Florial was optioned to the alternate training site after Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
The 22-year-old was recalled by the Yankees over the weekend, but he didn't see the field during his brief time with the team. Florial went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts in his lone big-league appearance.
Florial was recalled from the Yankees' alternate training site Sunday.
He's not in the lineup Sunday, but Florial will provide outfield depth for the series finale against Baltimore and possibly beyond with the Yankees still down several regulars. Florial has lost quite a bit of his shine as a prospect after struggling to a .237/.297/.383 line at High-A last season as a 21-year-old.
Florial was returned to the Yankees' alternate training site following Friday's doubleheader.
Florial made his major-league debut during Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader and went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts. He'll return to alternate camp, and it's unclear whether he'll rejoin the active roster prior to the end of the 2020 season.
Florial will serve as the 29th man in Friday's doubleheader against the Mets and is starting in center field for Game 1, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
The 22-year-old will make his major-league debut Friday as the Yankees deal with a myriad of injuries, and it will be his first appearance above the High-A level. Florial should return to the alternate training site after the twin bill.
Florial was optioned to the Yankees' alternate training site Tuesday.
Florial was never expected to break camp with the big-league club as he has yet to play beyond the High-A level. The 22-year-old remains on the Yankees' 40-man roster, but it would be a surprise to see him log major-league playing time this season.
Florial will take part in the Yankees' summer camp as part of their 60-man player pool.
Florial's prospect star has faded a bit in recent years, but his combination of power and speed continues to tantalize the Yankees (and dynasty-league managers). The 22-year-old struggled at the High-A level last season and collected only three hits in 17 spring at-bats before play was suspended, so he's unlikely to be ready for major-league playing time in 2020.
Florial was optioned to Double-A Trenton on Monday.
Florial struggled in Grapefruit League play, hitting .176 with a home run and four RBI in 17 at-bats. Still, the move to Double-A represents a promotion from last season when he hit .237 with eight homers and nine stolen bases with High-A Tampa.
Florial could begin 2020 at Double-A Trenton, Sweeny Murti of Sportsradio 66 WFAN reports.
Once among the Yankees' top prospects, Florial has seen his stock drop due to a pair of wrist injuries that have limited him to 158 games in the lower levels of the minors over the last two seasons. Nonetheless, the Yankees like the 22-year-old's athleticism enough to add him to the 40-man roster, and manager Aaron Boone indicated that Florial may begin the campaign in Double-A despite limited success in High-A ball last season. He's unlikely to make an impact at the major-league level this season, but Florial is a name to watch if he can stay healthy and put together a season matching his considerable tools.
Florial was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster Wednesday.
Florial has spent the last two seasons at High-A Tampa, but the Yankees still opted to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. The young outfielder will turn 22 next week, but he's coming off his worst season since rookie ball with a .237/.297/.383 slash line in 74 games.
Florial went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run for High-A Tampa on Tuesday.
Making his 2019 season debut after coming off the injured list with a fractured wrist, Florial wasted no time making his presence felt, hitting a single and cranking a three-run homer in his first two at-bats back in High-A. Florial's raw talent isn't in question, so now that he's seemingly fully healthy after missing extended time over the past two seasons with wrist problems, it will be interesting to see if he can start living up to his potential with the Tarpons.
Florial (wrist) has been activated from the 7-day injured list and will join High-A Tampa.
Florial has been sidelined since fracturing his wrist running into an outfield wall in spring training, but he's been cleared to return and will report to the Tarpons. The 21-year-old is an intriguing prospect that hit .355 with one homer and four RBI in 13 games during spring training, but he's struggled to stay on the field, as wrist problems also limited him to 84 minor-league games last season. Now healthy, he'll look to improve on the .255/.354/.361 slash line he posted over 75 High-A games last year.
Florial (wrist) underwent an MRI and visited a hand specialist Monday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Florial was diagnosed with a non-displaced right wrist fracture after crashing into the outfield wall over the weekend. Monday's MRI revealed a small second fracture, however the issue is reportedly inconsequential and isn't expected to affect his recovery time. It's still unclear exactly how long the youngster will be sidelined, but the fact that he won't need surgery bodes well for his chances of avoiding an extended absence. He's expected to wear a hard cast for a few weeks before being reevaluated. Once healthy, Florial figures to report to either High-A Tampa or Double-A Trenton.
Florial said that he won't require surgery to address the non-displaced fracture of his right wrist he suffered Saturday, George A. King III and Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports.
Florial relayed that he'll still require an MRI on Monday as the Yankees look to determine how long he'll be sidelined, but the fact that surgery is off the table bodes well for his chances of avoiding a lengthy absence. The 21-year-old required surgery for the same wrist last season and was limited to just 84 games at the minor-league level. He'll likely continue to rehab at the Yankees' spring-training facility in Florida while he opens the upcoming campaign on the injured list for either High-A Tampa or Double-A Trenton.
Florial (wrist) will visit a hand specialist Tuesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Florial was diagnosed with a non-displaced right wrist fracture after crashing into the outfield wall Saturday. He's set to undergo further tests Monday before visiting a specialist later in the week. A timeline for the youngster's return should emerge following Tuesday's appointment.
Florial was diagnosed with a non-displaced right wrist fracture Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Florial suffered the injury when crashing into the center-field fence Saturday. Initial X-rays were described as precautionary but wound up revealing bad news. The young outfielder will undergo further tests Monday, at which point a clearer picture of his timeline should emerge.
Florial will undergo X-rays on his wrist after crashing into the fence in center field Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
The X-rays are being described as "precautionary," so it's possible that there's little reason to worry. A clearer sense of his return timeline should be available following the tests.
Florial received an invitation to the Yankees' major-league spring training on Friday.
Florial has yet to play above High-A, so his odds of reaching the majors this season are slim. Still, he'll get an opportunity to work with the team's big-league coaching staff as he prepares to climb the ladder ahead of a potential debut sometime in 2020. The 21-year-old outfielder possesses good speed but hit just .255 with three homers in 75 games for High-A Tampa last season.
Florial (wrist) was reinstated from the minor-league disabled list Thursday, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.
Florial will return to action with High-A Tampa after suffering a hamate bone injury in his right wrist in the middle of May. Over nine rehab contests with the organization's Rookie League Gulf Coast affiliate, Florial went 17-for-31 (.548 average) with three home runs, eight RBI and five stolen bases. More importantly, he didn't experience any problems and will resume his 2018 campaign in the Florida State League in the coming days.
Florial (wrist) has appeared in four rehab games for two of the Yankees' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliates, going a combined 4-for-10 with a home run and four steals in those contests.
It was expected that Florial would be sidelined for two and a half months after undergoing surgery in mid-May to repair the hamate bone in his right wrist, but the young outfielder seems to have healed faster than anticipated. He'll likely make a few more appearances at the rookie-ball level before returning to action at High-A Tampa. Prior to being shut down with the injury, the 20-year-old was slashing .246/.353/.343 across 156 plate appearances in the Florida State League.
Florial will be sidelined for the next two-and-a-half months as he requires surgery to fix a hamate bone injury in his right wrist, George A. King of the New York Post reports.
Florial will be placed on the minor-league DL and is expected to remain on the shelf until the beginning of August. The outfield prospect suffered the injury during Thursday's game with High-A Tampa. Obviously this setback will hinder the 20-year-old's potential for moving up through the Yankees' system this summer, so it remains to be seen whether he will get a chance at the Double-A level once he's back in action.
