Lane Adams Clears Waivers, Gets Invite to MLB Camp

The New York Yankees added another minor league option to their spring training camp this week, kind of, when they invited Lane Adams down to Tampa. I say kind of because the Yankees recently had Adams on their 40 man roster and designated him for assignment to make room for Ronald Torreyes for a second time as well. Adams cleared waivers and has been assigned to Triple-A with the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders and received his second invitation to Yankees spring training camp this season.

Adams fits the mold of may outfielders currently on the Yankees roster already. He's fast and he has a dependable glove but there is one major difference between him and say Slade Heathcott, Ben Gamel or Mason Williams. Adams can hit right-handed which is an obvious need for the Yankees going forward. Adams also has a minor league option remaining meaning he can potentially be part of Brian Cashman's Scranton Shuttle that is in the plans with the team's final bench spot.
