Description: After going 2-for-5 in his first start as the Yankees No. 2 hitter, outfielder Zoilo Almonte will get another opportunity on Monday night.
Insight: MLB.com ranked Almonte No. 10 overall among Yankees' prospects this season, but he's playing like a veteran batting .293 with a home run, eight RBI and three stolen bases without getting caught in 18 games. With Robinson Cano batting behind him, Zlmonte should see some good pitches to hit.

Description: Yankees outfielder Zoilo Almonte went 3-for-4 and hit his first big league homer Friday against the Rays.
Insight: MLB.com ranked Almonte No. 10 overall among Yankees' prospects this season. The 24-year-old was just called up this week after hitting .297 with six homers and a .789 OPS in 68 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. He could end up pushing the struggling Vernon Wells for playing time if he makes a big splash.
