Stenhouse, 20, was signed as an International Free Agent on January 18, 2014 and made his professional debut in 2015 with the Gulf Coast League Yankees.  He spent both the 2015 and 2016 seasons in the Gulf Coast League where he went a combined 4-2 with a 3.49 ERA striking out 44 in 38 2/3 innings of work.  The Australian native held opposing batters to just a .146 average over 24 games and walked 20 batters in his career.

Ordaz, 21, was signed on February 23, 2012 as an International Free agent.  He made his professional debut that season in the Dominican Summer League.  He would go on to appear in 43 career games, all but one of them in the DSL.  He earned a 1-6 record with a 6.28 ERA over 81 2/3 innings striking out just 63 batters and allowing 46 walks.

Expect to see more releases as the season approaches.
