NOTABLE INCLUSIONS

Considering the Yankees announced the signings of catcher Max McDowell, infielder Matt Duffy and righthander Dan Otero on Sunday, those would all count as notable inclusions. McDowell, it should be noted, has a career 42% caught-stealing rate in the minor leagues. Beyond that group, the Yankees invited three of their excellent group of low-level righthanders—Luis Medina, Luis Gil and Alexander Vizcaino—to Summer Camp to get them some sort of development this season in the likely absence of a minor league season.

NOTABLE EXCLUSIONS

With Medina, Gil and Vizcaino in the fold, it was a little surprising not to see the fourth member of that Class A pitching collective, righthander Roansy Contreras, included. Contreras has the least powerful stuff of the group, but was most consistent with his arsenal. No. 1 prospect Jasson Dominguez, too, was left off the roster. That's understandable considering he's yet to play an official game. Similarly, the Yankees added neither of their young, talented shortstop prospects—Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe—to the mix.

PARTING THOUGHTS

Unsurprisingly, the Yankees have loaded their roster with power. They have big-name boppers among their position players and a host of live-armed pitchers they can bring out of the bullpen. Medina's inclusion is particularly intriguing, considering he has some of the best stuff in the group but also has extremely volatile command and control and hasn't pitched above high Class A.
