Weekly Check In: Jorge Mateo

The minor league All-Star Games are over, the All-Star break is over and it is back to work as usual for everyone in Major League Baseball and the lower affiliates in the farm system. This includes the Yankees top shortstop prospect Jorge Mateo as he continues his chase at 100 stolen bases in a single season. Mateo’s pace his lowered in recent weeks, well after crossing the 50 stolen base plateau, but the batting average is on a steady rise and so are many of his offensive numbers.

The defense has never really been an issue as Mateo leads an impressive group of Yankees shortstop prospects in the lower levels including Tyler Wade, Abi Avelino and others. Mateo may not steal 100 bases but it is looking more and more likely that the 20 year old won’t be spending much more time in Charleston either. Mateo seems primed, and more importantly ready, for a promotion to Tampa.
