More players shipped to minor league campBy
Via Bryan Hoch, the Yanks have reassigned Jesus Montero, Kyle Anson, Kevin Russo and Mark Melancon to minor league camp, while Ian Kennedy and Chris Garcia were optioned out. Kennedy is heading to Triple-A Scranton, and although there’s no official word on Garcia’s destination, Double-A Trenton seems likely. Mark Feinsand also notes that Austin Romine and Colin Curtis were also reassigned to minor league camp, and Mike Dunn was optioned down, presumably to Double-A Trenton. Following last week’s round of cuts, we also learned that Wilkins DeLaRosa and Eric Hacker were both optioned out. There just aren’t enough innings at at-bat to go around these days, and that means the season’s a comin’.
