Yankees' Jorbit Vivas: Lands with Yankees
The Yankees acquired Vivas and Victor Gonzalez from the Dodgers on Monday in exchange for Trey Sweeney, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.
Vivas, 22, was on the Dodgers' 40-man roster but has not yet appeared in the majors. This past season, he slashed .269/.381/.407 with 13 home runs and 25 stolen bases between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Dodgers' Jorbit Vivas: Doing it all at Double-A
Vivas is slashing .300/.404/.474 with 10 home runs, 13 steals and a 38:36 K:BB in 79 games for Double-A Tulsa.
The 22-year-old second baseman has been steady all season for the Drillers, and he could soon get a promotion to Triple-A.

Dodgers' Jorbit Vivas: Thriving in Double-A
Vivas is slashing .391/.473/.766 with four home runs, 10 doubles, a triple, 14 runs, 12 RBI and three stolen bases through 16 games with Double-A Tulsa.

The 21-year-old has started his first stint at Double-A with a 16-game hitting streak, knocking multiple hits in eight of those contests. Vivas had already flashed a strong hit tool and a sharp eye at the plate coming into 2023, hitting .286 through his first three years in the minors and consistently posting strikeout rates in the low-to-mid-teens. He had topped out at 14 homers across 477 plate appearances in 2021 but is already well above that pace with four long balls this season.... See More ... See Less

Vivas needed to be optioned rather than reassigned since he was added to the 40-man roster in November. The 22-year-old infielder spend the 2022 season with High-A Great Lakes while registering a .775 OPS with 10 homers and two stolen bases. He'll likely report to Double-A Tulsa to begin 2023....
