Yankees cut eight

Peter Abraham reported that the Yankees reassigned the following eight players to the minor-league camp today:

OF Todd Linden
1B-OF Shelley Duncan
OF John Rodriguez
INF Doug Bernier
INF Justin Leone
C P.J. Pilittere
C Chris Stewart
RHP David Robertson

This is what Joe Girardi had to say about Robertson:

“He threw the ball OK,” Girardi said. “It’s important he go down and get some work. Robbie’s performed at this level pretty well at times and he performed for us at spring training pretty well at times. He’s a man who has, I think, a good future. He needs to continue a little to mature a little but as pitcher. I told him there’s a chance we’ll see him this year.”
I think 10 strikeouts in 6 2/3 spring innings is a little better than "OK." I hope he'll get another chance to prove himself sooner rather than later.

I think he's just out of luck because there are a bunch of Yankee relievers having strong springs.

Well, pitching decisions has not been a Yankees strong point in the last few years.
