For the third consecutive season a new face will be at the top set of the Double-A Somerset Patriots dugout after the New York Yankees appointed Raul Dominguez to manager.

Dominguez has spent the past 17 years in the Yankees organization; the last two years he was a defensive coach at Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre.

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to spend my 17th season with the Yankees organization in the minor leagues,” said Dominguez. “I’m also excited to be the manager of the Somerset Patriots. I have heard many great things about Somerset, the ballpark facilities, the community and their fans. I look forward to the 2023 season and helping to develop our players for the Yankees and Major League Baseball.”

Dominguez takes over for Dan Fiorito who led the Patriots to the Eastern League title, and was named Manager of the Year in the Eastern League.

Dominguez is the fifth manager in Somerset Patriots history, and third since the Patriots became the Yankees Double-A affiliate.

Dominguez has managerial experience — all in the Yankees system — having managed the GCL Yankees East (2016), DSL Yankees 1 (2011-15) and DSL Yankees 2 (2009-10). Overall, Dominguez’s managerial record is 308-240 (a .562 winning percentage).
