Player Profile: Zoilo Almonte

I have one card of Zoilo Almonte, from 2014 Topps Blue. 

Playing career: Zoilo Almonte came up with the Yankees in 2013 and played in 34 games, hitting .236 with 1 HR and 9 RBI.

Where he is now: He has played in 13 games for the Yankees this season, hitting .139 with 1 HR and 3 RBI. He has spent most of the season at AAA Scranton.

My memories: He hit well in his first few games with the Yankees, so I was hopeful they had something with him, but it doesn’t look like that is the case.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Zoi, between Zoids, a model kit line, and Zoidberg, a character on Futurama. There do not appear to be any other prominent Zoilo Almontes.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jeremy Bonderman.
