Yankees reassigned LHP Francisco Rondon to minor league camp.

The 25-year-old hurler has already missed a couple of weeks this spring due to tightness in his pitching shoulder, so the Yankees want to bring him along slowly. He posted a 3.92 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 85/54 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A in 2013.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that pitching prospect Francisco Rondon will be out "a couple of weeks" due to tightness in his pitching shoulder.

It doesn't appear that he required an MRI, but the Yankees want to play it safe with the young left-hander. Rondon, 25, held a 3.92 ERA with 85 strikeouts over 82 2/3 frames between Double- and Triple-A last season.

Yankees designated LHP Francisco Rondon for assignment.

Rondon, 25, had a 7.46 ERA in 12 appearances (six starts) with the Yankees' Double-A affiliate. The move clears a spot for David Huff on the 40-man roster.

Yankees purchased the contract of LHP Francisco Rondon from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Rondon, who turns 25 in April, posted a 3.93 ERA and 80/42 K/BB ratio in 71 innings this season between High-A Tampa, Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Yankees clearly thought someone would pick him up as a lefty specialist in the Rule 5 Draft, so he's now on the 40-man roster.
