Jorge Vazquez is headed to Triple-A today, and, to the Yankees soon after that? Via Donnie Collins -
Josh Norris of The Trentonian is reporting that Jorge Vazquez will be promoted to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for tomorrow’s game against Indianapolis.
In 10 games since coming off the disabled list, Vazquez was hitting .390 with six RBIs at Double-A Trenton.
You’ll remember that Vazquez was initially slated to open the season with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. But, he needed an appendectomy late in spring training, and it set him back nearly two months. The Yankees lineup sure could use him.
Here are the numbers on Vazquez to date:
|2000||18||Mexico City Tigers||MEX||41||71||2||2||9||0||3||20||.242||.296||.364|
|2001||19||Mexico City Tigers||MEX||91||254||11||5||24||0||14||55||.284||.340||.397|
|2002||20||Mexico City Tigers||MEX||67||201||10||10||35||0||4||50||.275||.298||.487|
|2003||21||Mexico City Tigers||MEX||80||272||11||14||60||2||19||65||.279||.327||.502|
He’s played both first and third in the past. I have no idea how good he is with the leather. But, it seems like he has a clue at the plate.
