Hughes among six Yankees cuts
The Yankees made six roster moves prior to today’s game:
Phil Hughes, Steven Jackson and Anthony Claggett were optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, while Humberto Sanchez was optioned to Double-A Trenton.
Additionally, Jason Johnson and Sergio Mitre have been sent across the street to Minor League camp. Brian Cashman said there just aren’t enough innings to go around this late in camp.
