Cotts and Sisco are cut and let go

Neal Cotts and Andy Sisco, two pitchers who were, in reality, no more than candidates for the Scranton bullpen, were cut today by the Yankees. Cotts and Sisco, both left-handers who pitched in the bigs most recently with the White Sox, were signed to minor league deals earlier in the offseason.

Still, with those two out of the way, the bullpen scenarios at Trenton and Scranton are beginning to get a little more clear. Not crystal clear, but clearer for sure.

Also today, according to Matt Eddy at Baseball America, the Yankees signed 26-year-old Cuban shortstop Yadil Mujica. BA's write-up looks like this:

"Scouting info on Cuban defectors can be scarce, but Yadil Mujica appeared on the nation's preliminary roster for the ’09 World Baseball Classic and batted .358/.432/.440 that season before defecting. He had emerged as one of Cuba's most promising young middle infielders."

Given his age and pedigree, I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see him start at High-A and work his way to Trenton sometime this season.
