And you know what? That's OK.  That's what the Spring is for.  Work out the kinks and see what everyone has.  Some guys get an opportunity and shine. Some players just can't make the cut.  It doesn't mean there's no future... it means they need more work.  All good.

I mean, look at Chance Adams.  He's struggled and so, the Yankees re-assigned him.  The New York Daily News has the story:

"Many scouts wonder whether Chance Adams can eventually be a starter in the big leagues. After an abysmal outing on Wednesday, those questions remain. Adams was shelled by the Orioles...

Adams said his velocity was also down — usual for him as he builds up his arm strength and gets ready for the upcoming season — but he didn't want to use it as an excuse, as his command was poor."

Sadly, it just sounds like he wasn't prepared, be it in the off season, or just building up to that start.  Whatever the case, the Yankees felt he needed to work on things, and so, that's where we are. He should start in AAA, but some scouts, according to the Daily News believe he could eventually emerge as a reliever.  We shall see.

I personally think the decision was the correct one from the Yanks perspective.  We'll hopefully see this guy this season. I have faith.  He's just not ready.

Be Read. Get Known.
