As much as I’m down on the whole concept of the World Baseball Classic and wish the Yankees didn’t participate, the fact remains six went. And while their reps in such a competition carry both greater risk and less value than the more controlled environment of spring games where they could be focusing on ironing out weaknesses and expanding their toolbox, it was very helpful to see’s Randy Miller provide a summary progress report this week on how they’re all doing.

Koji Sasahara, The Associated Press
(Thankfully, no injuries appear in his report, unlike those on some other MLB contingents.)

Dellin Betances, DR reliever
WBC stats: 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 3 games, 2 IP, 2 hits, 0 runs, 2 K, 3 BB…

Didi Gregorius, DH, Netherlands
WBC stats: .348 average, 23 AB, 8 hits, 4 doubles, 1 HR, 8 RBIs, 0 K, 5 games…


Tyler Clippard, USA reliever
WBC stats: 1-0, 0.00 ERA, 2 games, 3 IP, 0 hits, 0 runs, 5 K, 1 BB…

Tommy Layne, Italy reliever
WBC stats: 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 3 games, 3.1 IP, 4 hits, 0 runs, 4 K, 3 BB…

Donovan Solano, Colombia 2B
WBC stats: .267 average, 14 AB, 3 hits, 2 RBIs, 4 K, 3 games…

Giovanny Gallegos, Mexico RHP
WBC stats: 0-0, 4.50 ERA, 1 game, 2 IP, 4 hits, 1 run, 1 ER, 1 HR, 1 K, 0 BB…”


All but Solano are on the Yankees 40-man roster and are either starters or have an excellent chance to see playing time in the Bronx this season.

Gallegos has been optioned to Scranton-Wilkes Barre and will start the season with the Triple A RailRiders.

Solano, who was outrighted off the 40-man roster last winter following an impressive September call-up replacing an injured Starlin Castro and was re-signed to a minor league deal, is one of 15 infielders remaining on the spring camp roster after Wednesday’s roster cuts.

Good stuff. I had to share it! Enjoy!
