Report: Yankees Option Cessa, Reassign Five to Minor League Camp

Earlier today, the Yankees reportedly optioned Luis Cessa to Triple-A and reassigned Clint Frazier, Ji-Man Choi, Dustin Fowler, Billy McKinney and Jason Gurka to the minor league camp.

Cessa had a very disappointing spring, as he pitched to a 0-1 record and a 6.52 ERA. He was competing with Jordan Montgomery, Bryan Mitchell, Chad Green, Luis Severino and Adam Warren for two of the remaining rotation spots for New York. Luis will begin the season in the rotation at Triple-A Scranton.

For Frazier, Choi, Fowler and McKinney; the reassignment was just a matter of time.

Choi signed this off-season as a minor league free agent to be the starting first basemen at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2017.

Frazier, the Yankees second rated prospect by MLBPipeline.com, will begin the season in Triple-A to continue his development. In 20 games, Clint hit .308 with two doubles, a triple, a home run, and eight runs batted in.

Fowler and McKinney both made lasting impressions this spring with terrific performances. They will battle for a roster spot in Scranton in minor league camp, with the hopes of earning a promotion from Double-A Trenton.

The left-handed  Gurka, tossed six innings, struck out seven and pitched to a 3.00 ERA. Jason will report to Scranton and most likely begin the season in Triple-A pitching out of the RailRiders bullpen.
