    Maybe but NY really doesn’t have a 40 man crunch this year, and if they do add someone, that means they have to stay there all season or be exposed when taken off.

    True, but it could also be that the Yankees feel they need X spots to protect the mL players they feel need to be protected in the Rule 5 draft. If they happen to sign someone before (or even after) they protect these players, then Higgy becomes a casualty with Lavarnway providing depth.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    Unless they trade him for Kluber, Paxton or Carrasco.

    16 year old Osiel Rodriguez (he turns 17 this week) and 18 year old Anthony Garcia move into the MLB.com top 30 NY prospect list, replacing Sheffield and Swanson. That makes 11 teenagers in NY's top 30 there, that is a ton of youth for better and worse.
