Yankees add Oswald Peraza, Alexander Vizcaíno, Roansy Contreras, and Yoendrys Gomez to 40-man roster

It’s not much, but there’s finally some transaction news to pass along this offseason. The Yankees added Oswald Peraza, Alexander Vizcaíno, Roansy Contreras, and Yoendrys Gomez to the 40-man roster in order to protect them from being eligible for next month’s Rule 5 draft. Brief snippets on those four can be found in our Rule 5 protection preview. The Yankees’ 40-man roster is now full.

Notably not protected: Addison Russ and Trevor Stephan. Relief profiles like those two tend to get picked in the Rule 5, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see either of them chosen.

Lastly, here’s how you all voted on who the team should protect:

    What will be interesting to watch is how many players get picked in the Rule 5 Draft. Wouldn’t surprise me to see teams looking to save money go this route, so I’m expecting more players to be taken this year compared to last. On the Yankees side, for example, some team looking for infield help could easily take Holder and give him a role.

    Wouldn’t today also be a day where teams would cut players they don’t plan to tender a contract to? I know the official non-tender day is a couple weeks off, but I was half expecting maybe a trade, perhaps a Mike Ford being moved, to clear some space. No, not Gary Sanchez. He’ll be catching for the Yankees next season.
