Final spring transactions

Minus one, because for some unexplained reason, the Yankees still have not officially added Clay Rapada to their roster, although they will.

Here is what they have announced:

Acquired C Chris Stewart from San Francisco in exchange for RHP George Kontos; recalled RHP David Phelps from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre; optioned C Francisco Cervelli to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre; released INF Bill Hall; placed RHP Joba Chamberlain (torn right medial collateral ligament and an additional right ankle dislocation); RHP Brad Meyers (right labrum strain) and C Austin Romine (low back strain) on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to 3/26; placed LHP Cesar Cabral (left elbow fracture) and RHP Michael Pineda (right rotator cuff tendinitis) on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to 3/31.

Hall did not have an out in his contract but asked for, and was granted, his release when he did not make the roster. The other veterans in camp -- Dewayne Wise, Jayson Nix and Doug Bernier -- remain with the organization and will probably be optioned to Scranton. C Gustavo Molina will either be sent to AA Trenton or, if he prefers, released.
