40-Man Roster Set, Mickey Storey Claimed

Here are some noted from the last hour or so:

  • The Yankees have added Manny Banuelos, Nik Turley, Brett Marshall, Ramon Flores, Francisco Rondon, and Jose Ramirez to the 40-man roster in order to protect them from the Rule 5 draft. Turley and Marshall were no-doubters, and if Banuelos' time of being protected without being on the roster was up, so was he. Flores and Ramirez were kind of surprising just because I don't either could fit into an MLB roster at this point. But I guess we didn't think Jose Quintana could either. And Rondon is probably the biggest surprise because he's just a loogy.
  • The Yanks also claimed Mickey Storey off waivers from the Astros. Storey, 26, started his career in the Athletics organization before moving on to the Astros where he pitched well in Triple-A for them and got a late call up for Houston in 2012 and pitched well (2.80 FIP in 30.1 IP).
