The ailing Yankees promote top prospects Everson Pereira, Oswald Peraza: Report

Scarce options and little time Yanks promote two of their best talents.

The team will add an outfielder Everson Pereira and infielders Oswald Peraza to the major league roster before starting a streak with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, after Jack Curry from YES Network.

Friday marked the first day teams can call prospects without accumulating 45 days of major league service and losing their rookie eligibility in 2024. However, the Yankees waited until they were defeated at home by the Red Sox to call their youth.

Accordingly, the 22-year-old Pereira is the third best candidate for the Yankees The Venezuelan, who has been with the organization since he was 17, is ranked 80th in all of baseball.

The hard-hitting Pereira has walked less since his promotion to Triple-A as his walk rate has dropped from 10.3% to 8.2%. His strikeout rate, meanwhile, has dropped slightly from 29.2% to 27.8%, although that's still a high number.

Pereira has played all three outfield positions without a single mistake this season, although the Yankees still view his defense as unfinished. Left field was a problem for the Bombers on both sides of the ball; Expect Pereira to spend most of his time there.

Peraza, who started the season as the Yankees' No. 3, had some time at the MLB level this year after losing the first shortstop fight to Anthony Volpe in spring training. However, it was difficult for Peraza to achieve consistent playing time. The 23-year-old has cut .173/.328/.192 in 19 games at the majors this season.

At Triple-A, the results were better, where Peraza cut .268/.357/.479 with 14 homers and 36 RBI in 63 games for the RailRiders.

The Yankees decided to promote two of their best youngsters after the team's record fell below .500 at 2:10. The team is in the middle of an eight-game losing streak.

With 38 games left in the season, the Yankees are now nine games away from the last wildcard spot occupied by the Seattle Mariners. Division rivals Blue Jays are just half a game behind. The Red Sox (3 GB) also lead the Yankees in the table, putting an end to it Three-game sweep over the weekend the potentially final nail in the pinstripe coffin this season.

With the Yankees failing to gain ground over the weekend, it wouldn't be a surprise if the team added more youngsters to its roster. If the tables remain as they are, the organization must start looking at other possible options for 2024.

While Pereira and Peraza are on their way to the Majors, the organization's second-best contender, Jasson Domínguez, will be promoted to the Triple-A, according to the report Athletic's Brendan Kuty. The Martian has been in overdrive since July 1, slicing .333/.401/.494 with five homers and 29 RBI in 42 games. Domínguez is now one step closer to the Majors.
