Jhalan Jackson with the Staten Island Yankees (Robert M. Pimpsner)


SI Yanks Notebook: Jackson Returns, Kaprielian Home Debut

The last few weeks the Staten Island Yankees have been battling through injuries to their position players but there is good news.

Starting tonight with the first of 2 double headers outfielder Jhalan Jackson will return to the Baby Bombers lineup.  His presence combined with the spectacular hitting from Trey Amburgey should create a powerful force in the middle of the order.

Yesterday Kyle Holder made his return after a sprained thumb took him out of action for a week and looked great in the field, making several great plays.  Second baseman Brandon Wagner will not need to spend time on the DL as his wrist is fine.

The big news is that the New York Yankees top pick in this year’s MLB First-Year-Player Draft, James Kaprielian, will make his first start at home this Friday against the Hudson Valley Renegades.  Kaprielian was magnificent in his Baby Bombers debut, throwing 35 pitches over 3 no-hit innings hitting as high as 96 MPH on the radar gun and demonstrating a major league changeup.

Things are looking for the Staten Island Yankees as they push forward in the final stretch of games.
