Player Outlook
It was quite an eventful age-20 season for The Martian. He was slow out of the gates at Double-A, logging a .685 OPS over his first 73 games. He seemingly flipped a switch in early July, slashing .372/.442/.557 with five home runs, 15 doubles, 18 steals on 22 attempts and a 17.3 K% in 44 games across Double-A and Triple-A before getting the call at the end of August. Jasson Dominguez took Justin Verlander deep on his first swing as a big leaguer and tallied four home runs and one steal in his first eight games before suffering a torn UCL that required Tommy John surgery. This is where things get murky. The Yankees are saying Dominguez will require 9-to-10 months to recover, putting his return date in the June/July range. Riley Greene underwent the same procedure at roughly the same time (mid September) and is expected to be ready for Opening Day, although unlike Dominguez, Greene's surgery was on his non-throwing elbow. Bryce Harper made it back as a first baseman in less than six months after undergoing the procedure on his throwing elbow in November of 2022. It may indeed cost Dominguez the first half of 2024 if New York will not bring him back as anything other than a center fielder, but it's possible he will be ready to hit in games as early as Opening Day. He hit third in seven of his eight big-league games, which is an excellent indicator of how he will be used when he returns to the Yankees lineup. Dominguez has the tools to go 15-15, even in a half season.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Playing games soon

    Dominguez (oblique) took live batting practice Monday in Tampa Bay and is expected to join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to play in games "within a week," Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Dominguez sustained a strained left oblique in mid-June and was expected to miss up to eight weeks. However, he's ahead of schedule and will return before August. Still, it's likely that Dominguez will be eased into action. The 21-year-old outfielder has a 1.044 OPS in 37 plate appearances with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season and could be a candidate to join the Yankees later in the season.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Remains far off from return

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Dominguez (oblique) "still has got a ways to go" before he's ready to resume playing, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Boone's comments aren't surprising, given that the skipper previously indicated Dominguez would be out up to eight weeks after he was diagnosed with an oblique strain in mid-June. Dominguez is currently at the Yankees' training complex in Tampa but hasn't been able to do much, according to Boone. He had been impressing at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to suffering the injury, slashing .389/.405/.639 with two home runs, three RBI and two stolen bases through nine games.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Out eight weeks at Triple-A

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Dominguez will be out for up to eight weeks at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to a "significant" left oblique strain, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. Boone labeled Dominguez's oblique strain as "moderate" Wednesday, but the injury now appears to be more severe than the Yankees initially believed. The 21-year-old outfielder already missed the first two-plus months of the Triple-A season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, and an eight-week return timeline will keep him out of action until at least mid-August.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Nursing moderate oblique strain

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that Dominguez is dealing with a moderate left oblique strain, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Dominguez was injured on a check swing Saturday while playing for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Yankees haven't yet established a timeline for Dominguez's return to game action, but it wouldn't be a surprise if a moderate oblique strain resulted in at least a month-long absence. Dominguez began the season on the Yankees' 60-day injured list as he continued his recovery from Tommy John surgery. He's hit .389/.405/.639 with two home runs in nine games during his time with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Dealing with oblique strain

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Dominguez has been diagnosed with a left oblique strain, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. Dominguez suffered the injury on a check swing over the weekend while playing at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The severity of the strain isn't known yet, but even a low-grade strain will likely cost the young outfielder multiple weeks of action. Dominguez has hit .389/.405/.639 with two home runs in nine games during his time with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Placed on IL at Triple-A

    Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre placed Dominguez on its 7-day injured list Sunday with what Yankees manager Aaron Boone termed as a left side injury, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The 21-year-old was formally activated from the Yankees' 60-day injured list earlier this week after a long recovery from Tommy John surgery and was subsequently optioned down to Triple-A. Over nine games at Triple-A thus far, Dominguez hasn't taken long to settle into a groove at the plate, as he was slashing .389/.405/.639 with five extra-base hits and two stolen bases prior to being deactivated. The extent of Dominguez's side injury isn't fully known yet, with Boone noting that the young outfielder is set to undergo further testing.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Early exit not related to Soto

    Dominguez (elbow) exited in the eighth inning of Thursday's rehab game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but the departure was unrelated to the injury sustained by Juan Soto (forearm), Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. Dominguez's removal was planned, as he has yet to play a full game on his rehab assignment as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. Of course, it's still possible Dominguez could replace Soto on the big-league roster should the latter miss time. Soto is set to undergo imaging on his left forearm Friday, and the results will dictate how the Yankees proceed. Dominguez is slashing .339/.397/.581 with four home runs over 68 plate appearances covering 17 rehab contests.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Continuing rehab at Triple-A

    Dominguez's (elbow) rehab assignment was extended an additional 10 days and will continue at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the Yankees announced Tuesday. Dominguez will make another step in his recovery from Tommy John surgery he underwent last September, bumping his rehab assignment up to the Triple-A level. He's already appeared in 14 minor-league games split across Double-A Somerset and Single-A Tampa, and Dominguez will likely require a handful more at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before being activated. Even when cleared, Dominguez will have a tough time cracking New York's active roster considering its abundance of outfield talent.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Playing outfield in rehab game

