The Yankees added a bunch of minor leaguers via trade and minor league signings: Cody Johnson, Neal Cotts, Rafael DePaula, Neal Cotts, and Daniel Martinez.

Firstly, the Yankees picked up OF Cody Johnson in a trade with the Braves in exchange for cash considerations. Johnson has a lot of power but also strikes out a ton. He spent time with the Braves and Rangers' systems, and shouldn't be more than filler.
Rafael DePaula was a big signing in the International Free Agent market. The 19 year old right handed pitcher from the Dominican Republic was signed for $700,000 and reportedly hit 97 MPH.
Neal Cotts is a familiar name. The seven-year major league vet missed all of last season with an injury. He has a career 4.64 ERA and could fight for a bullpen spot out of spring training.
Finally, the Yankees signed P Dan Martinez. All I could find out about him was that he was a 20-year that walks a lot of people.
