RotoWire News: Choi was reassigned to minor league camp Friday, Brendan Kuty of The Star-Ledger reports. (3/24/2017)

Profile: The Yankees took a flier on Choi after he fell flat on his face in his first 54 major league games last season in Anaheim. Choi is still only 25 years old, but the Yanks have plenty of higher-upside options to man first base and left field. He's also not on the 40-man roster. With the likes of Brett Gardner, Matt Holliday, Greg Bird, Tyler Austin, Aaron Hicks, Mason Williams and Rob Refsnyder already holding down spots on said 40-man, the Yankees simply don't have much incentive to open up a roster spot for Choi to play those same positions, even if he performs well in spring training and the minors. (Scott Strandberg)

The Quick Opinion: It's not inconceivable that Choi could get some major league playing time this year in New York, but fantasy owners in all formats can ignore him on draft day.
