Nine reassigned to minor league camps


On the same day we learned that the Yankees re-upped with their pre-arbitration players, we also heard of the first round of Spring Training cuts. Bryan Hoch has word of nine reassignments. Of the big names, Andrew Brackman is bound for Class A Tampa while Christian Garcia will go to Trenton and Wilkin De la Rosa will open the year in AAA. De la Rosa could very well see the Bronx later this year. Six other players — Wilkins Arias, Jeremy Bleich, Kyle Higashioka, Kei Igawa, D.J. Mitchell, Kevin Whelan — were sent to the minor league camp with no word of their ultimate assignments. At least the winningest pitcher in Scranton history will be able to improve upon his record.

      Jesus stays until he decides it’s time to let someone else have a chance. The Yankees have no choise in the matter.

    Hmm.. If De La Rosa stays in Scranton. That means we have;

    Romulo? He may be in the pen. Maybe not.

    That’s an awful lot of starters in Scranton.
