Notes: Based on this, it appears Dan Giese cleared waivers and was outrighted to Scranton. … If you don’t see a particular player, it likely means he is on the disabled list or was left in extended spring training in Tampa. The Yankees have short-season minor league teams in Staten Island and in the Gulf Coast League that start up in June along with teams in the Dominican Summer League
