July 11: Futures Game 'awesome experience' for Dominguez
Jasson Dominguez is 18 years old, still has braces and has played in just seven games in Rookie ball, but he’s already one of the most talked about prospects in the Minor Leagues.

The Yankees’ top prospect played in Sunday’s SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and playing four innings in center field. He also flashed some “The Martian” cleats and gloves, aligning with his nickname. But while he didn’t have much success at the plate, the experience of being around other top players served valuable.

“It was an awesome experience,” Dominguez said in Spanish. “At first, I was honestly pretty excited and anxious. But then once I calmed down, I learned a lot from the rest of the guys.”

One player in particular that Dominguez was excited to meet was Mariners outfield prospect Julio Rodríguez. Dominguez and Rodríguez talked throughout the game and Rodríguez shared some knowledge with the younger Dominican outfielder.

“I knew who he was, but I never got a chance to really meet him in person,” Dominguez said. “But we talked today and he’s just a really good person.”

He raised his batting average significantly from .133 to start the day to .200 and kept his OBP high at .407. Gameday »

Jasson Dominguez recorded his first two professional hits earlier in the week, but faltered Thursday afternoon with an 0-for-4 performance that featured two strikeouts.

Gameday »

July 5: Dominguez gets on the board
Yankees top prospect Jasson Dominguez notched his first hit in pro ball with a single in FCL action. The 18-year-old outfielder also stole his first base and added a walk, his sixth in four games, in a 1-for-3 day at the dish.

June 30: Dominguez continues strange start
Three games into his professional debut, New York Yankees top prospect Jasson Dominguez continues to make an impact despite having not yet recorded his first career hit. The 18-year-old outfielder went 0-for-2 during Wednesday afternoon's seven-inning game but added a pair of walks and a trio of runs scored to fill the box score in his third Minor League game.

June 28: Dominguez makes pro debut
The wait is over. MLB Pipeline's No. 24 overall prospect, Jasson Dominguez, made his professional debut on Opening Day in the Florida Complex League on Monday. The switch-hitting outfielder went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in his first game in the FCL (previously known as the Gulf Coast League) nearly two years after signing for $5.1 million out of the Dominican Republic.

His five tools -- each of which receives at least above-average 55 grades on the 20-80 scouting scale -- make him the most exciting prospect to open 2021 on a complex and could make the 18-year-old a star early in his Minor League career. Gameday »

May 12: Dominguez back in action
While he still hasn't made his professional debut, Jasson Dominguez is putting his sweet swing in display at the Yankees' Minor League complex.

April 28: Is the Yankees farm on rise?
The 18-year-old, switch-hitting outfielder has all the tools of a Top 10 overall prospect, namely the plus power and 65-grade speed. Jasson Dominguez just hasn’t played in the Minors yet at any level. Putting those skills on display at Low-A Tampa would lock him in as one of the game’s brightest young talents, and that alone would make the Yankees a must-follow system in 2022. More »

April 12: Scouting report
Introduced to the New York organization at an early age, Dominguez was put on the Yankees radar by international scouting director Donny Rowland, assistant scouting director Edgar Mateo and other staff in the Dominican Republic.

“I’ve known J.D. since he was 13 and he’s been working out two or three times a day since he was a kid,” Mateo told MLB.com. “He’s relentless, just unstoppable and then he has God-given tools that separate him. He also understands that it’s a process and he’s a long way from the big leagues. He knows there’s a lot to be done before his mission is accomplished, and that’s why he works so hard.” More »
