Looking for a spark, the slumping New York Yankees called up top outfield prospect Estevan Florial on Wednesday, per multiple reports.

The Yankees still lead the American League East by nine games entering Wednesday but are just 8-17 since the All-Star break.

Florial, 24, is batting .286 with 14 homers, 39 RBIs and 32 steals in 89 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.

He appeared in four games with the Yankees in May, going 0-for-11 at the plate with four strikeouts.

Over the past three seasons, he is hitting .206 with one homer, two RBIs and two stolen bases in 16 games with the Yankees.
