Where are New York Yankees top prospects starting the 2024 MLB season?

The New York Yankees are well into the regular season at the Major League level, but the 2024 season in the minor leagues is just about to begin.

Much of the focus will be on the Yankees and their 26-man roster competing for a World Series as a team with extremely high expectations. But the farm system also will play a crucial role in the success of the team as the long season begins.

When will Jasson Dominguez return?

Dominguez looked primed to be the next big thing after slugging four home runs during his first eight games with the team in September. However, a torn UCL required Tommy John surgery, ending his season. We should see Dominguez back in MLB at some point this season considering the recovery time of 9-12 months.

Spencer Jones provides hope

Jones had a strong showing during Spring Training, proving his left-handed power bat and underrated speed will be joining the Yankees’ big-league squad sooner rather than later. It may not be in 2024 for the 22-year-old, but it shouldn’t be much longer if continues to develop the way he has.
