With it being the final day of camp, the New York Yankees made their decisions regarding who will get a job on the 25-man roster. There were some surprises, and some spots that were rightfully earned. Without further ado, here were the winners in camp:
The Yankees won’t announce a fifth starter until April 16th, simply because they can get away without needing one with all the off-days in between. They did announce the fourth starter, and the honor will go to…Luis Severino. Jordan Montgomery and Chad Green will start the season in Triple-A and Double-A respectively as evaluations for the fifth starter spots continue.
Debate amongst yourselves because I’m sure we all have different opinions regarding this…
The Yankees got one right!
Ronald Torreyes will be the Yankees starting infielder with Didi Gregorius on the shelf, so who’s the backup? The Yankees announced Pete Kozma has made the team as a utility infielder, which means Rob Refsnyder will start the season in Triple-A.
Finally, the Yankees announced the eight relievers that will round out the 25-man roster. The players are Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, Tyler Clippard, Adam Warren, Tommy Layne, Jonathan Holder, Bryan Mitchell and Chasen Shreve.
