Yankees add three to 40-man roster

The Larry Rothschild conference call is beginning now, and it started with two bits of news.

Dellin Betances, Brandon Laird and Ryan Pope have been added to the 40-man roster to protect them from the Rule 5 draft.

Also, the Yankees have traded for Braves minor league outfielder Cody Johnson, who will be added to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre roster. He was acquired for cash.

UPDATE: I should note that Johnson has been added to the Scranton roster for now. Doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be there in April. The Yankees have not said where he’ll open next season.
