There’s positive news on the injury front for the Yankees as both Jasson Dominguez and DJ LeMahieu are making significant strides toward a return to action.

According to reports from MLB.com, highly-touted prospect Dominguez has been steadily ramping up his throwing program, now reaching distances of 120 feet. This signifies notable progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery last September. Furthermore, the 21-year-old phenom is also taking swings from both sides of the plate, indicating positive overall progress. Yankees manager Aaron Boone expressed his satisfaction with Dominguez’s recovery earlier this week. If he continues on this trajectory without any setbacks, Dominguez could potentially participate in a minor-league rehab game by the end of April.

LeMahieu starts groundball but Yankees return undecided

Meanwhile, veteran infielder DJ LeMahieu is also showing encouraging signs of improvement. According to Newsday’s David Lennon, LeMahieu took ground balls at third base on Sunday. However, he’s still experiencing limitations in his lateral movement due to the non-displaced fracture in his right foot. While LeMahieu has been able to participate in on-field batting practice and fielding drills, regaining full movement remains a key factor before he can be considered game-ready.
