Dominguez has shown stellar qualities at the miners so far. With a decent performance in the lower A ball in 2021, Dominguez also looks set to dominate the big leagues. Dominguez hit a respectable .258 with five home runs and a .744 OPS in 49 minor league games; this despite being significantly younger than the minor leaguers around him. His offensive production was significant with a relatively low downside. He hit 31% of the time and drew walks nearly 10% of the time.

And spring training was a phenomenon. Apparently he sent a pitch at 114 mph. The average maximum exit speed for a big leaguer is 110 mph. And that doesn’t seem like an outlier in any way. He also smoked a low A-ball single at 112 mph pitch. “All the tools are there” Yankees batting coordinator Joe Migliaccio said. “He just needs to be at bat.”

The Bronx faithful are hoping he’ll deliver for them when called, but until then, let expectations grow!
