Our man in Arizona:

Jasson Dominguez, OF, Yankees: When he signed he was considered the next Trout, maybe, or the next Franco. Now, a couple of years on, he’s physically matured to the point where he looks like a grownup. Lots of power, for sure, but there are now some questions about whether the hits will come as well. And steals appear to be off the table, though after a 2021 thickening he seemed to be in better physical shape in 2022. Maybe he’s a future star, but right now he’s looking like a solid major league regular, maybe as a center fielder with power. That’s not nothing but he probably isn’t up until 2024 at the earliest.

Jasson Dominguez , OF, Yankees: In a game that had no shortage of star performances the 19-year-old Dominguez led the way. He connected for a pair of home runs and made a tremendous diving play in center to preserve a no-hitter as Somerset took the Eastern League title. It was an impressive way for Dominguez to wrap up his 2022 regular season before he heads off to the Arizona Fall League.

Jasson Dominguez , OF, Yankees: After leaving Low-A, Dominguez has hit another gear. The teenager put together an outstanding 40-game stretch at High-A Hudson Valley before its season ended. The Yankees then moved Dominguez to Double-A Somerset for the team's final regular season week and then the postseason.

On Tuesday, with the Patriots down a game to Erie in the best-of-three Eastern League Championship Series, Dominguez launched a home run to dead center field in the second inning of his team's eventual series-tying and season-saving win. The blast was part of a 2-for-5 night.

No. 2 on the Hot Sheet at Baseball America this week.

2. Jasson Dominguez, OF, Yankees
Team: High-A Hudson Valley (South Atlantic)
Age: 19

Why He’s Here: .400/.500/.950 (8-for-20), 5 R, 0 2B, 1 3B, 3 HR, 6 RBIs, 4 BB, 4 SO, 1-for-1 SB

The Scoop: After an inconsistent turn at Low-A, Dominguez’s 40-game stretch at High-A to close the season was incredibly impressive. He finished his year with a particular flair, by homering twice in his final game—once from each side of the plate—at a pitcher’s park in Wilmington. The lost pandemic season delayed the beginning of Dominguez’s career by a season, but after his second full year as a pro he’s begun to round into the form the Yankees envisioned when they signed him in 2019.
