Spring Training is almost over and the rosters are thinning out at the Yankees minor league complex. After the Bronx Bombers released 12 players and catcher Collin Slaybaugh retired we have word of another retirement. Minor league pitcher Cameron Pongs has voluntarily retired from baseball.
Pongs, 23, was a non-drafted free agent the Yankees signed last year out of Lewis-Clark State. He appeared in 11 games, 1 start, for the Gulf Coast League Yankees. He owned a 1-2 record with a 6.75 ERA, allowing 11 earned runs over 14 2/3 innings pitched and striking out 7. Opposing hitters had a .394 batting average against him.
