Gotta love a few things in Yankeeland. For one, the Yankees are slowly climbing up the division into second place, just 3 games out to the Red Sox. That's a great thing. It took a while to get there, but we are seeing progress and it's wonderful. 

Secondly, can we talk about Estevan Florial right now? The kid's an animal!

Inside the Pinstripes write:

"Estevan Florial has four home runs in his first six games with the Double-A Somerset Patriots...

In six games with the Somerset Patriots—New York's Double-A affiliate—Florial is hitting .318/.400/.955 with four home runs. He has seven base hits in 22 at-bats with five runs, two doubles and six RBI."

Sometimes players just see the ball really well.  Sometimes they play higher than they're expected to play and sometimes they play like they're supposed to. Right now Florial is superhuman and we should all tip our cap!

Gotta love when the Yankee farm system works in our favor. Looking forward to the future.

  1. 6 games is a very small sample size. For most players 6 games is a mere tiny streak.
    That being said- We're all hoping to see Florial in the Bronx asap. I only hope he stays healthy and makes the Yankees roster soon. But I have a feeling as slow as Florial's progress is coming, we may not see him dethrone Hicks in CF, not in the near future.

    The real question is: will The Martian, Dominguez pass Florial on his way up to the Bronx.
