1. Jasson Dominguez
And finally! The prospect everyone’s been waiting for. Highlighting the AFL for the Yankees will be No. 2 overall prospect Jasson Dominguez, who, after a slow start to his pro career last year and the beginning of 2022, has rocketed his toward the spotlight many have been hoping he’d soon reach (ridiculous expectations, and unfair to be honest).
On the year as a whole, Dominguez hit .274 with an .829 OPS, 88 runs scored, 15 homers, 58 RBI and 36 stolen bases across 117 games. He got a last-second end-of-year promotion to Double-A after dominating High-A Hudson Valley (.30 6 AVG., .906 OPS, 6 HR, 22 RBI, 17 SBs in 40 games). Maybe he … likes the spotlight?
After Dominguez’s slow-ish start at Single-A Tampa, you’d have to guess the Yankees didn’t expect his breakout at High-A, which might’ve influenced the decision to send him to Arizona. Though went 0-for-10 with four strikeouts in Somerset, something tells us we’re about to get some legitimate Martian highlights in the very near future.
