Its minor news on such a busy day, but the Yankees made their first round of cuts today.

LHP Manny Banuelos
RHP Dan Burawa
RHP Adam Miller
RHP Brett Marshall
RHP Ryan Pope
RHP Graham Stoneburner
RHP Chase Whitley
2B Corban Joseph
2B David Adams
C Gary Sanchez
C/3B J.R. Murphy
C Kyle Higashioka
OF Zoilo Almonte
OF Melky Mesa

UPDATE, 5:33 p.m.: To clarify, all of these players were simply reassigned to the minor league complex except the guys who are on the 40-man. They had to be optioned to a specific level.

Adams and Almonte were optioned to Double-A Trenton.

Joseph and Mesa were optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Those assignments can change between now and Opening Day, but that’s where those four are assigned for now.
