WATCH: Yankees prospect Jasson Dominguez homers in first career plate appearance


Top Yankees possibility Jasson Dominguez was called prior to Friday’s video game versus the Astros and placed into the lineup for his MLB launching. He was entrusted with dealing with future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander. Let’s simply state he was prepared. This is the very first swing he ever took in a major-league video game: 

The household shots after those are constantly so cool which definitely didn’t dissatisfy. There’s a bit more on this emphasize: 

Dominguez is just twenty years old. At twenty years and 206 days, he’s the youngest gamer in Yankees history to homer in his launching and he’s the youngest Yankees gamer, duration, to strike a crowning achievement because Bobby Murcer went deep at age 19 in 1965. The last Yankees gamer to homer in his very first profession at-bat was — this’ll shock you — Aaron Judge on Aug. 13, 2016.

Dominguez, now nicknamed “The Martian,” signed with the Yankees for $5 million out of the Dominican Republic numerous years back and was tossed some unjust contrasts while doing so. We’ll simply state that he’s been greatly hyped for several years. In 118 video games in between Double-A and Triple-A this season, he struck .265/.377/.425 with 15 homers and 40 taken bases. 

Before the video game Friday, Yankees supervisor Aaron Boone showed that Dominguez is now the Yankees’ daily center fielder. Given that Harrison Bader is chosen Cincinnati and the Yankees aren’t competitors, it makes all the sense worldwide to simply stick the kid out there and let him establish for a month at the big-league level. 

He got his profession off to rather a start on Friday.
