The Martian headed to Triple-A Scranton

BRIDGEWATER, NJ --The Yankees announced on Monday that OF  Jasson “The Martian” Dominguez gets the call-up to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre, along with Major League call-ups for Everson Pereira and Oswald Peraza, who were every day starters in Scranton. It was first reported by Brendan Kuty of the Athletic.

I wrote about The Martian when he was invited to Spring Training in February.  This is huge for Dominguez, who was struggling early on. He has earned the call up after an impressive month of July and August. Current Stats: .254/.367/.414, 83 R, 108 H, 66 RBI, and 15 HR. Here’s his 15th on Friday:

This news came moments after Minor League Baseball named Jasson Domínguez as their Double-A Eastern League Player of the Week for August 14 - 20. Dominguez has earned Eastern League Player of the Week honors after going 13-for-28 (.464) with eight RBIs, eight runs, two homers and five doubles in Reading this past weekend.

Dominguez is the Yankees second ranked prospect. He conquered Double-A and led the Eastern League in Runs (83), and BB (83). He is also second in Hits (108), and stolen bases (37). Dominguez is a well rounded player exhibiting defense, power and speed, a legitimate five tool player. He showcases plate discipline every at bat is no wonder he leads in walks, he makes the right swing decisions. Nerd stats:  69.9% In-Zone Swing% (83rd Percentile), 21.2% Out-of-Zone Swing% (98th Percentile). Jasson has earned his call-up to Triple-A. Here is a testament of his speed:


So far, this month of August, The Martian is slashing .380/.438/.608, 1.046 OPS with three homers, 14 RBIs and nine multi-hit games. On the field, Domínguez had three errors and four OF assists with a FLD .985%. He has played 57 games in centerfield and 44 in leftfield. At just 20 years old and working his way up to Triple-A is a great step towards a possible call up with the Yankees next season.
