Just before April began and minor league players report to their respective assignments the Yankees have released two more minor league players from their contracts.  First baseman Ryan Krill and catcher Manny Argomaniz were released.

Krill, 25, was a ninth-round draft pick of the Yankees in the 2015 draft.  In three seasons with the organization, he appeared in 129 games, 111 of them with the Class-A Staten Island Yankees of the NY-Penn League.  Over 421 career at-bats, he slashed .264/.360/.373 with 22 doubles, three triples, and six home runs while driving in 59 runs.

Argomaniz, 24, was a non-drafted free agent signing of the Yankees in 2015 out of Fresno State.  The 6-foot tall catcher appeared in 89 games over three seasons, the majority of them coming at the Rookie level.  Over 236 at-bats he hit .191/.303/.254 with ten doubles, a triple, and one home run while driving in 17 runs.  Throughout his career, he has also played first base, second base, and third base as well as five games in the outfield.
