The Yankees made six more cuts tonight.
Andrew Brackman, Brandon Laird, Kevin Russo and Melky Mesa were optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Steve Garrison and Ryan Pope were optioned to Double-A Trenton.
Those assignments don’t necessarily mean the players will open the season at those levels, but it is interesting that Pope is initially optioned to Double-A and Mesa to Triple-A. I expected those assignments to be reversed.
