Makes a lot of sense. Give live MLB reps in relatively low stress environment for a month and see what you've got. If Jasson hits .125 in September, you know he needs more seasoning. If he performs well, he hasn't won the job in 2024 but you have a pretty good sense for roster planning in the offseason. Volpe is has cut down the strike out rate a decent amount and his ABs have been better on the occasions I've seen. He also has a pretty low BABIP. If he finishes strong and Jasson has a nice month, things look more promising for this franchise.Oh yeah!
10 days ago I talked about how NY had it in their own power to promote four guys to try to reinvigorate the team whenever they wanted, now all four will be up.
That part we knew from the start, from page 1 of this thread:I like the fact that Jasson wanted to give that interview with Karl Ravech in English. He seems to have a quiet confidence about himself.
ESPN also reported Jasson is named after Jason Giambi. Father was and is a Yankee fan.
Thanks. The memory fades at 76. I truly did not know the pronunciation was Jason.That part we knew from the start, from page 1 of this thread:
"Before Dominguez was born in February 2003, his father, Felix Dominguez, and his mother, Dorca Gonzalez, were trying to settle on a name. His dad had the perfect one: Jasson, like Jason Giambi. Yes, Felix Dominguez, an enormous Yankees fan, really did name his son after Jason Giambi, and, yes, that second "s" really is superfluous and it's pronounced like Jason."
Only 3 K’s so far. Has had a few tough outs. Seeing the ball incredibly well right now.Great start. Keep it going kiddo.
That ducking sucksPer Boone he has a torn UCL
Jasson Dominguez has a torn ulnar collateral ligament, Aaron Boone said.
Also per Dominguez: he felt pain Last Sunday, tried to play thru it. Then told the yankee training staff on Wednesday. But then played Thursday/Friday and Saturday..Boone said surgery has not been scheduled yet. Recovery time for a position player is 9-10 months.

Will they? Shouldn't he accumulate service time even on the IL?You guys are getting soft. A Yankee super prospect won't be able to get back until the All Star break next year when he'll be all of 21. What a tragedy! I guess I'm a little sad that they'll get to control his rights for another year in his prime. That sucks.
