The Yankees made their moves to protect young players from the Rule 5 draft, and they included their high-upside, injury-marred second baseman.
This afternoon, the team added RHP David Phelps, RHP D.J. Mitchell, OF Zoilo Almonte, INF Corban Joseph and INF David Adams to the 40-man roster. All five would have been eligible for the Rule 5 had they not been protected with a 40-man spot.
