Jasson Dominguez, a New York Yankees rookie who made his MLB debut earlier

 This month, will miss the rest of the season after ripping his ulnar collateral ligament, manager Aaron Boone announced Sunday. 

Dominguez will require Tommy John surgery to restore his elbow.

Since being called up by the Yankees on September 1, the switch-hitting outfielder had been spectacular on a road trip against the Houston Astros.  

Fans had been waiting for Dominguez, dubbed "The Martian," to make his MLB debut, and he did not disappoint. 

Dominguez homered off Justin Verlander on his debut major league bat, going to the opposite field and over the tall left field wall at Houston's Minute Maid Park.

Since then, the 20-year-old has homered three times, including two at Yankee Stadium, in his debut homestand against the Detroit Tigers and Milwaukee Brewers.

Dominguez was supposed to bat third for the Yankees on Sunday, but he was pulled about 15 minutes before the first pitch. 

Boone stated Dominguez had a scan on his elbow, and the results were clear. He requires Tommy John surgery. 


The Yankees may have committed a $162 million blunder.
