Weekly Check In: Jorge Mateo

Jorge Mateo, one of the four untouchable Yankees prospects at this season’s trading deadline, has been stellar this season to say the least. His bat is light years ahead of what it was at this point in 2014 and his stolen base totals are going through the roof with every passing game. Mateo has run and hit his way onto the top of most every Yankees prospects list and has also run his way all the way to the High-A Tampa Yankees after being promoted from the Low-A Charleston Riverdogs.

Mateo has a very outside shot at stealing over 100 bases combined this season between his time in Charleston and Tampa, although he would really have to pick up the pace in order to do so, and at one point this season had an outside shot at chasing down Billy Hamilton’s all-time stolen base record for a single season in Minor League Baseball. While the stolen base record would have been nice a fully, healthy and productive season will have to do for Mateo.

Congratulations on the call up Jorge and keep up the outstanding work!
