Yankees add to the 40-man roster


The Yankees currently have 39 spots on the 40-man roster (excluding Brian McCann and Brendan Ryan) and as we all know, the Rule 5 draft is coming up. In order to protect some of the minor leaguers in their system, the Yankees placed them on the 40-man roster. Here were the players the Yankees moved to the roster:

— INF Dean Anna
— RHP Jose Campos
— RHP Shane Greene
— CF Slade Heathcott
— RHP Bryan Mitchell
— C Gary Sanchez

It’s also worth noting the Yankees removed INF Corban Joseph from the 40-man roster.
