  • Star of the Game: Andrew Velazquez – 3-for-5, 2 home runs (6), 3 RBI, 3 runs scored, 1 stolen base. The Bronx native and ten-year vet, never known for power, went deep twice in a game for the first time in his professional career

  • Carlos Gomez: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 34 pitches (17 strikes). Gomez had a quick one-game cameo in Tampa back in 2019 when the Tarpons were a High-A team. Other than that, Friday was his only game above the rookie level

FCL Yankees (13-4): The Yankees’ matchup with the Phillies was cancelled. No reason or plan for rescheduling has been announced.
