(WTNH)– Few prospects in the Yankees system are as highly touted as Estevan Florial.
Florial got off to a red hot start for the Yankees Double-A affiliate in Somerset, New Jersey. The 23-year-old flashing plenty of early-season power. He led off three of his first six games with a home run for Somerset.
The Yankees hoping that lefty bat can one day soon be a fixture in the Bombers line-up. Florial has been a regular at spring training the last few years. His development slowed last year with no minor league baseball played so it seems like he’s making up for lost time.
