Nice nugget from New York Daily News Mark Feinsand.
According to Mark: "... Aaron Judge and Luis Severino were two of the most talked-about
players throughout the first three weeks of spring training. Sunday,
they got their walking papers.
Both blue-chip prospects were reassigned to minor-league camp, though
Joe Girardi made it clear the moves had nothing to do with their play.
'We’re sending players down now that played really well,' Girardi said. 'You start to run out of innings, you start to run out of playing time,
and the last thing you want for them is not to be ready for their
season. If we need them during the course of the season, you want them
Interesting quote from Girardi and yes, I guess it makes sense. You figure the Yankees have 3 expensive outfielders already, and with Chris Young as your 4th outfielder, they're not gonna stick some kid in there and pay millions for veterans to ride the bench. And so, Judge will continue working on his craft in the minors, and I believe we'll see the guy this season. I have no doubt actually.
By the way, there were other players that got sent down too: "OF Jake Cave, INF Cito Culver, C Trent Garrison, RHP Nick Goody, C Juan
Graterol, LHP James Pazos, RHP Diego Moreno and LHP Tyler Webb."
And there you have it.
