Amburgey has moved through the Yankees farm system, starting in the Gulf Coast League and the Staten Island Yankees (Low-A) in 2015 where he batted a combined .346, with five home runs and 30 RBIs in 58 games.

Last season he started the season with the Charleston RiverDogs (Class-A Full Season) and in 16 games batted .281. After a hamstring injury sent him to the DL in last April, he was sent to the GCL for rehab, then joined the Tampa Yankees (Class-A+) on July 4th. With Tampa, he played in 47 games and batted .279.

This season, he started with Tampa and even though his batting average is down, he has shown power as he has 12 home runs and 43 RBIs through 77 games.

Over the last week, spanning July 3-9, the Lake Worth, Florida native showed some of that power, hitting three dingers, while driving in seven runs. In back-to-back games on July 6-7, Amburgey hit a home run and drove in two runs in each. During the week, he batted .346 (9 for 26), and enjoyed a six game hitting streak, which was stopped on Sunday. Over his last 10 games, he has hit safely in seven of the 10, and has four multi-hit games in the span.

Congratulations to Trey Amburgey for being named Legends on Deck’s Florida State Player of the Week for July 3-9.
