Estevan Florial returned to the Yankees with a bang.
Fresh off one other call-up and taking part in in his third profession recreation, the 23-year-old outfielder crushed his first profession residence run within the eighth inning of a 6-4 win over the Phillies on Tuesday evening.
The lefty hitter was promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre earlier on Tuesday after Trey Amburgey went on the 10-day injured checklist with a hamstring pressure.
“Hopefully he can take advantage of this opportunity and give us a little bit of a spark too,” supervisor Aaron Boone stated earlier than the sport.
“We certainly know what he’s capable of. Hopefully he can go out there and hold it down for us.”
Florial, who was handed over for a call-up a number of occasions prior to now week because the Yankees’ outfield continued to be depleted by accidents and COVID-19 protocols, was hitting .211 with eight residence runs and a .719 OPS in 43 video games at Triple-A.
