    • Horne among slew of Yankees cuts

      News: The Yankees reassigned RHP Alan Horne, RHP Jeff Marquez, LHP Chase Wright, RHP Steven Jackson, RHP Daniel McCutchen, RHP Mark Melancon, RHP Scott Strickland and 3B Marcos Vechionacci to minor league camp. Also, they optioned RHP Steven White to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
      Analysis: Horne, Marquez, Wright and White should help the Yankees at some point this season. But all of these guys are nothing more than minor league depth at the start of the season. Ignore them in all Fantasy leagues at this point.
    • Vechionacci cut from Yanks' camp

      News: The Yankees reassigned 3B Marcos Vechionacci to minor league camp Monday.
      Analysis: Vechionacci is nothing more than organizational depth at this point in his career. Ignore him in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
    • Yankees hand out spring invites

      News: The Yankees signed C Jason Brown, 2B Bernie Castro, RHP Dan Giese, UTL Nick Green, LHP Heath Phillips, OF Gregory Porter, SS Cody Ransom, RHP Darrell Rasner, RHP Scott Strickland, LHP Billy Traber and 3B Marcos Vechionacci to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training. They also invited farm hands C Kyle Anson, OF Justin Christian, OF Colin Curtis, 1B Eric Duncan, OF Brett Gardner, RHP Alan Horne, OF Austin Jackson, RHP Steven Jackson, RHP Daniel McCutchen, RHP Mark Melancon, C Jesus Montero, C P.J. Pilittere, C Austin Romine and OF Jose Tabata to spring training.
      Analysis: All of the minor league signees are nothing more than organizational depth at this point in their careers and can be ignored in all Fantasy formats. The list of farm hands does include some top prospects, including Austin Jackson and Jose Tabata. Consider them the most intriguing long-term keeper candidates.
    • Yankees make first spring cuts

      News: The Yankees sent INFs Marcos Vechionacci and Ramiro Pena, Cs Francisco Cervelli, Omir Santos and P.J. Pilittere, and RHP Steven White to their minor league camp on Saturday.
      Analysis: Clearly, none of these players are worth drafting at this point in Fantasy play. They find themselves in perhaps the toughest situation for a young unheralded player to be in as few get a chance to crack the Yankees roster during the season.
    • Yankees hand out spring invites

      News: The Yankees invited INF Andy Cannizaro, SS Angel Chavez, C Raul Chavez, RHP Tyler Clippard, C Ben Davis, 1B Eric Duncan, OF Brett Gardner, RHP Phil Hughes, RHP Steven Jackson, INF Ramiro Pena, RHP Ross Ohlendorf, C Peter Pilittere, C Todd Pratt, C Omir Santos, OF Jose Tabata, INF Marcos Vechionacci, RHP Kevin Whelan, and RHP Steven White to spring training.
      Analysis: Hughes and Clippard are two of the Yankees best pitching prospects, more intriguing than Ohlendorf, who was acquired in the Randy Johnson trade. Tabata is a teenage outfield phenom, while Duncan is a former prospect who will wait in the Triple-A wings until he finds consistency at the plate. Pratt is a former big league backup catcher. All of the other players are nothing more than minor leaguers to ignore on Draft Day.
    • Yanks assign Vechionacci to minors

      News: The Yankees reassigned LHP Frank Brooks, RHP J. Brent Cox, C David Parrish, INF Marcos Vechionacci, INF Ramiro Pena, 1B Eric Duncan and INF Mitch Jones to minor league camp.
      Analysis: Vechionacci is nothing more than minor league depth at this point and doesn't project to make any Fantasy impact in 2006. He is not a long-term keeper option either. Ignore him on Draft Day.
    • Vechionacci invited to Yanks camp

      News: The Yankees invited C Jason Brown, INFs Mitch Jones, Ramiro Pena and Marcos Vechionacci to spring training and announced C Irwil Rojas will not participate in major-league camp.
      Analysis: None of these players are worth considering at this point. Not even in the deepest of AL-only or long-term keeper leagues. They are not considered top prospects right now and will serve as organization depth. We doubt any of them get a sniff of the big leagues with the big-budget Yankees anyway.
