Rookie-Level Florida Complex League Yankees East

The Florida Complex League Yankees East started out their season with a 4-0 victory over the Tigers East. As I’m sure you know, this was the long-awaited debut of über-prospect Jasson Dominguez. He didn’t get a hit, so he’s obviously a bust. Anyway, these games are a bit different – there’s no pitch-tracking data, so we don’t know pitches thrown, pitches seen per at-bat, etc. Also, final programming note: this team was the affiliate known as the Gulf Coast League Yankees prior to 2021.

  • Starting Pitcher: RHP Juan Carela: 4.0 IP, 2 H, zeros, 3 K
  • In Relief: RHP Leonardo Pestana: 2.0 IP, zeros, 4 K – earned the win
  • In Relief: RHP Nick Paciorek: 3.0 IP, zeros, 5 K – earned the save
  • Jasson Watch: CF Jasson Dominguez: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 K – lead off the game with a strikeout…also popped up…nice to see the kid finally get into game action
  • Prospect Watch: SS Alexander Vargas: 0-3, 1 K – Baseball America’s #13 prospect for the Yankees hit .233/.313/.373 in 2019…the Cuban SS is now 19-years-old and has added 30 lbs to his frame without sacrificing defense at SS, per BA
  • Prospect Watch: DH Kevin Alcantara: 1-4, 2B, RBI, BB, K – Baseball America’s #12 Yankees prospect hit .255/.305.360 in 2019…he’s now 18-years-old with additional muscle mass and speed, again per BA
  • Prospect Watch: LF Everson Pereira: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 K – Baseball America’s #19 Yankees prospect struggled in 2019 after a very good pro debut season with Pulaski in 2018…he has good bat speed and exit velocity, per BA
  • Hitting Star: 3B Marcos Cabrera: 1-2, 2 R, 2B
  • Leftovers: good debut for the team, who struck out 12 without walking any, which is great for a young collection of players…Antonio Gomez, Madison Santos, Jose Martinez, and Alex Guerrero had the other hits for the FCL Yanks
