Yangervis Solarte wins final bench spot

Joe Girardi has made a decision and Yangervis Solarte will take the final spot on the roster. Eduardo Nunez has been optioned to Triple-A as a result. The Yankees will have to make a 40-man roster move on Solarte, but they aren’t required to do so until Tuesday.

Girardi explained Solarte was the better choice because they felt he would do a better job as a backup second and third basemen while Dean Anna would be the backup shortstop. Solarte won’t leave with the team today and instead he’ll travel to Houston tomorrow.

    Thank goodness they're going with fresh faces in Anna and Solarte, we already know what Nuneeez can do.
