    Yankees make first cuts

    The Yankees reassigned four players to the minor-league camp:

    1B Eric Duncan
    C Jesus Montero
    INF Eduardo Nunez
    C Austin Romine

    The Yankees started camp with 69 players and now that the games have started there’s just not enough time and at-bats for everybody. Montero and Romine also need to start working with their pitchers they’ll actually be catching this season.

    Eric Duncan was their first-round pick in 2003 out of Seton Hall Prep.
    Montero and Romine (Groomed to replace Posada) where expected cuts, Eric Duncan seems like he will never put it together. He's a AAA lifer.

    To bad we don't get to see Jesus on any of the televised games, kid hit a bomb the other way yesterday. Oh well.

    I remember when Duncan was one of the top prospects in their system. It's ashame he never panned out.

    Actually Austin Romine is probably the better long term prospect.He has a cannon for an arm and a very good bat.Only reason Yanks were able to get him is that he needed surgery on his hand when the draft came around and Yankees are more willing to sign these injured players with huge upside for big time bucks than other teams are willing to.
