Most Popular Article of the Week: Jake Cave Returned to New York Yankees

The New York Yankees had many hard decisions to make this offseason regarding their 40 man roster and specifically the Rule 5 Draft. Not everyone could be protected and many were left out there for any team to have including outfielder Jake Cave despite a strong 2015 campaign. Cave was taken by the Cincinnati Reds in the draft and was given a shot in the everyday spring training lineup to crack the club but couldn't and was ultimately designated for assignment.

Cave cleared waivers and had to be offered back to New York and the Yankees took back their former farmhand this afternoon during the Opening Day game with the Houston Astros. Cave is headed back to Triple-A. Welcome back.
