The Yankees' initial 60-man player pool for the 2020 MLB season contained only 58 players, giving them only a little wiggle room to add more players soon and/or or down the road.
Per MLB rules, players on the existing 40-man roster do not need to be included in the 60-man player pool, and pool players don't need to be added to the 40-man roster unless they are added to the active roster during the season.
If a player is added to and then removed from the 60-man player pool (for a reason other than injury, suspension, paternity leave, etc.) he cannot be added back on, with teams also running the risk of losing that player to another team.
