Domingo Acevedo's Major League debut will have to wait. Just hours after calling him up, the Yankees have sent their No. 7 prospect back down to Double-A Trenton.

The Yankees promoted Acevedo ahead of Saturday's game against the Mets, but did not deploy him in the game. The team announced his demotion after the conclusion of the game.

Acevedo, 24, has a 2.84 ERA over 11 appearances for Trenton this season (eight starts). In 50 1/3 innings pitched, Acevedo has 40 strikeouts, eight walks and a 1.13 WHIP. He hasn't pitched in Triple-A this season, though he did in 2017, when he accumulated a 4.38 ERA across 12 1/3 innings pitched.

Acevedo's fastball sits in the mid-to-high 90s, and he touched triple digits a few years ago. The 6-foot-7 righty also throws a high-80s changeup and mid-80s slider.

When Yankees No. 7 prospect RHP Domingo Acevedo was unwinding after a Double-A game, he got a knock at his hotel room door.

It was Trenton Thunder manager Jay Bell.

"I saw the manager, and I said, 'What happened? The manager is in my room,'" Acevedo said, via MLB.com's Amanda Bell. "The next thing I see is the pitching coach, and the manager said, 'I need a translator, your teammate.' So he [told my teammate I was getting called up], and I said, 'Oh, seriously?' and he said, 'Oh, yes, congrats.' I don't know, I started laughing and gave a big hug to my pitching coach and a little cry. I said, 'I need to call my mom.'"

The Yankees have called up No. 7 prospect RHP Domingo Acevedo from Double-A ahead of their game Saturday against the Mets.

ESPN's Keith Law ranked the Yankees' farm system as No. 2 in baseball after he ranked five Yankees prospects in his top 100 list.

Despite trading several big prospects away during last season's trade deadline, the Yankees maintained their No. 2 ranking from last year by keeping their most valuable prospects, including infielder Gleyber Torres.

Torres, 21, was ranked fifth on Law's list, sixth by Baseball America and MLB.com's No. 1 shortstop prospect. Though he has spent most of his career as a shortstop, he is expected to compete for a spot at either second base or third base on the Yankees' Opening Day roster.
