Exciting New York Yankees prospect continued the even more exciting start to his MLB career on Sunday.

Facing Astros righty Cristian Javier, “The Martian” absolutely destroyed a pitch deep to right field for a two-run homer. The blast traveled 358 feet and gave the Yankees the lead.

Jasson Dominguez now has two MLB homers since being promoted on Sept. 1. The Yankees lead the Astros 3-1 in the sixth inning.
