Yankees Rookie Jasson Domínguez Requires Tommy John Surgery

*New York – *The New York Yankees’ rookie outfielder, Jasson Domínguez, will undergo Tommy John surgery due to a torn ligament in his throwing elbow. This unfortunate injury interrupts an impressive start to his major league career, which includes the noteworthy achievement of hitting four home runs in his first seven games.

Domínguez, a highly valued 20-year-old player, was initially slated to bat third for the Yankees in Sunday’s series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers. However, approximately 15 minutes before the first pitch, he was removed from the lineup. Manager Aaron Boone later confirmed that Domínguez had undergone a scan during the game, revealing a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

As a switch-hitter, Domínguez made history on Friday by hitting a two-run homer, becoming the youngest player in over a century to achieve four home runs in his first seven games since 1901.

Since his debut on September 1st in Houston, Domínguez has showcased solid performance numbers, with a batting average of .258 and accumulating four home runs and seven RBIs across eight games. Impressively, he managed to reach base in each of his first seven games before experiencing a hitless outing on Saturday, going 0 for 4 with three strikeouts during the Yankees’ 9-2 loss to the Brewers.
