According to Yankees manager Aaron Boone, Jasson Dominguez, still faces a lengthy recovery due to an oblique strain sustained in mid-June. The young outfielder is currently at the team’s Tampa complex, but his activities remain limited. Prior to the injury, the Yankees prospect had been excelling at Triple-A, boasting a .389/.405/.639 slash line with two home runs and two stolen bases in nine games.

Boone mentioned that had Dominguez been healthy, the Yankees might have considered promoting him to fill in for the injured Stanton. The prospect is expected to be sidelined for approximately eight weeks.

As for veteran slugger Giancarlo Stanton, the Yankees manager expressed optimism that he could return shortly after the All-Star break. Stanton, who suffered a left hamstring strain on June 22 against the Braves, has resumed treadmill activities but has yet to start on-field work. He received a platelet-rich plasma injection on June 23 and was initially expected to miss around four weeks.

This is Stanton’s eighth stint on the injured list in the past six years. Last season, a similar hamstring injury kept him out for 43 games.

The Yankees are carefully managing these injuries as they navigate through a challenging period in their season.

Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman provided an update on pitching prospect Clayton Beeter‘s injury status at Tropicana Field on Tuesday. Cashman indicated that Beeter, who has been sidelined since mid-May, might miss the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury. A more precise timeline will be determined after the Yankees prospect’s upcoming consultation with Dr. Keith Meister.

Beeter ranked as the Yankees‘ No. 13 prospect by MLB Pipeline, had a promising start to the season. He earned a spot on the Opening Day roster and made his MLB debut against the Houston Astros on March 29, pitching a scoreless inning. After being optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Beeter excelled in the RailRiders’ rotation, posting a 2.53 ERA over seven starts before being placed on the 7-day injured list with shoulder discomfort.

The Yankees’ pitching prospects have faced challenges this season. While Beeter is sidelined, Will Warren, the team’s No. 7 prospect, has struggled in Triple-A with a 6.64 ERA in 17 starts.

  1. Every year, I keep hearing about injuries, but every year, it’s the same medical staff diagnosing, treating, & rehabbing these guys with no changes. At some point, wouldn’t different eyes maybe have different perspectives?
