The move of the Yankees non-tendering Huff and tendering Esmil Rogers was quite a shocker, but it was also surprising the Yankees let Heathcott and Campos become free agents as well.
Two years ago, both Heathcott and Campos were among the Yankees top 5 prospects according to Baseball America. Heathcott was a first round Yankees draft pick and Jose Campos was a piece from the Michael Pineda / Jesus Montero trade. However, injuries were a factor in a lack of development; Campos had Tommy John Surgery and Heathcott underwent multiple operations during his tenure in the Yankees minor league system, including a second knee surgery this season.
The Yankees can always re-sign Heathcott, Campos and Huff to minor league contracts, or they could miss out on them completely if another team gives them a better offer.
