    Abreu Solid in AFL Debut for Scottsdale

    One night after southpaw Justus Sheffield tossed five scoreless innings in the AFL season opener, Yankees prospect Albert Abreu toed the rubber for Scottsdale against the Mesa Solar Sox.

    The 22-year old Abreu was a late addition to the AFL roster after taking the place of Dillon Tate and he turned in a solid debut for the Scorpions. The right-hander, ranked as seventh ranked prospect in the organization according to MLB Pipeline, tossed five innings and allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk with three strikeouts in a 9-4 Scottsdale defeat.

    Yankees infield prospect Kyle Holder, a 2015 first-round draft selection, went 1-for-3 with an RBI single out of the ninth spot in the batting order in his AFL debut.
