Jasson Dominguez Likely To Get Called Up By The Yankees, Claims MLB Broadcaster

Jasson Dominguez, also known as “The Martian,” was signed by the mighty New York Yankees as an international free agent in 2019 for a record-breaking signing bonus of $5.1 million. Since then, he has made a name for himself in the minor leagues with his impressive power, speed, and all-around skills. The prospect also received a call-up for this year’s spring training, wherein he left a deep impact.

Dominguez ended spring with .455, four home runs, and nine RBI in 22 at-bats. However, due to the stubbornness of the Yankees clubhouse to squeeze some performances from the likes of Aaron Hicks and Isiah Kiner-Falefa cost him a place on the final roster. The Bombers then assigned him to Double-A Somerset Patriots. However, the recent injury crisis can come as a blessing in disguise for the Martian.

The New York Yankees have landed in hot waters due to the recent injury crisis. The outfield depth has ceased to exist after Aaron Judge landed on a 10-day IL. Moreover, the front office’s most favored outfielders, Aaron Hicks, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa, are merely filling up the rosters with negligible contributions to the offense. Hence, the team remains desperate for answers. Amid the crisis, Michael Kay, the Yankees broadcaster for YES Network, has made a bold claim. He said a high-level Yankees executive has suggested that one must not be too surprised to see top prospect Jasson Dominguez in the big leagues this season.

Jasson Dominguez, who plays for the Double-A at the moment, had an impressive spring outing. However, his numbers in the minors this year have been somewhat underwhelming. He has hit .153 with two homers and seven RBI in 59 at-bats. However, the Martian has been a silent contributor, with 22 walks and 10 stolen bases. On top of that, keeping the Yankee’s current dire state in consideration, the club could use any help they get. At just 20 years old, Dominguez has plenty of time to develop his skills and reach his full potential. However, if the Yankees do call him up this season, it would be a significant milestone in his career and an opportunity for him to showcase his sheer talent at the highest level of the sport.

Yankees Fans Excited Over The Fresh Rumor Regarding Dominguez’s Roster Inclusion

Meanwhile, the New York Yankees fan base has further fueled the speculation. As soon as Michael Kay gave birth to an unconfirmed rumor regarding Jasson Dominguez’s inclusion in the Yankees roster, the fans swarmed Twitter to express their excitement. A certain fraction of the fans has supported the idea of including Jasson in the big leagues ever since his impressive spring training stint. Hence, when the rumors resurfaced, they could not help but support the idea.

The Yankees are currently struggling at the last place in the American League East, and their offense has remained a major point of concern. While the team has several talented hitters, they have struggled to produce consistently, and the addition of a player like Jasson Dominguez could provide a much-needed boost. Despite his youth and lack of experience, Dominguez has shown that he has the talent, skills, and potential to make an impact at the highest level. If he does get called up by the Yankees this season, it will be exciting to see what he can bring to the table and how he can help the team turn their season around.
