Dermis Garcia Opening Eyes in Rookie Ball

In 2014, the Yankees blew away the competition with their enormous international free agent spending spree.  The top prize of that spree was 16-year-old Dermis Garcia, a 16 year old Short Stop and native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Garcia made his debut in 2015 short-season ball as a 17-year-old, playing 69 games and batting just .159 with 2 extra-base hits, both doubles.  This year, though, it has clicked.

Garcia has homered in four straight games and through 72 at-bats in 22 games, he is batting .264 with 10 home runs and 15 RBI.  He also has a .386 on-base percentage.

He has yet to steal a base, and has struck out in 32 of his 72 at-bats against 13 walks.

Most scouts believe he will ultimately shift to Third Base or a corner outfield spot. He is definitely a prospect to keep your eye on.
