    Yankees 2020 Minor League News & Notes

    Jasson Dominguez is on Twitter if you didn't know, and he loves the avocado emoji. He's basically using it like a personal logo.

    Also, the videos he posts, when listened to with sound, could potentially be used to cure terminal diseases.



    My god, I really hope this kid is for real. The Yankees signed Gerrit Cole this offseason, and I'm almost as excited to follow Jasson in 2020 as I am to track the team that enters the year as World Series favorites. Man...

    Hope he can stick in CF. It'll be interesting to see how his body fills out, and if he'll need to move to a corner. Very big difference in value.

    Can't wait to see what Jassssssson does this year. The hype is insane.

    Nothing but aguacates con esteroides.

    They should invite him to Spring Training and compete for the CF job.

    Feels like he's going to disappoint if he isn't Trout-like from the start. Hopefully he gets off to a good start.

    BA ranked him #38 on their top 100 prospect list. Thatís absurd.

    It's going to be like 2014, isn't it? We go as all-in as possible and end up choosing the wrong year/guys.

    Gleyber, Eloy, Soto, Acuna, Tatis Jr, Vlad Jr, Franco...

    I wonder how much they've seen and personally measured, and how much is info being fed them to support giving a 16 year old these scouting grades.

    Hit: 60
    Power: 70
    Run: 70
    Fielding: 60
    Arm: 60

    I really hope they've gotten eyes on him to validate those grades, because as we all know the info that has trickled out is just insane.

    On both sides of the plate, Dominguez has reportedly hit exit velocities over 110 mph. And speaking of speed, he ran a 6.3 60-yard dash. Putting that into perspective: Billy Hamilton, the fastest man in baseball, runs a 6.2 60-yard dash.

    Re: Yankees 2020 Minor League News & Notes

    BA Top 100 released today. As THEBOSS said above, Jasson is #38.

    Yankees:

    #38 - Jasson Dominguez
    #62 - Clarke Schmidt
    #65 - Deivi Garcia

    I'm enjoying the love they're giving Schmidt. Conversely, they don't fully believe in Deivi.

    Big picture though - the Yankees have TWO top-100 SP prospects in the upper levels of the minor leagues. And that doesn't count MLB ready arms like King and Montgomery (as well as seemingly countless big arms at lower levels poised to make the leap into the Top-100 lists of the near future).

    I don't recognize any top 100 list that doesn't have Mike King top 5.

    Where's he going to start? DSL or stateside down in Pulaski or up a notch in the GCL?

    I love he's only 5'10 and a little ball of muscle. Your strike zone is smaller. Height in baseball isn't advantageous.

    With 70 speed.

    I really love that aspect of his physical profile, too.

    He might not be done growing yet, but boys usually are done during their 16th year.
