Yankees Send 10 Back to Minor League Camps

The New York Yankees have announced that they have sent down a total of ten prospects down to minor league camp as a part of their first spring cuts. Among the prospects were the Yankees top two prospects in Luis Severino and Aaron Judge.

The remaining eight prospects the Yankees sent down were C Trent Garrison, RHP Nick Goody, C Juan Graterol, LHP James Pazos, RHP Diego Moreno, LHP Tyler Webb, OF Jake Cave and SS Cito Culver.

None of these players expected to make the team out of spring training but I honestly thought the team would take a longer look at Goody, Pazos, Webb and Culver specifically. Goody is as close to MLB ready as they get and Pazos and Webb figured to fight with Justin Wilson for a little longer. Culver is running out of time and was left unprotected from the Rule 5 Draft but all can benefit from regular at bats and playing time in minor league camp so it's good for them in the long run.
