Gamel, Several Others Assigned to Minor League Camp

The New York Yankees optioned several players to minor league camp following Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Headlining the following moves is outfielder Ben Gamel, who was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Gamel hit just .222 in 13 spring training games with the Yankees, but certainly has a chance play a games in pinstripes this year. Gamel looks to follow up a 2015 campaign in which he hit .300 with 10 homers and a team-high 64 runs batted in.

Along with Gamel, right-handers Tyler Cloyd, Mark Montgomery and Vinny Pestano, left-handed pitcher Richard Bleier and infielders Jonathan Diaz and Donovan Solano were also reassigned to minor league camp.

More moves are expected throughout the next couple weeks leading up to Opening Day on April 4.
