Yankees: Jasson Dominguez Looks Too Jacked to Be a Real Person in New BP Footage
By Jerry Trotta
Yankees prospect Jasson Dominguez looked insanely jacked in latest workout video.
During last year’s international signing period, the Yankees forked over a franchise record $5.1 million to sign outfielder Jasson Dominguez from his native Dominican Republic. He turned 17 a few months ago and has yet to play an official inning for any of New York’s minor league affiliates.
Despite his lack of experience, the sheer hype surrounding him is almost overwhelming as he’s already widely considered the club’s top prospect and has assumed the nickname, “The Martian.”
Well, for any Yankees fans itching for some footage of Dominguez demolishing baseballs, we’ve got you covered. It would be an insult to the young phenom if we simply said he looked jacked in this clip, so let’s just say that he might be a clone of Los Angeles Rams all-world defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
This is a 17-year-old? What is he doing to pitchers his age? This can’t be fair. Call us crazy, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Dominguez could keep up with the likes of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton in the weight room.
If you want to feel bad about yourself, just think about how unimposing your physique was around the time you received your driver’s license. If you want to feel even worse, just think of your physique right now.
For those who forgot, Dominguez is a switch hitter and his swing is just as pretty and ferocious from the right side of the plate. Just listen to the crack of the bat here:
Due to the global pandemic, Yankees fans won’t get the chance to witness Dominguez’s debut this year, but something tell us that they’ll be just fine letting the hype build for another several months while the big league club chases World Series No. 28 in the shortened season.
