Rest in Peace Alexander Figueredo

This is not exactly the way we wanted to start out our day but I am just reading about the 20-year old left-handed Yankees pitching prospect that was killed on November 27th. His name was Alexander Figueredo and he was in his native Venezuela when he was shot and killed.

Figueredo is not a name that likely many of us know unfortunately as he never made it above the Dominican Summer League and missed the entire 2016 season due to injury. Figueredo was on the suspended/restricted list at the time of his death according to Yankees sources but no details were given that I have found yet.

At 18-years old Figueredo went 5-0 in the DSL with a 1.89 ERA in 12 games, 11 of them starts. Figueredo was 20-years old. Rest in peace.
