Yankees add veteran Matt Duffy to 2020 summer camp roster

The Yankees have set their roster for summer camp, using 58 of the 60 available spots with players set to report to The Bronx on Wednesday.

The player pool includes all 39 players on their 40-man roster, plus 19 extras, including infielder Matt Duffy, who signed a minor-league contract with the club earlier on Sunday. Rosters had to be submitted by 4 p.m. Sunday.

The Yankees will have to cut down their roster to 30 players by the time the regular season is expected to begin on July 23 for a 60-game schedule.

Among the prospects included on the 60-man roster are pitchers Deivi Garcia, Luis Gil, Clarke Schmidt, Michael King, Alexander Vizcaino and Luis Medina, infielder Kyle Holder and outfielder Estevan Florial.

In other moves, the Yankees also signed catcher Max McDowell to a minor-league contract, released and re-signed reliever Dan Otero to a minor-league contract, and placed Luis Severino (Tommy John surgery) on the 60-day injured list. The 29-year-old Duffy, who won a World Series with the Giants in 2014 and is a lifetime .282 hitter, had been in the Rangers’ camp this spring.

Here’s a look at the preliminary roster:

Pitchers (33): Albert Abreu, Domingo Acevedo, Daniel Alvarez, Luis Avilan, Zack Britton, Luis Cessa, Aroldis Chapman, Gerrit Cole, Deivi Garcia, Luis Gil, Chad Green, David Hale, J.A.
