Yankees re-sign a few minor league free agents

From Baseball America’s minor league transactions:

The Yankees have re-signed RHP Manny Barreda, RHP Kelvin Castro, RHP Jairo Heredia, RHP Diego Moreno, LHP Francisco Rondon and C Francisco Arcia.

None of these is a big name prospect, though Barreda and Heredia did get at least mild prospect buzz a few years ago. Heredia in particular seemed to be a real high-upside kind of guy in the lower levels, but he’s had trouble staying on the field long enough to really advance.

The most familiar name is probably Rondon, who was added to the 40-man roster last winter only to get off to a slow start this season and get removed from the 40-man in May. He’s a hard-throwing lefty who pitched pretty well once he was moved back into the Double-A bullpen.
