Yankees cut three more from Major League camp


Via Marc Carig, the Yankees have reassigned Steve Garrison, Ryan Pope, and Eric Wordekemper to minor league camp. The first two are on the 40-man roster, so they were optioned down. I could be wrong, but I believe there are now 36 players left in big league camp, not counting the injured Frankie Cervelli, Reegie Corona, and Colin Curtis. Manny Banuelos is still there, which is kinda surprising.

    Can you recall someone’s stock skyrocketing as much as Banuelos’ has? It really seems he’s just shot up charts, maybe that’s just my perception.

    Not that I’m complaining, the Yankees need quality LHP — I can remember scanning MiL rosters in 2008 or so, and the most promising name was Mike Dunn.

    See Six inning Phil made it to 7. Another 2 out rbi and average performance. Hope they aren’t expecting alot.

    • Mike Axisa

      And what exactly does this have to do with the cuts?

    • Tank the Frank

      Dude…what?!? He struck out seven and walked zero. His fastball and changeup looked very, very good. If he goes 7 IP, 3 ER, 0 BB, 7 K in every start he’d be a Cy Young winner. I would be more excited but it’s a) spring training and b) off topic.

      Is that you Steve Lombardi of waswatching?

        He’s too busy picking on A-Rod lately.

        Considering how uneventful the last couple of weeks of Spring Training can be, this running conversation/feud has actually been pretty entertaining. I almost want Banuelos on the Opening Day roster just to see the fireworks around here.

    We so excited.

    • Sabermetrically Challenged

      Cashman lied? we better not keep our hopes up though, it’s probably just extra exposure considering he will probably make his debut in the late summer

  • Esteban

    So Wordekemper’s still available for trades? Wordekemper, Melky Mesa, and Brandon Laird for Liriano. Get on it Cash.

    • Mike M

      Throw in Mitre and make it a three team deal. Yanks acquire Brandon Inge and Bronson Arroyo. Mike Francesa would die a happy man

    Not for me!!! He belongs, don’t you know?

  • A.D.

    “Bubba Crosby is out CF”
    “Swisher is our 1B”
    “We won’t sign a type A reliever”

    Maybe Manny to the rotation is not out of the question

    • MStezano

      don’t forget “Betemit is our 3B”
