Corona removed from 40-man roster

The Yankees have made three more moves to get their 40-man roster situated.

• INF Reegie Corona has been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He’s accepted the assignment.

• RHP Joba Chamberlain has been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list.

• OF Justin Maxwell has also been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list.

Nothing too surprising or significant about these moves. The Yankees have to take players off the 60-day eventually. The fact Maxwell wasn’t outrighted suggests the Yankees would like to hold onto him for a possible big league role next season. Taking Corona off the roster was an obvious move after he missed all of this season recovering from an arm/shoulder injury. Corona has some speed and versatility, but he’s easily eclipsed by Eduardo Nunez and Ramiro Pena.

The Yankees 40-man roster now stands at 39.
