The hits keep coming.

Yankees outfielder Jasson Dominguez could miss up to eight weeks with a significant oblique strain, Aaron Boone told reporters Thursday afternoon. It’s the latest injury to a notable MLB prospect this season. At this point, healthy top prospects are outnumbered by ones who spent time on the injured list.

Dominguez made his MLB debut last September and fared well, posting a .980 OPS in eight games, until an elbow injury ended his season prematurely and required Tommy John surgery. The injury delayed Dominguez’s 2024 debut until mid-May. Dominguez has been mostly excellent, rising to No. 8 in our Top 100 Prospects while posting intriguing underlying metrics as well. Now, another sizable injury will further delay his development.

Dominguez’s injury is yet another blow to a top prospect. Six of our top 10 prospects have required an IL stint. Dylan Crews also missed time in April with a hamstring injury. Our Hot Sheet show examined the topic closely this week on YouTube.
