Yankees' Rico Noel: Outrighted to Triple-A
Noel was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. The 26-year-old seemed highly unlikely to maintain his 40-man roster spot through the offseason, having posted a .181/.302/.207 line between Double-A and Triple-A in 2015, and then serving almost exclusively as a pinch-runner after his September callup. Perhaps Noel will attend spring training as a non-roster invitee, but he seems destined to spend most of 2016 as organizational depth.
