Yankees RHP Chase Whitley among latest roster cuts
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) The Yankees announced several roster moves on Thursday, per the team's official website. The team optioned right-hander Chase Whitley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and optioned infielders Nick Noonan and Rob Refsnyder and catcher Eddy Rodriguez down to minor-league camp.
Chase Whitley put together a dominant spring, but lost the fifth spot on the rotation to Adam Warren. He registered a 1.17 ERA over 15 1/3 innings of work.
Yankees still considering Robert Refsnyder for Opening Day roster
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/1/15) Yankees second baseman Robert Refsnyder is still being considered for an Opening Day roster spot after shortstop Brendan Ryan went down with a calf injury Wednesday, reports The Journal News.
"The young man, I think, has continually improved," manager Joe Girardi said. "He's a name that I'm sure is going to fly around a lot today."
Refsnyder is hitting .333 with five RBI in 39 plate appearances this spring.
"Things can happen quick," Girardi said. "I think a lot of clubs hold their breath this time of year that you leave camp the way you are. Sometimes it doesn't happen and you've got to deal with it. … Didi and Drew are healthy, so we're going to have to look at probably more of a second baseman in a sense. You could look at a second baseman more than a shortstop because you have two shortstops."
Yankees' Cashman: Stephen Drew the 'smart play' at second
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Stephen Drew has been outhit by two Yankees prospects this spring, but GM Brian Cashman said the veteran was still the "smart play" at second base.
Rob Refsnyder is hitting .343 with five doubles. Jose Pirela is hitting .370.
Meanwhile, a hot stretch over the weekend brought Drew to .243.
"I know there’s a lot of dialogue wrapped around Refsnyder and Pirela," Cashman said, per the Journal News. "But I think also that those guys have shown they still have work to do on the defensive side still. ... The bats are impressive, but you’ve seen the defensive stuff they’ve shown us in short sample sizes as well. ... So right now I’m pretty comfortable that Drew signing was the smart play for us on the front end."
Refsnyder has made five errors and Pirela two.
Drew had a three hit game on Friday, homered on Saturday and doubled on Sunday.
"He’s looked really good at the plate," Cashman said. "He’s looked so much better than last year the last week to 10 days. That’s encouraging. I know it’s got to be building his confidence and having memories of what he was prior to last year, because that’s certainly what’s playing around in my head. I feel much better about the situation right now."
Yankees still interested in Stephen Drew for second base job
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(1/5/15) While the Yankees are content having Jose Pirela and Robert Refsnyder battle for the second base job in the spring, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports the team is still interested in bringing back Stephen Drew to fill the role.
In 2014, Drew hit .237 with seven home runs and 27 RBI for the Red Sox and Yankees. Along with considering Drew, the team will also explore other free agent and trade options.
Yankees brass praises rookie second basemen
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/22/14) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has indicated that rookies Robert Refsnyder and Jose Pirela might have the inside track on the starting second base job in 2015.
Free agents such as Stephen Drew and Asdrubal Cabrera could be more palatable options in teaming up with inexperienced shortstop Didi Gregorius as a double play combination. But Cashman is certainly open to starting the year with Refsnyder or Pirela.
Cashman is high on Refsnyder, who hit .318 with 14 home runs at the Double-A and Triple-A levels last season, though he admits he hasn't seen much of him. "I know that in half a year he had nine errors in Double-A and in the seocnd half, in Triple-A, he had only three," Cashman told NJ.com. "So there's obviously a lot of improvement there. ... Very excited about his bat and his ability to get on base and do some things."
Meanwhile, Joe Girardi has spoken highly of Pirela, who batted .333 in 24 at-bats for the Yankees after his September promotion.
"He made every type of play: a slow roller, a ball to hisright, a ball to his left, a turn-and-throw play and a tag play at second," Girardi said.
