The Yankees invited three more prospects to big-league camp: RHP J.B. Cox, RHP George Kontos and RHP Kanekoa Texeira.
I had sort of wondered why these guys weren’t invited in the first place. Kontos is the pitcher who was nearly included in the trade with Pittsburgh last summer. Texeira was acquired from the White Sox when Brian Cashman fleeced them for Nick Swisher.
Cox is the once well-regarded prospect who has had some ups and downs with the organization. He once projected as a late-inning reliever and now needs to prove himself after an uneven 2008 that saw him appear in only 39 games.
(I’m trying to come up with stuff not related to A-Rod, steroids and Selena Roberts. Work with me people. Work with me).
