The Yankees optioned pitcher Bryan Mitchell and outfielder Ramon Flores to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Sunday while reassigning eight players to minor-league camp. Mitchell allowed six earned runs in 7 1/3 innings this spring. Flores hit .206/.270/.412 with two home runs in 34 spring at-bats. In addition to the options, the Yankees reassigned catchers Francisco Arcia and Kyle Higashioka, infielders Cole Figueroa and Jonathan Galvez, outfielder Slade Heathcott and pitchers Kyle Davies, Jacob Lindgren and Nick Rumbelow to minor-league camp.
The Yankees signed infielder Jonathan Galvez to a minor league contract.
The Padres have sent pitcher Keyvius Sampson to Triple-A El Paso and outfielder Rymer Liriano to Double-A San Antonio. They have reassigned pitcher Leonel Campos and shortstop Jonathan Galvez to minor league camp.
Padres shortstop Jonathan Galvez was back on the field for Wednesday's drills after missing a week due to a groin injury, MLB.com reports. Galvez was able to run the bases Wednesday and could make it into Thursday's game against Seattle, depending on how he responds after Wednesday's practice. He's likely ticketed for Triple-A El Paso to begin the season.
Padres shortstop prospect Jonathan Galvez has tweaked his groin and will be sidelined for a few days, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The 23-year-old Galvez is working out of the minor league camp. He batted .278 at Triple-A Tucson in 2013, but struck out 104 times in 455 at-bats.
