Quick hit: Solarte makes the team, Nunez to AAA

Yangervis Solarte won the final roster spot and Eduardo Nunez was optioned to Triple-A.

The Yankees do not have to make a final 40-man roster move until Tuesday but this is pretty big. A lot of people were wondering if the Yankees’ “allegiance” to Nunez would play a role in the decision but apparently it hasn’t.

Congratulations to Solarte who had himself a very strong Spring.

1. C Brian McCann
2. 1B Mark Teixeira
3. 2B Brian Roberts
4. SS Derek Jeter
5. 3B Kelly Johnson
6. LF Brett Gardner

8. RF Carlos Beltran
9. DH Alfonso Soriano
10. OF Ichiro Suzuki
11. C Francisco Cervelli
12. IF Dean Anna
13. IF Yangervis Solarte
14. SP1 CC Sabathia
15. SP2 Hiroki Kuroda
16. SP3 Ivan Nova
17. SP4 Masahiro Tanaka
