Here’s your weekly update on what your favorite Yankees have been doing on social media!

Andrew Velazquez posts note from his younger self

Velazquez’s backstory of his Bronx upbringing has become common knowledge as he’s embraced the role of the “hometown kid.” Well, his story goes even further. The infielder posted what seems to be homework from when he was just learning how to write. He was tasked to write five sentences about a job he wants when he grows up. Of course, he wrote about playing for the Yankees.

Both players are coming off of pretty recent IL stints and are happy to be back on the team. Urshela has struggled a bit since the beginning of September, but will look to contribute to the team as they push for the postseason. King has a 1.13 ERA in his eight innings since coming off of the IL.
