Small sample size be damned, Yankees top prospect Jesus Montero can rake with the best of ‘em. He followed up His first career multi-hit game with His first career homer as part of His first multi-homer game, which came in a crazy 11-10 Yankees win that put the team up 2 1/2 games in the division.
As I said before it’s clearly a small sample, but in the first four games of His MLB career the 21-year-old messiah is hitting .385 (5-for-13)/.467/.846 with two homers, three RBI, five runs scored and 11 total bases.
I’m looking forward to seeing this kid develop in the majors, however, I’m not looking forward to His regression. Although if He keeps up some sort of pace like this you have to figure He hits His way onto the postseason roster. Poor Jorge.
After the jump check out some quotes and pictures I took at today’s game:
The first one, when I hit it, I was like, ‘that’s a home run for sure.’ When I feel the bat, I was like, ‘gone.’
Today I have a nice day, thank God I hit the two home runs to help the team and I show a little bit to the fans and the people. Now there’s more to come
Jesus on his two curtain calls:
I’ve seen everybody doing that, and I was dreaming of that before. I’ve seen Jeter and Posada and everybody doing that, and I’ve always told myself, ‘one day, I’m going to be one of those guys.’ It was an amazing moment. I’m so happy right now.
I think sometimes you put a ton of pressure on yourself when you have an opportunity to get there. Well now he’s here and he knows he’s going to get at-bats and we’re going to see what this young man can do. But I think he put so much pressure on himself in spring training…it’s tough to succeed that way.
