After a hot start in Low-A, Jasson Dominguez has cooled off significantly over the past few games, going hitless in five of the past seven. Dominguez went 0-for-3 with a walk for Tampa on Tuesday.

Aug. 15: Starts ninth-inning rally
Jasson Dominguez went 1-for-5 with a couple of strikeouts on Sunday for Low-A Tampa. But that one hit -- an infield single -- opened Tampa's half of the ninth and spurred a three-run rally that helped the Tarpons push the game into extra innings and prevail in the 10th.

Aug. 10: Three strikeouts in hitless game
A cancelled game and two off-days might have had Jasson Dominguez a little rusty on Tuesday, as the Yankees' top prospect went 0-for-4 with a trio of strikeouts against Clearwater. Dominguez wasn't the only notable name in the lineup, though, as Clint Frazier slotted in right behind him in the order during a rehab start, going 2-for-4. Gameday ┬╗

Aug. 4: Goes down swinging twice
Jasson Dominguez struck out in his first two at-bats during Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader for Low-A Tampa.

Aug. 1: Quiet day at the dish
