Yankees make first cuts of spring training: Jose Ramirez and Francisco Rondon

USA TODAY Sports

Injuries are lovely, aren't they

The Yankees made their first cuts of the spring today, and it should not be too surprising to see who they are:

Welp. Jorge Castillo reported a week and a half ago that Rondon had to be shut down for a few weeks due to tightness in his left shoulder. The lefty reliever turns 26 in April and he has only pitched three games above Double-A Trenton, soooo not the best start to camp for him.

Meanwhile, Ramirez's back locked up while warming up during workouts on February 26th, and he had to go get MRIs on his back and oblique, which revealed another oblique flare-up. The 24-year-old Ramirez has a ton of potential (Baseball Prospectus writer Jason Parks ranked him the second-best prospect in the system), but he just cannot seem to ever stay healthy. Hopefully both young pitchers can make a full recovery.
