Via Bryan Hoch, the Yankees sent Eduardo Nunez, Reegie Corona, Jorge Vazquez, and Brandon Laird across the street to minor league camp earlier today. The send downs of Nunez and Corona are significant, because it leaves only Kevin Russo as competition for Ramiro Pena and the utility infielder’s spot. Russo is pounded the ball in camp, but he can’t match Pena’s defensive wizardry, and there’s something to be said for being the incumbent. I’ll be surprised if someone besides Ramiro heads north as the backup infielder, barring injury.
