The Somerset Patriots announced their "break camp" roster in a release sent out Sunday afternoon.

Among the 29 players who will start their seasons with Somerset, the new Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, are pitcher Luis Gil and outfielder Estevan Florial.

Gil is the No. 4-ranked prospect in the Yankees organization by Baseball America, and Florial is the No. 10-ranked prospect. Florial reached the majors last year, going 1-for-3 in the only game he played for the Yankees.
