Almonte, Joseph, Warren optioned to Triple-A

The Yankees trimmed their spring roster prior to tonight’s game, optioning outfielder Zoilo Almonte, infielder Corban Joseph and right-hander Adam Warren to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte might be the most notable cut of the three. The Yankees had viewed him as a contender for their outfield mix and project him as a future corner outfielder. The urgency to rush the switch-hitting Almonte along was diminished by the Yanks’ signing of Ben Francisco this week.

Juan Rivera, Matt Diaz and Ronnier Mustelier are also alive in the competition for playing time.
