The Yankees optioned OF prospect Estevan Florial to their alternate training site.
The 22-year-old went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts in an extremely brief cup of coffee. Florial is still a prospect and he used to be considered a very high-end one, but his shine has faded in recent seasons.
Estevan Florial was recalled from the Yankees alternate site prior to Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Orioles.
Florial made his MLB-debut on August 28th, going 1-for-3 with a single, and was sent back down. It's unknown how long he'll be up for this time around.
Estevan Florial was recalled by the Yankees as the 29th man on their roster as they prepare to play five games over the next three days against the New York Mets.
Florial is in the lineup for Game 1, batting seventh and playing center field. It's yet to be determined how long he will remain with the club. the 22-year old is making his major league debut.
Estevan Florial will take part in the Yankees' summer camp as part of their 60-man player pool according to the team's website.
Florial was once ranked as one of the top prospects in the Yankees system, but two separate right wrist injuries have slowed his development. Don't expect to the 22-year-old outfielder to see much action in 2020.
