Yankees cut 6 from major league camp

The Yankees roster continues to shrink. They cut three players on Saturday and then six more on Sunday as the roster now sits at just 40 players.

Ramiro Pena was optioned to Triple-A and RHP’s Manny Delcarmen and Kevin Whelan, C Jose Gil, and OF’s Colin Curtis and Cole Garner were reassigned to the minor league camp, according to Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News.

Delcarmen is the only one on this list who realistically had any shot at making the team out of spring training, but he hurt his chances when he missed time with a strained lat. With Delcarmen and Whelan gone from camp, the only other potential right handed candidates for the last bullpen spot are Brad Meyers, Adam Warren, and Matt Daley.

With Garner and Curtis out of camp the only other outfielders left in camp fighting for a job are Justin Maxwell, Chris Dickerson, and Dewayne Wise.
