Yanks reworked there rosters on Saturday; trading minor league catcher Erik Kratz to the Milwaukee Brewers and releasing 1st baseman Adam Lind. They have also optioned utility player Ronald Torreyes to triple a to make room for Greg Bird. Adam Lind fell into the Yankees lap this offseason after hitting .303/.362/.513 with 14 HRs and 59 RBI's. Despite the good batting line, he was hurt by the slow market and the Yankees scooped him up on a minor league deal. But with Greg Bird back he was never going to get a shot. The most surprising move was sending fan favorite Ronald Torreyes to Triple-A. He hits in high leverage situations all over and the fans and players love him. sadly because of roster construction the Yankees decided for now he will be the odd one out. The Yankees will likely bring him back in the near future though. But now the Yankees have Clint Fraizer, Tyler Wade, Brandon Drury to go along with Torreyes in Triple-A.
