Where Yankees’ top prospect Estevan Florial goes from here

Yankees top prospect Estevan Florial only has to look down the dugout to face his cautionary tale. It’s as old as baseball: five-tool phenom is labeled the best player in a system only to have his dream squashed by injuries.

Florial’s High-A Tampa manager Aaron Holbert knows a little bit about that.

“I was a guy that was often injured and it’s tough,” says Holbert, the first-year Tarpons manager. “It’s tough, year after year, you set goals for yourself, you have an idea of where you want to end up.”

And then all of a sudden the injured list comes calling.
