DoTF: Jasson Logs 2 Hits in Tampa Debut; Waldichuk is Great Again

News & Notes

  • A bunch of cool promotions yesterday. Here’s the full rundown:
    • Somerset to Scranton: Glenn Otto
    • Hudson Valley to Somerset: Brandon Lockridge
    • Tampa to Hudson Valley: Anthony Volpe, Pat DeMarco, Jacob Sanford
    • FCL Yankees to Tampa: Jasson Dominguez, Ryder Green, Aldenis Sanchez
  • Obviously, quite a bit of news there. I’m especially pleased to see Otto and Volpe get rewarded for their exceptional seasons to date. As for Jasson, it’s an aggressive promotion that I can’t help but love. The 18-year-old phenom spent just a week in the FCL, so this promotion reflects his raw talent, work ethic, and the faith the Yanks have in him. It’s hard not to be excited by this.

Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

The RailRiders improved to 38-20 on the season after defeating the Red Sox 5-2. They allowed just 4 hits, walked just 1, and struck out 10. It was another fine, fine performance.

Double-A Somerset Patriots

The Patriots are 39-21 on the season following yesterday’s 3-2 victory over the Flying Squirrels. They won despite going 0-8 with RISP in the game, though they did strike out 15 Squirrels, which’ll play.

  • Starting Pitcher: LHP Ken Waldichuk: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 11 K – 65% of his pitches were strikes…the lefty has been a smashing success story for the new pitching regime

  • Extra-Terrestrial Landing: DH Jasson Dominguez: 2-4, 2B, RBI – he lead off, which is another sign that the Yanks want to get him as many at-bats at as high a level as possible
  • Multi-Hit Watch: LF Aldenis Sanchez: 2-4, R, RBI – another nice promotional debut on the day for the org
  • Power Watch: 3B Andres Chaparro: 1-3, HR, RBI, BB, K – that’s his 7th HR of the season, in 170 AB…he had 17 in 745 AB before 2021

2021 Draft: Day 2 Recap & Day 3 Preview


Prospect Profile: Trey Amburgey


  1. Brian M

    Cashman has said before that if you’re on AA or above you could potentially get called up. Wondering if Otto has a shot of joining the team soon, especially since we don’t have a 5th starter and German might need to get moved to the bullpen.

  2. DZB

    So nice to see Jasson get a solid start after his promotion to full season ball. Not just two hits, but one of the extra base variety. It’s also nice to see the emergence of a few really promising prospects down on the farm after the relatively recent graduations left the farm depleted at the top end.

    Now they need to identify the fringe players and make some trades. There will be a rule 5 roster crunch and the best way to deal with that is to move some guys now to give this season a ride. I can see the argument to sell, but I still feel like they have a shot at a lottery ticket of a WC slot.
