Here are a few 40-man roster moves the Yankees made this afternoon, which pretty much caps off what’s been a busy day for them.
— The Yankees have added RHP Vicente Campos to the 40-man roster. Campos was taken off the roster last winter after he was injured, but the main reason they added him was to prevent him from entering free agency. They also view him as a low risk, high reward deal.
— RHP Chris Martin has sung his last tune with the Yankees; Martin signed a one-year contract with the Nippon Ham Fighters of Japan. While there were moments that Martin seemed like a promising option for the Yankees, he just couldn’t get the job done, which ended his brief career with the Yankees. Well, it was fun using the nickname ‘Coldplay’ while it lasted.
— After declining to pick up LHP Andrew Bailey‘s option, Bailey has elected free agency which means he’ll test the waters as he prepares for a comeback season. If Bailey had stayed with the team, he would have been in Triple-A to start the 2016 season.
