Yankees News: New York Calls Up Exciting Outfield Prospect Trey Amburgey
Anytime the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox square off, MLB fans everywhere usually tune in. That will especially be the case on Thursday night as this AL East rivalry is the lone game on the MLB schedule following the All-Star Break.
And for Trey Amburgey, it's the moment of a lifetime. The Yankees announced they will call up this exciting outfield prospect ahead of a four-game series with their fiercest divisional rivals.
Trey Amburgey Yankees
Amburgey isn't ranked on New York's official top-20 prospects list, but he's certainly earned his shot at the big leagues. The 27-year-old former 13th round draft pick (2015) has been absolutely raking at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. He's got some incredible pop, although he bats from the right side in a lineup dominated by right-handed hitters.
Through 37 games at Triple-A in 2021, Amburgey is slashing .307/.376/.555 with 14 doubles, 6 home runs and 34 RBIs. He also kicked off the year with an incredible 42-game on-base streak dating back to last season.
The Yankees have largely underperformed in 2021 and this could be the exact jolt of energy this team needs. Although, this could also be an MLB tryout to see if the Texas Rangers would be interested in his talents.
Regardless, the Yankees sit in fourth place in the AL East standings with their 46-43 overall record and own just +2500 odds to win the World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook.
