Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

SS Oswald Peraza

After splitting 115 games in 2021 between High-A Hudson Valley (28), Double-A Somerset (79) and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (eight), Peraza has a .246/.323/.393 slash line with 10 home runs and 29 RBI through 63 games this season as a member of the RailRiders.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman took note of Peraza this week with reporters, including NJ Advance Media, as New York began a four-game series at the Boston Red Sox.

"He's coming on," Cashman said Thursday of Peraza, the Yankees' No. 2 overall prospect. "Obviously very talented. Like a lot of our guys, struggled out of the gate early, starting to find his stride now. The defense has always been there. The offense has obviously started to emerge. He had a hell of a year last year. Started slow this year. But I think you're starting to see the bat now starting to play the way you're used to seeing it."

LHP Ken Waldichuk

The Yankees' No. 5 overall prospect and top pitcher on the farm, Waldichuk earned a May 17 promotion and Thursday assignment to the American League Futures for the 2022 MLB All-Star Futures Game -- a July 16 showcase at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

Waldichuk made his eighth start at Triple-A this past Monday, delivering a five-inning effort in which he yielded one run on four hits while striking out six and walking one.

Waldichuk lowered his Triple-A ERA to 2.52 following a June 29 debut in which he went 4 1/3 innings pitched, also yielding one run on four hits, while fanning seven and walking four.

Double-A Somerset

SS Anthony Volpe

The Yankees' top prospect has turned the corner between June and July after a slow start to the season's first two months -- something Cashman has kept tabs on. Volpe is slashing .245/.345/.444 with 11 home runs and 41 RBI in 72 games.

"He dealt with some adversity early on and fought through it," Cashman said Thursday. "Now he's finding his stride. It's all good. Looking forward to the way he goes about it, too. He's a really talented player, great makeup. His future we believe in quite bright."

C Austin Wells

The Yankees promoted Wells, the No. 4 prospect and top-ranked catcher, Tuesday to Double-A. In three games this week with Somerset, Wells went 1 for 13 and struck out six times.

Through 28 games this season at High-A Hudson Valley, though, Wells flourished. He slashed .323/.429/.576 with six home runs and 16 RBI.

High-A Hudson Valley

SS Trey Sweeney

The Yankees' No. 20 overall pick in the first round of the 2021 MLB Draft, Sweeney -- New York's No. 6 prospect -- started this season at the High-A level and is slashing .230/.320/.414 with nine home runs and 37 RBI through 60 games.

Sweeney struggled in April and May but has turned a corner since the calendar flipped to June -- from June 1 to July 8, Sweeney has slashed .276/.368/.491 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 30 games.

Low-A Tampa

CF Jasson Dominguez

After a 49-game run with the Tarpons in 2021, Dominguez -- the Yankees' No. 3 prospect and top outfielder on the farm -- has a slash line of .259/.370/.433 through 71 games this season. He has 68 hits (15 doubles, two triples) in his 263 at-bats, to go with nine home runs and 34 RBI.

Dominguez ended the week on a high note in Friday's doubleheader, going 1 -for02 with a solo shot and a walk in the nightcap. Dominguez is set to join Volpe and Waldichuk among the Yankees' contingent in the Futures Game.
