were vague about Dominguez's future location and timetable to get there. "Everything that we've seen from this kid, he's super talented, but he hasn't played a game here yet," Kevin Reese, the Yankees' senior director of player development, said this spring.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Assignment TBD

    Contrary to a previous report, Dominguez will not be opening the year at High-A Hudson Valley, Robert M. Pimpsner of Pinstriped Pros reports. There were reports swirling Thursday that Dominguez would open at High-A as an 18-year-old, which would have been a very aggressive assignment, even for someone with Dominguez's tools and pedigree. He will likely either open at Low-A or be held back in extended spring training.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Path through minors TBD

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated Friday that the organization is not yet ready to reveal a plan for Dominguez's development through the minors, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports. Despite the substantial hype for the Yankees' top prospect, Dominguez has yet to play in a minor-league game and is not attending major-league spring training. Cashman suggested that the organization isn't going to rush Dominguez, saying, "He's like everybody else in the minor-league population waiting for a minor-league spring training report time and see where it takes him." The minor-league season has already been delayed and it's unclear when minor-league spring will start, so at this time the level at which Dominguez will begin his journey is unclear. Whatever decision is made, the outfielder is unlikely to ascend to the big leagues until at least 2023.
