Headlines from New York City aren't very positive these days. Shootings, unprovoked subway attacks, rats and despair fill the Big Apple media front pages on a daily basis. Even the New York sports world received an expected blow on Friday when Jacob deGrom left the Mets without so-much a goodbye. So, when Jon Heyman from nypost.com incorrectly tweeted on Tuesday that Aaron Judge had split from the Bronx to San Francisco, it felt like Gotham lost Batman for a better deal in another city.
With Yankees fans impatiently waiting to see when their homegrown modern-day Babe Ruth, Aaron Judge, is going to sign a contract, one that will hopefully that will keep him in pinstripes for the rest of his career, another Bomber prodigy is waiting in the wings or the minors for his shot. Yankees' prospect Jasson Domínguez, nicknamed "El Marciaon" or "The Martian" because of his amazing 5-tool abilities, just finished his Arizona Fall league season and is getting closer to the Bronx.
New York Yankees fans can start to get excited. According to reports #99 indeed appears to be returning to the Bronx for a very long time. It also appears that Hal Steinbrenner was true to his word that the Pinstripes weren't going to let money get in the way of bringing the home run champion back home.
After the 2022 season, manager Don Mattingly parted ways with the Miami Marlins after seven seasons at the helm. Immediately following his departure from the sunshine state's southernmost MLB team, there was speculation that Mattingly may be reunited with the New York Yankees, in some capacity. However on Tuesday, Mattingly joined a Major League Baseball writer's podcast and indicated that he may be returning to the American League East but it may not be the Yankees.
