Yankees' Everson Pereira: Back on IL at Double-A
Pereira was placed on the 7-day injured list with an undisclosed injury Tuesday at Double-A Somerset.
Pereira hasn't played in a week and it seems like his season is likely over. The 21-year-old outfielder hit .283/.341/.504 with five home runs and a 37:9 K:BB in 29 games at Double-A.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Everson Pereira: Healthy again at Double-A
Pereira (undisclosed) has gone 3-for-16 with a triple, a walk, two RBI and two runs in four games since returning to Double-A Somerset's lineup Friday.
Pereira was withheld from the starting nine for just under two weeks due to an unspecified issue, but Somerset never placed him on its 7-day injured list. The 21-year-old has gotten off to a slow start at Double-A since receiving a promotion from High-A Hudson Valley, as he's slashing .226/.293/.321 with a 37.9 percent strikeout rate in his first 13 games with Somerset....

Yankees' Everson Pereira: Working back from injury
Pereira hasn't played for Double-A Somerset since July 30 due to an unspecified injury, Mike Ashmore of the Somerville Courier News reports.
Somerset initially described Pereira's removal from the July 30 game as being related to cramps, but his absence from the lineup for more than a week suggests the 21-year-old is working through an injury. Fortunately, Pereira's injury is more of a day-to-day than a long-term situation, as Ashmore relays that the outfield prospect has resumed on-field work. Pereira is slashing .243/.317/.324 through his first nine games at Somerset since getting a July 13 call-up from High-A Hudson Valley.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Everson Pereira: Moves up to Double-A
Pereira was promoted to Double-A Somerset on Wednesday, Matt Kardos of MLB.com reports.
Pereira showcased his potential at High-A Hudson Valley to begin the regular season. Although his power numbers were slightly down early in 2022, he'll be rewarded with a promotion to test his skills against a higher level of competition. He appeared in 73 games at Hudson Valley this year and slashed .274/.354/.455 with nine homers, 55 runs, 43 RBI and 19 runs.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Everson Pereira: Steady stick in High-A
Pereira is hitting .307/.388/.413 with a homer and eight steals on 12 attempts across 19 games for High-A Hudson Valley.
The 21-year-old outfielder has already attempted as many steals this year as he did all of last season (49 games), which is perhaps unsurprising because his power stroke hasn't shown up yet. This is a kid who impressively slugged 20 homers last year, with 14 of them coming in 27 High-A games, so it's a little curious that he's not doing so thus far this season. In fact, he has only one extra-base knock across the last 13 games, though a steady flow of singles has buoyed his numbers. The Yankees will probably wait for his home-run-hitting ability to reemerge before they bump him up to Double-A.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Everson Pereira: Protected from Rule 5 draft
Pereira was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster Friday.
Pereira's 2021 season went about as good as it possibly could have. He was promoted to Low-A after three games at the complex level and went on to notch a 195 wRC+ and 159 wRC+ at Low-A and High-A, respectively. His hard-hit rates back up the success he had, but he will need to cut down on the strikeouts as he moves up the ladder. He struck out 61 times in just 221 plate appearances last season....

Yankees' Everson Pereira: Held back in extended ST
Pereira is being held back in extended spring training until he can be sent to a short-season league in June, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.
The Yankees were very aggressive in assigning Pereira to the Appalachian League as a 17-year-old last year, and while he held his own, he didn't perform well enough to earn an assignment to Low-A to start this season. He will likely be sent to the New York-Penn League, but could get a taste of Low-A before the end of the year.... See More ... See Less
