Yankees Release 5 Players as MiLB Spring Training Ends

On Friday night the Yankees announced their preliminary rosters for their full-season affiliates. But they also released another five players from their minor league contracts.  Among those released were left-handed pitcher Justin Kamplain, right-handed pitcher Dallas Martinez, infielder L.J. Mazzilli, and outfielders Devyn Bolasky and Jordan Scott.

Kamplain, 26, has been with the Yankees since being drafted in the 18th round of the 2014 draft.  In 112 career minor league games, 37 starts, he owns a 13-18 record with a 3.51 ERA and 310 strikeouts in 317 2/3 innings pitched.

Martinez, 24, spent four seasons in the Yankees organization before being loaned to a team in the Mexican league for the 2018 season.  In 68 career minor league games he owns a 13-6 record with a 3.61 ERA and 170 strikes outs in 232 innings.

Mazzilli, 28, was traded to the Yankees prior to the start of the 2018 season in exchange for outfielder Kendall Coleman.  In 79 games for the RailRiders in 2018, he hit .243/.315/.400 with 15 doubles, seven home runs, and 25 RBIs.

Bolasky, 26, has been with the Yankees since being drafted in the 31st round of the 2014 draft.  In 302 career minor league games he hit .267/.334/.340 with 39 doubles, 14 triples, three home runs, and 89 RBIs.  He reached as high as Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Scott, 21, was drafted by the Yankees in the 14th round of the 2016 draft out of IMG Academy.  In three seasons in the organization, he hit .208/.332/.371 over 131 games with 15 doubles, four triples, 16 home runs, and 54 RBIs.
