It has been one year since Hal Steinbrenner pointed to the duo of Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza, identifying the fast-rising prospects as the Yankees’ “middle infield for many years to come.” This spring has presented an opportunity to test-drive that plan in big league camp, and the club’s managing general partner loves what he is seeing.

Volpe, outfielder Jasson Domínguez and Peraza -- the club’s Nos. 1, 2 and 3 prospects, per MLB Pipeline -- have fit in seamlessly, each offering enticing glimpses of a future in the Bronx. Volpe’s spring performance will prompt Steinbrenner, general manager Brian Cashman and manager Aaron Boone to consider carrying the 21-year-old on the Yankees’ Opening Day roster.

“We knew it was going to be exciting,” Steinbrenner said. “It’s just great to see all of our young kids playing well, including Domínguez, who’s looked good this spring. The reality is, when we’ve got young prospects that are ready and deserving of a chance, they’re going to get it, just like [Aaron] Judge did all those years ago.”