    Dominguez (elbow) will start in center field and bat second for Double-A Somerset in a rehab game Wednesday versus Bowie. Dominguez already has 10 rehab games under his belt, but Wednesday will mark the first time that he's started in center field since he underwent Tommy John surgery last September. The 21-year-old's ability to play the outfield likely signals that he's completed his throwing program, but Dominguez is still likely to remain on his rehab assignment for the full 20-day window or close to it. The Yankees don't have an everyday role available in the outfield for Dominguez at the moment, so he'll likely be optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's reinstated from the 60-day injured list.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Moving rehab to Double-A

    The Yankees transferred Dominguez's (elbow) rehab assignment to Double-A Somerset on Tuesday. The 21-year-old began the rehab stint with Single-A Tampa last week and will move up to Somerset after going 5-for-13 with a double and four walks in four games. Dominguez is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he completes the rehab assignment since there's no opening for him in New York's current outfield alignment.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Likely to be optioned after rehab

    Dominguez (elbow) is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's activated from the 60-day injured list after his 20-day rehab window concludes, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Dominguez began a rehab assignment with Single-A Tampa on Tuesday as he comes back from Tommy John surgery. He will serve as the designated hitter for 10-to-14 days before eventually playing the outfield. The 21-year-old needs time to knock some rust off since he went eight months without playing games, so he'll likely need longer than the 20-day rehab allotment before he becomes an option for the Yankees. Additionally, the Yankees are happy with their current outfield situation, so there's not room for Dominguez to take on a regular role right now, barring injury. Dominguez is still a worthy stash in fantasy leagues given his upside, but it's possible it might not be until 2025 that he gets another extended run with the big club.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Beginning rehab assignment Tuesday

    Dominguez (elbow) will start his rehab assignment with Single-A Tampa on Tuesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.comh reports. Yankees manager Aaron Boone noted Saturday that Dominguez will be the DH for the first two weeks of the assignment. Dominguez has continued to progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, and he can spend a maximum of 20 days on his rehab assignment before the Yankees will have to activate him. Dominguez could then be optioned for additional time to knock off the rust.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Nearing rehab assignment

    Manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Dominguez (elbow) is "inside two weeks" to begin a rehab assignment, Chris Kirschner of The Athleticreports. The 21-year-old's rehab from Tommy John surgery has apparently been progressing nicely, and he's close to being cleared for game action. Dominguez will require a lengthy rehab assignment before being reinstated, but he appears on track to return before the All-Star break.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Increases throwing distance

    Dominguez (elbow) has been throwing from 120 feet, per MLB.com. Dominguez continues to make progress in his recovery from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last September. In addition to throwing, the 21-year-old has has been taking swings from both sides of the plate, and Yankees manager Aaron Boone said earlier in the week that the young slugger is "doing really well." Should he continue to move forward without issues, Dominguez could play in a minor-league rehab game by the end of April.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Slated to play catch soon

    Dominguez (elbow) is scheduled to play catch soon and expected to begin swinging a bat before the end of spring training, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Dominguez has already been shagging fly balls as he works his way back from late-September Tommy John surgery. The Yankees are offering only the rough timetable of "summer" for the young outfielder's projected return at this point, with more clarity on that front available likely after Opening Day.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Not guaranteed CF job post-recovery

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Dominguez (elbow) is not guaranteed to immediately step in as the team's starting center fielder when he returns to full health, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Dominguez debuted with New York this past September and posted a robust .980 OPS with four home runs across his first eight major-league games before requiring Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery just a few weeks later. He projects to be recovered from that procedure around the middle of the 2024 campaign, but the 20-year-old rising star may spend a bit more time in the minors beyond the typical rehab assignment.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Set for UCL surgery Wednesday

    Dominguez will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair the torn UCL in his right elbow, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports. It won't be known until the operation whether Dominguez will require Tommy John surgery, an internal brace procedure or a combination of the two. Either way, the expected recovery time is 9-to-10 months, which means the young outfielder is likely to be sidelined until around midseason of 2024.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Likely to miss first half of 2024

    Dominguez is likely to miss the first half of the 2024 season after being diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The recovery from Tommy John surgery for position players isn't as long as it is for pitchers, but Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Dominguez's recovery will likely take 9-10 months. That suggests a return around the All-Star break of next season would be a best-case scenario for the young outfielder. The 20-year-old Dominguez made a great first impression in the big leagues, batting .258 with four home runs, a double, seven RBI, six runs and a steal over eight games.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Scratched with elbow inflammation

    Dominguez was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Brewers due to right elbow inflammation. It's unclear when the injury cropped up for Dominguez, who has started all eight games in center field since being called up by the Yankees on Sept. 1. The 20-year-old could be headed for medical imaging, and the organization is likely to be cautious with its top prospect amid the closing stretch of a lost season. Isiah Kiner-Falefa replaced him in center field Sunday.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Batting third again in home debut

    Dominguez is starting in center field and batting third in Tuesday's game versus the Tigers. Dominguez batted fifth in his major-league debut but has now been in the No. 3 spot for each of his next three games. The rookie has picked up one hit in each contest thus far, including a pair of home runs. Dominguez and his teammates will face Alex Faedo in Tuesday's contest.
